A symbol of sophistication, this grey plaid Gatsby cap brings a dose of colored fun to a traditionally conservative design. The Grey plaid Wool Harris Tweed has been hand loomed and used to create a cap which features maroon and taupe accents.
The Harris Tweed light weight wool is sourced from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. This wool is made by a cottage industry of weavers who work out of their homes and garages, powering their looms with bicycles. We have imported this traditional material and created a limited batch of these Gatsby caps with the expertise of our milliners in Brooklyn, NYC.
The inner lining features soft lambs’ skin over the forehead and quilted polyester under the wool for maximum comfort.
The cap has a bronze snap that allows it to be worn in two different fashions. The snap is visible when the hat is opened and invisible when snapped shut.
The brim itself is malleable to change from a curved baseball cap shape to a flat bill 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.
