Flat caps have been a timeless accessory since the 1300s in northern England. Today, at Hatstore, we proudly showcase a range from renowned brands like Stetson, Kangol, Brixton, and more. Among them, Stetson's Brooklin and Texas models, as well as Kangol's 504 and 507, stand out as favorites. Brixton, though a newer brand, has made waves with their flagship Hooligan flat cap.
Masculine, versatile, and timeless—flat caps have long been the go-to headwear for gentlemen all over. Here we offer a vast collection of flat caps for men, drawing from classic brands and contemporary styles.
While the 1800s and 1900s marked the glory for flat caps in England and Ireland, their popularity soared in the United States, especially in areas with significant British and Irish settlements, like Boston. Distinct in their short brim, flat caps come in variations—the sleek duckbill and the voluminous newsboy. The former's name stems from its beak-like appearance, while the newsboy cap draws its name from young American newspaper vendors of the early 1900s.
Flat caps can also be seen in pop culture, donned by celebrities from AC/DC's Brian Johnson to Harry Styles. They're known by many names across cultures, from cabbie cap and golf cap to Irish cap and newsboy cap.
Recently, the style has surged in popularity, with icons like David Beckham, Guy Ritchie, and Sami Zayn adopting them. Undoubtedly, flat caps are more than just hats—they're a statement. Discover the perfect one for you at Hatstore, where we offer the latest trends as well as timeless classics.
