From DOUBLE DIAMOND and originating in 19th-century Britain and Ireland, the NEWSBOY CAP, known also as Baker Boy, became popular among working-class boys on newspaper ‘rounds’. Flat caps were the original uniform of the newsboy and became a staple piece of workwear on the railway and for factory workers. Since then, the adoption of the newsboy cap as an accessory has endured among sportsman, drivers and the gentry.

This elegant double-woven cotton-linen moleskin fabric on this example was milled to THE REAL McCOY’S era-accurate specifications in Japan. The linen moleskin cloth is lightweight, yet the double weaves provides a thick and breathable shell, finished with a characterful surface sheen.

The NEWSBOY CAP features meticulously reproduced details, including a traditional 8-Panel round crown design, flat visor, lined band and all cotton stitching.
