Unique 'Harris Tweed' Baker Boy, Newsboy Cap, SIZE MED, 57-58cm (Barleycorn.)
Handmade eight panel bakerboy cap/flat cap made from wonderful barleycorn Harris tweed in a myriad of greens, browns, and golds (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 double 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 and it is elasticated in the hem to keep it snug.
The lining 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.)
THIS CAP IS A SIZE MEDIUM, 57-58cm.
