Did you know…
…what Lord Nelson, Princess Diana and Madonna all have in common?
They all went to the same hat shop – James Lock & Company – a supplier of hats to the well-heeled on the same premises in London’s St James’s Street for nearly 250 years with a list of past and present clients that reads like a who’s who of history.
“People think that hats are going out of fashion. But they are not. We have compared our ledgers going back more than 200 years and the tempo of the business has barely changed at about 45 to 50 customers a day.”
Nelson, the victor of the Battle of Trafalgar, had his hats made there as did Princess Diana and pop diva Madonna two centuries later.
