What is a flat cap?

This fashionable item of men's headwear is incredibly popular across the world. In terms of the visual appearance, a flat cap is a compact and rounded hat that features a hard brim over the forehead to shade your eyes from harsh sunlight. It sits close to your head to provide a tight yet comfortable fit for casual, everyday activities. Traditionally made from wool or tweed, flat caps (also known as diving caps, duffer caps, golf caps and even newsboy caps) can be snapped up in a huge range of materials including cotton, linen, corduroy, or even leather.

For additional comfort, you might find that the inside of more expensive and luxurious flat caps are lined with a comfortable fabric. This will prevent the itchy feeling of wool and tweed from irritating your head and add the finishing touch to the cap. Plus, this extra layer can also provide sought-after warmth for those cooler autumnal and winter months.

What was the original purpose of men's flat caps?

No matter your age or occupation, a flat cap is a must-have addition to anyone's closet of classic accessories. With the ability to be styled to complement all kinds of attire including casual, informal and formal attire, flat caps are the ultimate men's accessory. Also referred to as a 'driving cap', the wearing of flat caps was originally enforced by British law way back in 1571 when Parliament decreed non-noblemen and boys above the age of six should cover their heads with wool caps on Sundays and holidays. If anyone chose to disobey this law, they would receive a fine. Despite this unusual law being repealed after 26 years, the flat cap style had already been incorporated into British style and was here to stay.

Because of this history, flat caps are often associated with young boys and working men. However, they're now widely worn across all areas of society. Nowadays, the flat cap makes a stylish addition to most outfits and can be made out of a huge range of fabrics from sleek and premium leather to country-style tweed. The laid back, sporty style is ideal for keeping your outfit casual and cool while also keeping your head warm and your overall look sophisticated and smart.
