James Lock & Co.

    Situated between The Mall and Piccadilly, Lock & Co. has been supplying the great and the good of London with fine hats since no later than 1676. In fact, the company invented the Bowler hat. Entering the store is like traveling to another era in which headwear was de rigueur for both gentlemen and ladies, and the range of fine hats on offer is unparalleled. Arranged over two floors, Lock & Co. handcrafts many of the hats it sells, and women can enjoy a bespoke service thanks to the store's in-house milliner, Sylvia Fletcher. Men too can have their hats made-to-measure – whether it's a tweed cap from Lock & Co.'s 'Country Room,' or a stylish trilby or topper – there's headgear to suit all occasions. The store stocks a comprehensive selection all year round, so you can find Ecuadorian Panama hats whether you're shopping in fall or summer. Lock & Co. also sells a range of accessories to complement its fine millinery, including elegant walking canes and ties as well as matching clutch bags.Show lessRead more
