Where did the maciejówka cap come from?
The presented cut of the hat can also be found in other countries. What is known in Poland as the maciejówka cap is also sometimes referred to as the bretonka, beatlesówka or lenonka cap. The precursor of today's maciejówka cap is a simple cap with a round bottom made of woollen cloth. Above a stiffened leather or painted cardboard peak runs a strap or a rope that serves a decorative function. The maciejówka cap was worn in the 19th century, mainly in villages. During the First World War, it was commonly worn by the army and was recognised as an official part of the uniform of the soldiers of the Polish Legions. In the second half of the 20th century, a cap in a style similar to the maciejówka cap was worn by, among others, the Beatles, which is why it became popular among young people. Today, the bretonka cap can be found probably in every corner of the world. It's a cut that never goes out of style, so it's worth adding it to your wardrobe.
