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.
Harris Tweed is a fine woollen fabric with a distinctive weave originating from the Scottish Outer Hebrides. It has a typical tight, diagonal weave and the most common pattern is herringbone.

...and my head stayed nice and toasty
This cap is a absolute must have. Superb quality product from fit and finish to the quality of material used. Will buy again for the summer in a different fabric.
First the shipment was very quick. Shipment start date was 10-30-23. I received it from Poland to Texas on 11-06-23. This was a few days faster than caps I have ordered from Ireland. I don't know if I am a perfect 57cm or what but this cap fits my head just like a glove on ones hand. Most of my caps or Donegal or Kerry tweed from Ireland and they are good caps but this Harris tweed from Scotland is exceptional .Quality of workmanship is second to none. The cap has a low profile on the head and the lay of the individual panels of the cap is perfect. One cannot go wrong from purchasing a cap from the Sterkowski Shop the quality of material and workmanship as well as customer service is first rate. Thank you very much Sterkowski. Best regards Walt
This was my first order with Sterkowski and I was a little hesitant about ordering overseas. I needn't have worried. The cap fits perfectly and looks great! Wonderful Harris tweed material and impeccable workmanship. Not a stitch out of place. A bargain for what I paid. Highly recommended.
This is probably the 5th cap/hat I've ordered from these guys. All caps and hats I've ordered have been very finely made. Order your true size (measure your head with a centimeter tape) and order that size
