Ivy Flat Caps
Ivy flat caps are favorite good ol’ dad caps. The ivy style cap has a non-sectioned crown that tapers toward the bill giving it a distinctive flat profile. These caps adjust for a perfect fit for several head sizes.
Popularized by the working man, the flat cap crossed over to become a leisure hat for golfers, drivers, and the college crowd. It fills the gap between a ball cap and a fedora. Today, people get nostalgiac when they think about how it really was a favorite cap for their dad and grandpas. Flat caps have followed the trend to becoming a unisex cap with its appeal to guys and gals alike. Still, you either like it or you don’t. There is no middle ground when it comes to its classic style.
Good fully lined caps with a buckled slider on the back that can be adjusted to comfortably fit most heads. Reduces worries about loosing your cap to the wind, simply snug it down a bit more.

Stopped for an Ivy Flat Cap
He stopped when he saw the ivy flat caps at the Farmers Market and had to see which of the two would work best for him. He liked a homespun check and the green plaid. He said he has taken a look at these kind of hats at different places over the years and was very pleased to see me there with mine. It was the green one he went with and was very pleased to let me snap a quick picture.
Where’d You Get That Hat?
It was the black and gray big check one in flannel that was a real draw for the teen. He came to the KCMO Farmers Market that day with his mom and brother and they were impressed at how the cap was perfect on him. They shared that they had a sister and another brother at home and would give it more thought on something for at least him. Off they went.
A bit later they returned with good news about how he was getting lots of, “Where’d you get that hat?” as he walked through the market. He showed them my business card and told them to stop by and check them out. The other brother found a plaid cap he wanted liked, too, and they got one for the brother who stayed home that day. The plaid one he got is pictured to the right.
At the Pella Tulip Market, he was compelled to check out the flat caps. He was pleased to learn that there were not going to be lots of people with hats like these because they are only made in a very limited quantity by me. After trying on the gold and black one, he declared it would be good for church and other formal occasions, but not as practical for everyday wear. With the wearability and sturdiness of corduroy in mind, he selected the blue and black flowered cap which has a very Renaissance look to it.
Later that evening, he shared, “Everything was great Becky was great she took my picture…i will buy more caps from her.” as well as, “I was happy with my purchase.”
Seasons Change and So Do Flat Caps
Sunny Day Shade
The first guy to buy the blue and white colored, homespun flat cap came to the show and had gotten off without any of his six or seven other flat caps. He had thinning hair and the sun beating down made it a perfect day for the nice, new one.

Gotta Go Purple
She saw the flat caps at the Lawrence show, but had just arrived so she still needed to check things out. It was the purple brocade one that brought her back. She looked outstanding in it and was pleased to pose for the picture. It suited her nicely and even matched the purple in her hair.
Later, it was the flat caps that caught his eye. He really liked to looks of the brown one and tried it on. He turned to get an opinion and she said it made him look like he was going to a coffee shop. She really liked it on him.
They both looked good in their new headwear. Check out the hair bag do rags like she got by pressing here.
He studied the flat caps and she really liked they way they looked on him, but he really could not go for any of them. She explained that he had a favorite hat that he has used for every cruise they have gone on and it is really worn out. The issue? It was white and there were no white flat caps on the rack.
When he learned that I designed and made all the headwear, he had to give it more thought. He shared they really like to go on cruises and he had looked forever to find another white hat. Thus, Kevin got the first, white, flat cap.
