Bespoke Waxed Cotton Baker Boy Cap, Newsboy Cap 'NEW DESIGN' 7 Colours.

£23.50

Bespoke made to measure NEW four panel bakerboy cap. This new cut has the same great shape as before, but with fewer panels the lines are cleaner and they even more waterproof than before. Made from superb waxed cotton this traditional 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 now features a triple thickness hand cut leather insert to create a great strong shape. (The leather gives a much higher quality feel than the standard plastic inserts and will mould to the individual for a better fit.) The peak is secured with a single wooden button with the button hole hidden in the centre seam and at the back the cap is now elasticated across the whole rear quarter for a better fit and even more comfort.

You can have either a plain cotton 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.)


These waxed cotton caps are avalible in Black, Navy Blue, Chestnut Brown, Olive Green, Red, Dark Brown, & Sand. As these caps are handmade to order please let me know if your require any custom detailing, alternative lining, or size.
