I'm very pleased with this cap
I like newsboy caps because of their fullness I've been wearing them for years,. The Peaky Blinders cap is an excellent variation of the cap, the tweed is of good quality, they're very well constructed, fits comfortably in any position and looks really good. I purchase 3 of these caps so you can say that I'm very pleased with this style.
I've had this hat over a month now. I wanted to give it good breaking in before I rated it. It is excellent in material and make. Had one very similar to this one back in the 70' and 80's. Lost it and have been lackadaisically looking for one since then.
Found it in Sterkowski. Who would have thought?
Best Newsboy Cap EVER!
I have searched decades for a Newsboy Cap that looks the way it should,..........and I have finally found it. Sterkowski's Peaky Blinders caps are better made, fit better, and most importantly, look the way they should,.....GREAT. Much better than even my Irish caps. Sterkowski is the real deal;......and so are these caps!
BTW: I've ordered another color or two; now I have all of them....................for now.
The cap that I ordered on dec 16 arrived today here in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. It fits the husband head perfectly and looks wonderful. Thank you for creating fine products.
I do have a question. The card in the box has a photo of the Harley hat on the front and on the flip side is a thank you for being a good customer. "Please accept this free cap as a gift' .
What does that mean? Do I order something else to get the free gift?
Just wondering because it does look awesome.
Lovely cap well made and great fabric
I love the design and how well it goes with fabric.
my new hat
I like this hat so much I bought a second one.
Looks great, fits as expected, shipped quickly.
A world-class service combined with a quality that goes beyond anything else I have experienced, makes hats and caps from Sterkowski an excellent purchase. Yesterday I received my new cap of Peaky Blinders model, and I must say that the execution, the craftsmanship, the fit and the whole experience of the purchase, breathes quality right through!
Wonderfull hat, excellente manufacture ...I reccomend!!!!!!
I have been looking for a hat of such high quality for a long time. I found several hats similar to those from the Peaky Blinders series, however, the quality of the Sterkowski cap is high compared to caps that can be purchased from competitors. Thanks a lot to customer service for helping me choose Harris Tweed, it wears awsome and fits to head perfectly AAA++
Great quality and fits perfectly
I absolutely love this hat by far my favorite hat ive ever owned , great quality and looks awesome, 5 stars from.me.
Good style.. needs slight changes
Good shape on the front of the cap. But the volume to head size ratio is too big. The back of the cap needs to loose 1- 1.5 cm in height. Specially if anyone is going for the "peaky blinders" looks, then the fit at the back of the head needs to be much tighter..
