A few facts about the history of a flat cap

Many people associate flat caps with elderly men. They couldn’t be more wrong! Today, younger and younger men are reaching for it, although its history is long and sometimes complicated. Flat hat was first known in 14th century England – it was compulsory for men of the lower classes to wear it and breaking it was punished with heavy fines. The obligation to wear woollen hats on all Sundays and public holidays applied to all men over the age of six – an obligation imposed by the Parliament of Northern England. The trend was quickly picked up by the upper classes,

who turned flat hat into a stylish accessory to be worn when hunting, for example. It gained particular popularity in the 1920s and 1930s , with boys delivering newspapers on the streets of American cities and gang members in the Birmingham area. Today, flat caps are probably worn by everyone!

How to wear a flat cap for day-to-day use, and how for more formal occasions?

The classic flat cap is a versatile piece of headwear, suitable for many different occasions – you can wear it for everyday wear as well as for more elegant meetings and events. It all depends on a model you opt for. Wear it with jeans and a polo shirt in summer and with a coat or jacket in winter. We guarantee it will look impeccable in any of these stylings!
