Established in 1676, Lock & Co. is the oldest hat shop in the world & one of the oldest family-owned businesses still in existence. The brand has two royal warrants and has graced the heads of some of the greatest figures in history. Admiral Lord Nelson wore the bicorne into the Battle of Trafalgar, while Sir Winston Churchill adopted the Cambridge and Homburg hats as his trademarks and Charlie Chaplin favoured the Coke bowler – the world’s original bowler hat. The current men’s and women’s wear ranges centre around these core classics, while also offering a sprinkling of seasonal styles and exclusive designs. However, for something extremely luxury, Lock Couture showcases the brand’s most exquisite hats, handcrafted in their workroom at the top of their shop on St James’s Street, London.
