We love a good ball cap and our friends at Knickerbocker make a pretty good one at their factory in Queens, New York. We sent them some stuff we had lying around the office - two colors of 100% cotton water repellent fabric woven in Italy by Olmetex SPA and a bunch 100% cashmere fabric and said, "have at it." What they came up with is pretty special: the Knickerbocker Six Panel lined in cashmere with a veg tan leather strap that will patina and darken with age. We call this hat the Knickerbocker Six Pack.
There are two colorways, navy and khaki with different cashmere lining fabrics in each
Khaki with red/white/blue houndstooth cashmere lining and white trim
Navy with red/white/blue houndstooth cashmere lining and white trim
Navy with solid red cashmere lining and white trim
Navy with charcoal herringbone lining and black trim
This cap is made at Knickerbocker MFG in Queens, New York. Knickerbocker was started in 2013 when three friends from Brooklyn (Andrew, Kyle, and Dan) purchased a sixty-year-old hat factory from long time hat maker Steven Watman. Knickerbocker is the exciting collision of the old school tradition and new school design - a traditional hat factory led by owners who themselves help define the style we think of today as contemporary.
