Our 1920 NEWSBOY CAP is a variation of our BAKERBOY. It has 10% more volume in the head than the BAKERBOY. This means the fabric falls looser and can be pushed to the side. The 1920 NEWSBOY is a casual cap with a firm peak that can be easily bent into shape and a soft round head sewn from eight spittles. A button is sewn on top of the head for decoration. The outer material is pulled over the peak to the middle. The cap has a 2 cm wide bar all around.
The cotton fabric is not just a simple plain-colored fabric. It is the special plain-colored material. A slightly peach-like surface, an elegant sportiness, quiet but with a lot of style. A cap for every day, for every wardrobe. You can choose from eight colors. One for every day and on Sunday you wear a hat!
TESSUTI DI SONDRIO has been skillfully producing exceptional cotton fibers since 1859. In the heart of the Valtellina, surrounded by the untouched nature of the Alps. An unusual location for a textile factory that deliberately did not move into a textile district in the last century. Rather, it relied on the location in the search for pure excellence, the use of local natural resources and the use of great craftsmanship in the processing of the cotton yarns.
For more than a century, the craft tradition and the skills in processing the materials have been passed on from parents to their children. Passion and the authentic knowledge of the people who make this material led us to make caps from it.
Who doesn't know the old black and white photographs from the turn of the century. Everyone wore a hat: newsboys, longshoremen and steel workers, farmers, beggars, criminals, every trade. Back then, only noble men and women wore hats. The numerous variants of the caps were intended for busy life, mostly for work, but also for sport. The name Schieberkappe goes back to the old Berlin term “Schieber” for foreman. This type of cap was also rediscovered, now free of prejudice and class, it conquered free spirits and artists. But she still carries a symbol within her. Because no one can ignore the fact that a cap wearer exudes an individuality that would be significantly less without one.
