In many cultures, red is the color of good fortune. In America, red is a traditionally festive and jovial color. This hat is no different. Made from extra light weight wool, its’ exquisite color will brighten up the dreariest winters day and is made for those who are not afraid to be noticed. Not only does this scally cap demand attention, but it gives plenty of reasons to be admired and talked about.
This fiery red tweed is imported from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland where it is made by a cottage industry of weavers who work out of their homes and garages, powering their looms with bicycles (Harris Tweed). We batch make this hat — only making about 12 of each color.
As we don’t compromise on quality, once the tweed arrives in America our milliners in Brooklyn create the cap complete with a soft lambs’ skin inner lining and quilted polyester under the wool.
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.
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.
