The Merrik Newsboy cap is made from a water resistant weathered cotton. It starts to look better with age like leather.
What is weathered cotton? It's a mixture of cotton and polyester that gives the hat a leather-like look and feel, as well as water resistant capabilities.
This has to be one of my favorite hats, and I have a good few. I love how the weathered look, looks a lot like leather. The hat feels tough, and is a quite comfortable. It looks quite well on me, and I receive many compliments when wearing it. By far on of my favorite hats I've ever owned.
