Our own, modern interpretation of a baseball cap, inspired by “Alien” and “Tron” movies. This exclusive Laird cap is handmade from one piece of wool felt, and blocked as a like a hat.
The anti-basbeall cap, designed by Laird as a more ‘grown up’ cap, with references to futuristic design, aerodynamics and urban chic, this is a show stopper.
Taking the basic shape of a baseball, we wanted to make something smoother, referencing Tron, Alien and the helmets worn by the British cycling team, we looked at shapes and how to create what we wanted, it was quickly clear that a stitched cap, made from cloth wouldn’t work. The solution was to ‘block’ the cap like a hat.
It has a strong accentuated peak, and straight rise back. We love the result and design. It is a unique product and lends itself to a very urban or minimalist setting.
