To measure your hat size, wrap a tape measure around your head just above your ears. The tape should fit comfortably – not too tight. Round up to the nearest size.

If you have no tape measure, you can measure with a string, which you then measure with a ruler.

A Flat cap also called Scally cap, Ivy cap or Golf cap has a history far back in time. As early as the 14th century, it was used in England and in the south of Italy.

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.

Our caps have a handmade quality and timeless style. We always start from traditional shapes, patterns and materials and then adapt them to a contemporary expression.
