Bespoke Linen Baker Boy, Newsboy Cap, Flat Cap. Made to measure, Eight Panel.

£20.00

Handmade to order bespoke eight panel bakerboy/flat cap in lightweight unbleached linen this fabric has a wonderful soft handle, perfect for a hot summers day and a real vintage/period feel.
The linen and contrasting chestnut 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. It is lined in either a plain cotton or a William Morris floral cotton which really complements the linen and has all the relevant labels.


'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.)
