Flat Caps and Whippets

The Baker Boy cap is similar in style to the flat cap which is synonomous with the northern working classes. It has the same overall shape and stiff peak as a flat cap but the body is rounder, fuller and is usually made of eight panels (pieces) with a button on the top and often with a button attaching the front to the peak. Mollie Sash caps are handmade in Yorkshire using traditional techniques. Although the woollen cloth is authentic I’ve given it a contemporary twist by hand screen printing it. Nowadays caps are more likely to be seen on the catwalk as they epitomize the “British Look” which has become so fashionable. Hopefully Mollie Sash hats will help to dispel the Flatcap and Whippets image that still seems to haunt the North.
