Traditional duty cap with essentially mid-east European origin. Cap is made of skin friendly materials: wool, lining is made of viscose to keep good breathability, sweatband is made of natural leather. It also has a belt with a buckle, a lacquered visor and 2 decorative buttons.
It came to Poland in XIXth century from today's Germany. At first it was considered as peasants headwear, then it became very popular when Pilsudski's Legions chose Maciejowka hat as a standard uniform headwear. In mid-war period and after II World War Maciejowka cap was worn by former Legions veterans and patriotic members of society as a tribute to Legions and their Independence deed.
Although Maciejowka is essentially a Polish cap, strictly bound to Polish history and its dramatic moments, there are also some similiar patterns throughout the world (its name is just different). This model of cap is also known as fiddler cap or greek style fisherman's cap.
In our offer you can also find replicas of Pilsudski's Polish Legions Caps. Available in big xxl and xxxl sizes. Precise handmade craftsmanship from Sterkowski family-run manufacture.
The maciejówka cap has a very long and rich history. However, to this day it is still uncertain where its name comes from. Nowadays, in its modern version, it is an elegant and interesting accessory to women's Parisian style. What are the origins of the cap and how to wear it to look fashionable?
The well-tended headgear is clean, has a nice shape and looks good. When investing in a hat or cap made of natural raw materials, make a list of rules covering storage, care and the wearing of a headgear. This will allow you to enjoy your hat or cap for a long time.
Caps and hats for men are now fashionable and generally available. Just go to the nearest shopping center and visit one of the popular chain stores. However, more and more men are finding out that the quality and logo on the label do not always go hand in hand.

Con el cabello corto soy talla 60 y así lo pedí. Lo sentí un poco más grande no mucho. No estoy acostumbrado a este tipo de gorras. Dicho lo anterior debo mencionar que desde mi particular percepción me parece que es muy voluminoso. Me pasó lo mismo con un Fedora Brixton no así con el ya descontinuado Fisherman Kangol. Tal vez mi tipo de cráneo es la variable crítica. Probaré comprando una talla menor y usar el estirador de sombreros Sterkowski.
This hat is just perfect. I was looking for a stylish and versatile hat for the cold weather and this has surpassed my expectations. Like always Sterkowski delivered an expertly crafted item in pristine condition. The quality of their items can't be beat. I highly recommend this merchant also for their excellent customer service and consistent devotion to making their customers happy.
I just received my gray example of this cap. It is perfect in every way. The look is stunning. The details such as the strap and buttons speak of quality. Every material is well chosen. The manufacture is flawless. When I try it on the sizing(60) is perfect. And one look in the mirror tells me: "You chose...wisely". I have a green example one the way and I know that I will be ordering more caps in the future. Thanks to all involved in making and shipping this cap. You have made me very happy.
I have ordered more than 15 caps maciejowka vigo bonnie peaky blinder etc. The quality is excellent. And Mateusz' customer sercie too.
This is the perfect hat. Looks great with my barn coat and is very well made . I generally wear a black Greek fisherman cap but I was thinking about one in olive drab as that is the color of most of my clothes. the leather brim with the buckled strap really sets it off. It reminds me of my Grandfathers WWII officers cap.
