Welcome to the world of quality caps!

It is commonly called a Gatsby cap. If you're from the East coast, back in the day you might have called it an Apple cap.Wherever you've been it's a newsboy cap. For those of you in the know, a Townie told me that my caps are so close to an authentic Southie that any Teamster would be proud to wear one. I can make you a wool cap, a linen cap, or a denim cap.I first made the Speedster cap in 1972. America! I am here to free you from the tyranny of the baseball cap. If you are driving an antique car you need my cap, not a ball cap. Buy yourself a cap that has stood the test of time, but doesn't look like every other head in the crowd. If you are a Packers fan or support the Bulldogs or the Mariposa Grizzlies show your team colors in a B! Wear Cap. And if you are that special customer who has a custom cap in mind, email me and we'll talk about it.

I am the Hat Man. I am B! Wear Cap Co.

I design and make all of the hats that I offer for sale. This assures you of a quality product made of the finest fabrics with features and style that are not available in mass produced hats and caps.

I place a wire in the bill of each cap so that it can be shaped in whatever manner you prefer. They are also cut with an extra bit of fabric so that you can drape them as you please. While the weight of the fabric may somewhat affect the appearance of the cap, all of the Gatsbys are cut from the same pattern. If you look at cap # 10, #11, and #12 you will get an idea of how the same cap can be worn in a number of different ways. All of the caps have eight sections on top.

If you are interested in freedom and style, my freedom, your style, follow the instructions and you will soon be wearing a:

B! Wear cap!

I am the Hat Man!
