The Slim Cap

Sleek and close-fitting, the Slim Cap stays on in the breeze, fits under a helmet, and accentuates your natural profile. We designed it to evoke the racing caps of the Classic era, but updated its look and upgraded the material. Made of 100% wool gabardine, with a felt brim stiffener, it can fold into your pocket, purse, or bag when you go inside, and can be hand-washed in cold water.

Of course you can flip up the brim!

One size fits Small, Medium, or Medium-Large (up to US hat size 7⅛). Persons with more capacious skulls are referred to the James Black Hat. Formerly $29.00; now on sale for $10.00. No returns at this price.

Charcoal, Olive, or Brown Heather [more]
Clearance: $10.00!

Materials & Construction
Made in Los Angeles in a fair-wage factory from 100% wool gabardine.

Care & Cleaning
You can dry-clean or handwash these hats without qualm. Not only that, you can stuff them into pocket, purse, messenger bag, pannier, whatever; they roll right up and return to their proper shape when you need them again. They fit under a helmet as well.

Wool gabardine is the ultimate breathable wicking miracle fabric, strong yet soft, and non-itchy for most people. And with modern sheep-grazing methods being much more conscientious than those of the past, wool is environmentally-friendly: sheep make it for you out of grass!

Fit & Alteration
Fits Small, Medum or Medium-Large heads (up to US size 7⅛). Sizing is fairly simple, but here's a chart to help you choose:

XLOver 7½Over 7½Over 60

If you don't know your hat size, put a cloth measuring tape around your head just over your ears and eyebrows and read the number. If your tape is metric, the number of centimetres around your head is your size; if you tape is Imperial (inches), divide the number by 3.14 for your US hat size. For example: 22" around equals a US size 7.
