The mechanics cap is a symbol of the Industrial Age of the early 20th century. Keeping true to tradition, this cap is handcrafted using top-notch materials that would have been found on turn of the century headwear. The front has no stiffener and the cap is made with a short flexible visor, and the hat itself is made with 100% brushed cotton canvas and a cotton sweatband. Prefer another fabric or different type of sweatband? Just ask, we love custom orders.

Back in 1989, living in a small 1800's schoolhouse in rural upstate New York, out side the small town of Cooperstown, I found my passion for caps. Working with several companies as a sub contractor, I produced many caps without my label on them.
Feeling a little left out of the cap spotlight,I threw caution to the wind and ventured out on my own. First, step was renting a tiny one car garage in downtown Cooperstown, behind the bakery, at the one street light in town. Then I moved my machines and fabric in and put a hand made sign up "HAND MADE CAPS $22".
The price has changed but the quality has only gotten better! Now handmade in Pennsylvania.
