Knickerbocker MFG. Co.

With hair as puffy as mine, it’s difficult to find hats that fit properly and look good. When I discovered this 8 Quarter Cap on the Knickerbocker MFG Co. website, and saw that they carried it in an XL 7 3/4 size, I immediately ordered it. Given my past experiences, I tempered my excitement, but It actually ended up fitting perfectly!

Notable details that I really like are the moldable brim (which gives it a sportier look), the option to wear it snapped or unsnapped and the sheepskin leather sweatband. It’s not your ordinary newsboy cap. Knickerbocker really put a lot into designing this one and it shows.

A cap like this is the icing on the cake when paired with workwear and classic basics. For shoes, you can either go with a beat up pair of Chuck Taylor, or freshly polished dress shoes. Either way, you’re going to be earning mad respect for rocking this timeless look.
