Our 1920 NEWSBOY Stone has a particularly checkered look. Gray and navy, peppered with alternating light gray. Coordinated with the cut of the fabric spittle, the result is an art of interaction. The heavy wool fiber protects and warms your head and is very moisture-resistant due to its strength.
The outer material with a grammage of 650 grams is easy to wear in autumn and winter. The heavy fabric from the MAGEE weaving mill, made from pure new wool, is stiffer but gives the cap a good stand. MAGEE, one of the most traditional weaving mills in the world since 1866, woven the fabric for us.
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.
