Welcome to the world of quality caps!



GATSBY CAPS, NEWSBOY CAPS, APPLE CAPS, SPEEDSTER CAPS,  TEAM COLORS CAPS AND USED DENIM 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!

Custom Caps

If you have a custom cap in mind you can send me 1/2 yard of material. I charge my standard price, but you can get exactly what you want. In this example my long time customer and life coach Steve sent me a cashmere scarf that I used to make this fine looking cap.

Let me know that you intend to do this and I will ship the cap unlined with a lining enclosed. Your embroidery service should be able to install the lining for you. If you want a combination of colors not shown here contact me and I can add that color combo if available. You can also send me a patch as seen in some of the caps below.The maximum demension should be approximately 3".
