Fox Tweed Cap With Snap Brim In Glen check with Blue and Gold Deco


Here at the Merchant Fox, we aim to please so when you said you would love to see our Fox caps back in stock, we set the wheels in motion and are now pleased to introduce our range of Fox Tweed Caps.

Added to the range is our glen check with blue and gold deco, this cap boasts a slightly larger circumference with stiff snap brim. 

This style of cap can be traced back to the 14th Century in northern England at this time it was more than likely called a bonnet which by the 1700's was replaced with the term cap. Interestingly, in the 16th century, the British Parliament wanted to stimulate wool consumption, so they mandated that all non-noble men must wear a wool hat on Sundays and holidays, or face a fine. This essentially forced most of the men in the country to buy hats, and even though the law didn’t last for very long, the hat had become irrevocably part of the uniform of the working man. Proving popular again in the 20th century the Cap is here to stay, making itself a firm favourite amongst our loyal customers.

We have included some of our quintessential Fox designs like our classic prince of Wales, and Glen checks with vibrant deco’s alongside traditional Twill and Herringbone.

Each cap is handmade in Yorkshire by one of last remaining hatters left in Britain. Every cap is moulded onto shaped 'lasts' using age-old techniques that are becoming rare in the UK.

The pure wool check flannel used for these caps is woven by Fox Brothers & Co Ltd. Established in 1772, Fox has a rich history of producing fine woollen and worsted cloths in Somerset and some of the people involved in the weaving of this extraordinary cloth are the fourth generation of their family to work for Fox Brothers.
