Waxed Cotton Cycling Cap, Bespoke, Three/Five Panel (waterproof) BLUE, Fully Lined.


Made to measure three/five panel cycling style 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)
