Our 1920 NEWSBOY Nut Shell Bone has a light grammage. At 330 grams, the outer material is lightweight in our cap collection. The luxurious natural fiber is soft, warms your head and is water-repellent. In the classic herringbone pattern, quietly woven in the colors camel to light beige.
This outer material is easy to wear in autumn, winter and also in spring. The medium-light fabric from the MAGEE weaving mill, made from pure lamb's wool, is soft but gives the cap a good stand. Lamb's wool is very soft and less thick, making it a little less resistant than sheep's wool but just as warm. MAGEE, one of the most traditional weaving mills in the world since 1866, woven the fabric for us.
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.
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.
