The flat cap is a rounded men's cap with a small stiff brim in front. Cloths used to make the cap range from Original Wool, tweed (most common) to cotton driving caps for summer wear, sometimes featuring air vents. Less common materials may include leather, but they are still very popular today especially in Northeastern and midwest cities where there is a strong Irish and Scottish presence. Cord flat caps are also worn in various colors.

The inside of the cap is usually lined with silk for comfort and warmth. The majority of these caps may be made in China because they are about 1/2 the cost of those made in America, but they are still made very well.

Today with the revival of the flat caps, there's a large offer on the market coming out from brands like Goorin Bros., Kangol, Stetson and others......

We have opted for Brixton and Dockers flat caps.Brixton made great flat caps (although made in China) and Dockers bring a good quality/value (as usual....).From February 2011 we will also carry a British brand of flat caps wich have an experience of more than 100 years.......
