A vintage style Shelby cap, made of weatherproof waxed cotton from the greatest British Millerain. Waxed cotton is not only very breathable, but also has exceptional weather-resistant properties. Thanks to a special blend of waxes, it has a drier feel than common waxed fabrics and is waterproof. British Millerain was established in 1880, since then it became a pioneer of waxed cotton.
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.

I waited a while to get this cap in my size
While I love the Harris Tweed Wool caps for Wintertime the Shelby Cotton Caps for summer wear are the very best Ive found any where. superb materials and detailed craftsmanship. the best !!!
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 encontrado tan maravillosa empresa de gorras.
Beautiful excellent quality cap. Repels rain efficiently..
This is my new favorite. I've ordered a lot of hats from Sterkowski now and always feel good while I'm waiting knowing they will fit when they arrive. This time is no different and I got three different ones in this order. All nice but this particular one is really kind of special. Waxed cotton living in Florida I can actually wear it.
