Bates Hats Gatsby Cap - Loden Wool - Charcoal
The Bates Gatsby Cap is a fitted, classic 8-panel button crowned cap constructed out of a UK milled plain weave original Tyrolean Alpine Loden Wool designed for the outdoors in a versatile and classic Charcoal. Loden wool is famous for its past usage by workers in the Alpine region of Europe for protection against extreme weather conditions. This fabric is a warm, luxurious, and natural wool that combines that old world tradition with outstanding comfort. The famous Gatsby Cap, also known as the Baker Boy or News Boy Cap, is inspired by turn of the century casual caps worn in both industrial work and leisure activities. The Gatsby has milder proportions while retaining the drape of the originals, allowing for a practical and historic aesthetic. Bates is known for using the finest weather-resistant woolens designed for premium hats, which come fully lined with custom satin acetate and a satin twill interior banding. Made in Belgium with English heritage in a modern iteration, Bates represents the best of styling, proportion, fabric, and fit for the Original Gentleman.
