The quintessential English flat cap, worn in Britain for hundreds of years, has become rather popular again - even being sported by the likes of Brad Pitt, Prince William and David Beckham. We have taken the traditional flat cap design and given it a more tailored, contemporary fit.
Our Harris tweed flat caps have been made from genuine Harris tweed - still hand woven on manual handlooms in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, from 100% pure wool.
Great worn as part of a tweed ensemble, or equally as good dressed down with a pair of jeans and t-shirt or jumper.
EXCLUSIVE DESIGN- These caps are a labour of love. We search Britain to source the very finest quality tweeds and then separately source a quality deep red lining and quality sweatband, that we pack up and send to our expert cap makers in the British Isles, where they are skilfully crafted into high quality British tweed caps. They are completely exclusive to our shop in Bath and website and unavailable from anywhere else in the world.
The opposite of mass manufacturing, we make our tweed caps in small production runs, adding to their exclusivity and desirability.
They come in 5 sizes, with approximately 80% of our customers taking a large.
Harris tweed is a unique cloth, made from 100% wool, that has been dyed, spun and handwoven in the Outer Hebrides - a small chain of remote and rugged islands just off the western coast of Scotland. It is still handwoven by villagers in their own cottages on traditional manual handlooms, as it has been for hundreds of years.
Harris tweed is protected by a British Act of Parliament. Every 50 metres of cloth has to be certified by an official from the Harris Tweed Authority, to prove that is genuine Harris tweed - only then can it bear the official Orb symbol of the Harris Tweed Authority.
It has been the cloth of choice for well dressed British ladies and gentlemen for centuries and is favoured by British aristocrats, the British royal family, and more recently, top designers and retailers such as Paul Smith and Hugo Boss.
A highly durable cloth, it is produced in an array of traditional and contemporary colourways, usually in a plain, herringbone, check or overcheck design.
