Flat caps are known by many names including ivy caps, scally caps, dai caps, and driver caps. They are fabricated from a soft flexible cloth that sits flat on the crown of the head with a ridged bill in front. The most common fabrics used are wool, tweed, and cotton. Other options available include linen and leather. Some are accented with a single button at the top of the crown.
Flat caps have been a popular style since the 1920’s. Today these caps have seen a revival in popularity. They are an excellent alternative to the baseball cap, when you need to spruce up your look a little. Many celebrities, such as Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake and George Clooney, have been spotted sport the look.
