Lock & Co is a retailer not a hat manufacturer. They use a number of makers, so a Lock & Co branded cap or hat could come from one of a number of makers (generally with a a price premium added ). I would hazard a guess that the cap is probably made for them by Lawrence & Foster in Yorkshire (they've certainly made caps for them over the last few years and the photos look like their workmanship).Sizing hats is always a gamble - you wear different hats at different points...
I'm having a hopeless start to the season - wild carded before this week, taking Costa out and putting Aguero in.

Not really - they're a pretty ordinary wide brimmed fedora without a ribbon - it's the printing that makes them that bit special (and don't get me wrong - I like them).The margins are going to be pretty big. A hand made rabbit-fur (significantly dearer than wool) hat with a liner, leather sweatband and vintage ribbon from a good custom hat maker will cost you around 200-275 USD... A machine blocked wool hat will cost well under 100 USD. I like them, and the printing makes...
Hats look good, but those prices are seriously steep for a simple unlined wool hat with a cloth sweat even with the printing.

Minor point from a hat wearer - ideally you need to specify country with hats (as with shoes Americans don't know how to size properly ) e.g. a UK 7 3/8 = US 7 1/2, UK 7 1/2 = US 7 5/8. It's not uncommon to find hats in the traditional French or Italian sizing (Punti) system either - this a very decent size converter: http://www.thehatmovement.co.uk/sizing.html Size filters will be wonderful
