To measure the hat size, wrap a tape measure around the head just above the 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.

The name comes from the boys who worked selling newspapers on the streets in the late 19th century. In the UK, the model was called Baker Boy cap, but the truth is that the cap was used by more than just "Newsboys" and "Bakerboys". All men, especially from the working class, could wear this type of cap during the heyday of the early 20th century.
The Newsboy cap has a rounder, more generous and bolder shape than, for example, a Flat cap. The iconic shape of the cap is sewn from eight pieces of fabric and has a button in the middle.
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.
