At the beginning of the 20th century, when all men wore some type of headwwear, the Fat cap could be worn by the working class as an everyday cap and by the upper class during sporting activities.
The Flat cap is sewn from a single piece of fabric and has seams at the edges that create the fit. A Flat cap express a robust, obvious, timeless and sophisticated style.
