The Albert carries the most volume on top and has a stud button that can be raised up and jigged sideways – or can be buttoned down for a more shaded look. Immortalised by a hell-raising Marlon Brando in The Wild One on his Triumph motorcycle and worn with a Perfecto leather jacket; the look is eternal.
The Jacob heritage cut has a hand-sewn peak. Steve McQueen in Man on the Edge wore his in black leather with a roll neck knit. His style conjures images of flight in a light aircraft in the classic heist movie The Thomas Crown Affair – and of tearing up beaches at high speed in a dune buggy with Faye Dunaway.
Worn timelessly by leading men and ingenues alike – think Jane Birkin and Lou Doillon, mother and daughter – decades apart – the Bakerboy cap signs off a look with flair and attitude.
The Theo is a classic Newsboy-Gatsby style cap and the younger brother of the Jacob. More fitted around the head, Theo’s lines are sleek and often carry contrast leather peaks. The peak is fitted with a stud button and can be worn raised or buttoned down to suit your mood. As worn by David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Gwen Stefani and George Clooney, this is a go-to style for contemporary heroes.
Mariner caps are as eternal as the sea and suit all generations of boys and girls, parents and grandparents. With a sturdy headband and a raised front, the structured peak is complemented by a central band in accent colours and trims. Celebrated by icons John Lennon, Madonna, and Elvis Presley alike, this is the one for people who don’t wear hats… yet.
