Authentic Irish Flat Caps from Ireland
Irish flat caps known also as paddy caps, gatsby caps, scally caps or simply Irish caps have been worn for generations by both men and women, young and old. A flat cap is a hat with a curved design and a small, stiff brim at the front. It originated in Northern England and has various names in different regions: it's called a "paddy cap" in Ireland, a "bunnet" in Scotland, a "Dai cap" in Wales, and in the United States, it's referred to as an "English cap," "scally cap," or simply a "flat cap." They’re a staple hat that never goes out of style and can be worn dressed up or dressed down. Many of our classic men's Irish flat caps are made out of tweed fabric woven into beautiful patterns like herringbone and woven speckled designs. Thanks to tweed being highly resistant to wind and water they make great caps in any weather- warm or cold. You can be sure your head will be kept warm and dry if you happen to get caught in the rain or snow. Flat Irish caps are truly one of the most popular men's Irish cap styles to wear for a reason and are some of the easiest caps to dress up or dress down. The Peaky Blinders series has recently brought them into the spotlight and become a global phenomenon. Over the past century, flat caps have undergone significant evolution, resulting in numerous styles and designs such as Kerry caps, touring caps, and driving caps- all keeping the legacy and flat cap history alive. While historically seen as men's headwear, this style now offers a fantastic array of choices for women too.
Traditional Irish newsboy caps for men and women
We carry a large selection of newsboy caps for men and women. Our ‘newsboy’ caps have distinctive characteristics that make them easily identifiable and one of a kind. These caps have been worn since the late 19th century and are most associated today with the newsboys and the time. Today the style of the ‘newsboy’ hat has been fully embraced as a fashionable cap that adds a special touch to any look. There’s no other cap like them with their distinctive characteristics- the voluminous body and the eight-panel design. Most of our eight-panel Irish caps are expertly pleated from a single piece of Irish tweed to create the majority of their structure. They come in a lovely herringbone or speckled pattern with plenty of colors for you to choose from. Some of our eight-panel hats are patchwork hats crafted together by different pieces of fabric creating a fun and interesting look. Newsboy caps styles for women are designed with leather rosettes for an extra dash of style and femininity. In addition, we carry a diverse range of women's Irish flapper hats, representing another stylish option akin to newsboy caps for women. These hats draw inspiration from the fashion of the 1920s and serve as an excellent choice option for those seeking a vintage and elegant appearance.
Irish Skipper Flat Caps
Another great cap in our collection is our skipper cap or mariner’s cap. Our wool tweed skipper hats will keep you warm and dry during the chilly seasons. Its woven material is great at blocking out wind and repelling water of all kinds. Its flat top and small brim make for a unique design that looks great dressed up or dressed down. It was once strictly worn only in maritime settings but eventually became a popular item among the public. Today they pair great with an Aran cardigan or sweater for a day out on the town.
