A vintage style Shelby cap, made of 100% cotton corduroy. 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.

This is my new favorite Sterkowski Cap. I have 4 Ivy Fives - 2 Linen 1 Cotton 1 Harris Tweed. The slim profile of this Rusty is similar to the Ivy Five. It compliments my small facial features well. Once again the 54cm size fits perfectly. The Black/Yellow pattern is subtle and looks great with a black corduroy shirt jacket charcoal grey sweater or dark brown tweed jacket. The fabric appears to be iridescent in different lighting angles. The breathable Harris Tweed is comfortably warm even in a drizzle or light snow. The fabric color and style of this Rusty is very attractive. It is obvious the Sterkowski craftsmen take great pride in their work.
My daugther got me one for christmas its beautiful
