This newsboy cap is made of elegantly entwined blue and black Harris tweed wool in a hounds tooth pattern. Its color combination makes it the perfect accessory for a smart-casual jeans look, or a corporate outfit with some flair.
The exceptionally light wool is hand loomed by artisans in their cottages located on the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. This old-fashioned method of tweed production preserves its quality and delicacy, which is maintained once the fabric arrives to America, where it is made into this versatile hat.
It is here in Brooklyn, that we also sew in a strip of soft lambs’ skin over the inside forehead and quilted polyester lining inside the cap, making the light wool even more comfortable to wear.
The cap has a bronze snap that allows it to be opened up in front. This snap can be visible or hidden, depending on whether you choose to wear the hat open or shut and the brim itself is adjustable to either a curved baseball cap shape or a flat shape.
The hat size will stretch slightly with wear. Sizes are:
Medium (7, 22”, 56 cm)
Large (7 ¼, 22 5/8, 58 cm)
Extra Large (7 ½, 23 1/2”, 60 cm)
Extra, Extra Large (7 ¾, 24 1/4”, 62 cm).
Hats like these are known as Scally Caps, Driver Caps, Ivy Caps, Irish Caps, Newsboy Caps, Flat Caps, Gatsby Caps, Hunting Caps or Cabbie’s.
