A vintage style Shelby cap, made of 100% softened cotton (emerized). 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.
In many professions, travelling is an obligatory part of one's professional work, and in other - it is a nice addition to one's daily routine. Regardless of the nature of your trip, one thing does not change - you should look great on a business trip. The whole outfit is important
In Poland, men choose hats for practical reasons - they are to protect against low temperatures. The British, however, have a slightly different approach to hats. In the British Isles, street fashion skillfully combines caps, flat caps and hats with elegant suits, coats or bombers jackets.
May, June, July and August are by far the warmest months of the year. Warm days encourage people to spend time outside actively. It is worth remembering to wear suitable headgear. There's no secret that for several seasons now, a hat has been unquestionably one of the most popular accessories for warmer days.

What a great cap. The fit the quality of the material and product. Only place to buy caps and hats is at Sterkowski. Thank you for a great cap and to J. for the quality and size control.
Sterkowski's caps have never disappointed me. In wool leather or cotton their caps are wonderful. But this time the order took 70 days to arrive when on average I receive packages from 18 to 25 days. Aun así no me arrepiento de la compra. Siempre quedo satisfecho con las gorras Sterkowski mis favoritas en todo el mundo.
Couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. Beautifully crafted from high quality materials. This one will get lots of wear and I'll gladly recommend you to my hat wearing friends. Thank you!
This is a great summer newsboy. It has a narrower crown and more modern look than the peaky blinders which I also own. Sterkowski is a great company with good quality products that will last a long time judging by the construction.
Love this cap! It is very eye catching and different. The quality is first class Sterkowski is the best !
