'Harris Tweed' Baker Boy, Newsboy Cap. Bespoke, Made To Measure, All Sizes Catered For (grey.)
Bespoke made to order eight panel bakerboy cap/flat cap made from superb mid grey Harris tweed, and as alway with Harris tweed it has a great weight and handle.
'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)
The wool and waxed cotton peak features a triple thickness hand cut leather insert to create a great shape. (I feel the leather gives a much higher quality feel than the standard plastic inserts.) The peak is secured with a single wooden button with the button hole hidden in the centre seam while on top there's the traditional self covered button. This cap can be either finished with a traditional style leather sweatband or elasticated in the hem to keep it snug.
You can have either a plush black satin or a floral William Morris cotton lining (for a real period feel.) Both are lightly quilted and look superb up against this tweed.
'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.)
The lining also has all the relevant labels, including a Harris orb. (Authentic Harris Tweed is issued with the Harris Tweed Orb Mark, the United Kingdom's oldest registered trademark.)
