Collection: Newsboy/Flat Caps

This cap style has many names, Ivy cap, Gatsby cap, Driving cap and many, many more. In 1571 an act of parliament was created  that required all males over the age of six to wear a wool flat cap apparently  to stimulate wool consumption in England. This law didn’t apply to the upper class. So it was the working class who got to wear the cool caps and eventually its popularity spread across the world.
