Waxed Cotton Baker Boy Cap, Newsboy Cap. LARGE 59-60CM. With Horween Strap.
Handmade eight panel bakerboy cap. Made from 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. (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 a seam. This cap is finished at the back with a thick Horween leather strap and brass ratchet to keep it snug.
The cap is lined in a William Morris floral cotton which is lightly quilted 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.)
