The English Baker Boy, aka the Newsboy, The Jay Gatsby, The Fisherman’s cap, The Apple cap, The Lundberg Stetson or the Eight panel. It is a very traditional cap that has featured in many famous films, hence it is also called the Redford cap, and featured heavily in ‘Gangs of New York’.

This wider 12” shape is the most authentic Baker Boy cap, harking back to the working class caps of the 1900’s, 1950’s rockabilly, and taking us up to the recent Peaky Blinders and Boardwalk Empire characters of distinction. This cap always remains in fashion. Recommended for the more outgoing type, it packs a punch and needs to be worn with confidence and chutzpah.

Our tweed hats are wool yarn, woven together to create a luxurious cap for hunting or simply lazing in front of the fire. Among the Tweeds we stock, we include Lovat; Harris and Donegal.

To keep it in prime condition, we recommend you store in a cool and dry environment. If folding is needed, make sure the hat is folded in on itself.

If staining occurs, use steam from a kettle or a little lighter fluid (not too much) to dab dry.
If mud gets onto the cap then use a bristle hat brush to brush off once dry – important not to do when wet as this could create staining inside the yarn.

All our Tweed’s are shower proof.
