The Newsboy Cap

Size Guide

Our premium Newsboy Cap is made in collaboration with Laird Hatters, inspired by the classic flat cap. Made in England from British tweed with a goat leather peak. Baseball Cap also available.


To measure your head take a tape measure in one hand and your head in the other. Gently wrap the tape measure around your head.

Once you are happy that the measure sits over the widest part of your forehead and reaches all the way round to the back, ask a friend to tell you how big your head is. If there is nobody to do this for you, put a thumb and finger over where the two ends meet and very gently remove the tape from around your head (again with caution) and record. Choose from Small, Medium, Large or X Large.

Maker's Notes

The Newsboy is one of Laird Hatters’ bestselling caps made even more special with a goat leather peak. We pored over many options before settling on the flecked brown and classic grey tweeds, both pure wool and woven in the UK. Both give a versatile, modern take on the traditional flat cap that works in both town and country. Channel your inner Peaky Blinder.
