About James Lock & Co Ltd
A family owned business providing ladies and gentlemens quality headwear and a high standard of personal service developed from over 300 years of experience.
The company was founded in 1676 by Robert Davis. His son Charles continued the business and took James Lock (1731-1806) on as an apprentice in 1747. James later married Charles Davis's only child, Mary. When Davis died in 1759, James Lock inherited the company from his former master, and the Lock family, James's descendants, still own and run the company today. The main shop has been in its current location at 6 St.James's Street since 1765.
Lock is a royal warrant holder as hatter to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and Charles, Prince of Wales and also supplied many of the hats during the wedding of Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011.
In its collection Lock has for example the hat of the Duke of Wellington.
Lock produces all sorts of hats from formal wear to leisure.
