This is the hat that inspired the Brass Bobbin. As the 19th century came to a close, soft caps were worn by in increasing number of men. Starting out as a hat for leisure and country wear, they came to be classless, and worn by both rich and poor. The driving cap acquired its name as the style was popular with the early drivers of the automobile. It is also known as a flat cap and an ivy cap. Our version is based on an extant and worn out hat, as well as using photo documentation. Wear it everyday, or with that special ensemble. Fabric options include organic cotton twill and wool tweed, with an optional leather visor. Sizes: s= 21 1/2, m= 22 1/2, l= 23 1/2, xl = 24 1/2.
