Product description

  • Sewn down visor
  • Lining: cotton
  • Sweatband: cotton
  • Fabric: Harris Tweed (100% wool)

A vintage style Shelby cap, made of genuine Harris Tweed (100% wool). Harris Tweed cloths are second to none among all wool fabrics.

Shelby has a narrower crown than the Peaky Blinders model, it is also sewn down to the visor. On the top of the crown there is a small decorative button. Cap is lined with a breathable cotton and has a cotton sweatband inside.

This model of newsboy cap is inspired by the English gang Peaky Blinders. Members of Peaky Blinders gang wore very similar caps, at the end of the 19th century, in Birmingham. After John Douglas's novel, A Walk Down Summer Lane, arised a myth about razor blades hidden between visor and crown of their caps. Those sharp razor blades were supposed to be used as a weapon, causing wounds or blindness of their victims.

Beautuful Cap

The style and craftsmanship of the Shelby is just what I hoped it would be. The Harris Tweed used is of the highest quality. Be patient with shipping. It's worth it! Looking forward to buying many more caps from Sterkowski.
