A TIMELESS CLASSIC
STILL ON-TREND
The flat cap is a soft hat made out of different types of fabric with a short, rounded visor. The flat cap is a true fashion classic that has been around for centuries. They have the unusual characteristic of being able to look vintage and modern at the same time, depending on how they are worn. One thing's for sure: they'll never go out of style. The flat cap originates from the roaring 20's in Northern England where it was called a bonnet. Sturdy flat caps were a part of the working man’s uniform, but finer variants were also considered to be suitable for upper-class Englishmen. Later on, flat caps were also worn by fashionable young men and from there quickly it became standard boys’ wear. In the 1990s the cap got a popularity boost when everyone, from rappers to pop stars, started wearing it as a fashion statement. Nowadays, thanks to multiple hit tv-shows, the flat cap is still on-trend.
HOW TO WEAR A FLAT CAP
The flat cap can be styled with different types of outfits: from casual to informal and even formal attire. Choose a tweed or wool cap that fits your head comfortably and add it to your outfit for a charming addition. Here you'll find some tips on how to style a flat cap.

ADJUST IT TO YOUR FACE
Applying gentle pressure and shaping it to a slight curve. Shape the visor to frame it perfectly to your face.

REMEMBER THE CLASSICS
Stick to the classic materials like wool with a cotton lining for fall and winter. Remember that natural materials offer better breathability and insulation.

CHOOSE A PATTERN
It depends on your outfit and what you're looking for. The prints can be subtle or quite bold. Opt for a version in check, herringbone or plaid. Otherwise a plain colour is just as suitable.

Know the material
Warm and thicker wool or corduroy are great for fall and winter while lightweight cotton is more suitable for spring and summer.
