Those sharp razor blades were supposed to be used as a weapon, causing wounds or blindness of their victims.

Good Newsboy cap in cotton.
It is a very nice newsboy cap in cotton, it is not easy to find a newsboy cap in this material in my country. Perfect for spring and summer and I love the herringbone pattern. Nevertheless, there is not much difference in the material with respect to the Shelby Cotton a cause of the difference in cost.
Aún así, me encantan las gorras Sterkowski, las mejores del mundo en cualquier material, lana, cuero, algodón, lino. Estoy agradecido por haber encantrado tan maravillosa empresa de gorras.
