Coming this October (2016) bespoke made to order six panel deerstalker caps in Harris tweeds and waxed cottons.

'Harris Tweed is a cloth that has been handwoven by islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides. Harris Tweed is protected by the Harris Tweed Act of Parliament 1993, which strictly outlines the conditions in which the cloth can genuinely be made.' (Wikipedia)

'Waxed cotton is, as the name suggests, cotton impregnated with a paraffin based wax, woven into a cloth. Widely used from the mid-19th century to the mid-1950s, the product,which originated in the sailing industry in England and Scotland, became widely used by many for waterproofing.' (Wikipedia)

They'll have two tone peaks with double thickness hand cut leather inserts, long grossgrain ribbons ties and the Harris tweed caps will have the traditional self covered button on top.

Linings are push quilted satins and William Morris floral prints.



'William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was an English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist. Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, he was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production.' (Wikipedia.)
