From the very early days of HBBC, we've envisioned a proper vintage cap made to original specs. Sadly, shortly after starting HBBC, we learned that Cooperstown Ball Cap, the benchmark standard, had closed its doors, effectively putting a stop to any dreams of partnership. We're now beyond excited to have found one of the hat makers from that long-gone and long-loved shop in the hills of Cooperstown. It is a pleasure to introduce our same-as-it-was short brimmed cap. Fitted, 100% wool with a soft leather sweatband. Also available in Grey/Crimson.
Rub some dirt on it and walk it off.
Because these are 100% wool, soft crown caps, break-in is incredibly simple. For the fastest and truest fit, simply run your cap under warm (not hot!) tap water. Do not use detergent. Remove most of the water (90% or so) with a towel and shape the cap and the brim on your head. While wet, the brim will feel very soft and floppy, don't worry, it will firm up once it is dry. The longer you allow the cap to dry on your head, the better your results will be. After drying you can stretch the wool or shape and soften your brim as you see fit. You are now ready to take on the world.
