Bespoke Waxed Cotton Baker Boy, Newsboy Cap With Horween Leather Strap, All Sizes Catered For.

£25.00

Handmade to order eight panel bakerboys in superb waxed cotton. This traditional waterproof fabric is extremely practical and looks better the more it is worn developing a lovely vintage look.

'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)

The two tone peak features a triple thickness hand cut leather insert to create a great shape. The peak is secured with a single wooden button with the button hole hidden in a seam. This cap is finished at the back with a thick Horween leather strap and brass ratchet to keep it snug.

You can have your cap lined in either a plain linen or a William Morris floral cotton both having been lightly quilted and have 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.)
