Bates Hats Gatsby Cap - Magee Donegal Herringbone Tweed - Anthracite
The Bates Gatsby Cap is a fitted, classic 8-panel button crowned cap constructed out of a Magee® 1866 Donegal Tweed milled in Ireland from 100% British Virgin Wool. Known for its thick and durable yarns with a handwoven appearance, Magee has been producing Donegal woolen using traditional weaving techniques that provide a pronounced texture in a variable palette, resulting in a fabric ideal for dissipating the damp and cold weather of the countryside that's also durable in workwear conditions. This natural wool made with old world methods and outstanding comfort comes in a charcoal and black herringbone twill weave peppered with accents of medium grey and natural flecks to yield amazing character and depth. 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. With modern iterations steeped in English heritage, Bates represents the best of styling, proportion, fabric, and fit for the Original Gentleman.
