Life is all about choices and anyone who seeks to get the most out of it appreciates having options. When Mac Belford opened his hat stores on Manhattan Avenue in Brooklyn two generations ago, he did not tell anybody that they were both under the same ownership. In fact, customers would stroll across the road between hat stores and simply enjoy the freedom of choice as a bonus to finding the perfect hat.
This transformable Ivy Cap is no different. Essentially, this accessory is four hats in one. The cap has a bronze snap that allows it to be opened up in front. The snap is visible when the hat is opened. It is invisible when snapped shut. This snap allows the wearer to switch between styles while the brim itself is also adjustable to change from a curved baseball cap shape to a flat bill shape. Versatility is a feature which makes this hat excellent, however its quality is what makes it exceptional.
This ivy cap is crafted in the USA using light weight wool imported from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. This renowned Harris Tweed is made by a cottage industry of weavers who work out of their homes and garages, powering their looms with bicycles .When it arrives in our Brooklyn factory, this tweed is used to create the wonderfully comfortable ivy caps complete with soft lambs’ skin lining which sits comfortably on the forehead and quilted polyester under the wool.
