Popular Caps

Ivy caps

Ivy ones are known by other names, including golf, driver, flat and Jeff caps. The cap was introduced into the market during the 16th Century. In order to promote the consumption of wool and general trade, an act was passed in 1571 in England requiring every male above the age of 6 years, save for those in the ruling class, to wear a woolen flat cap during the holidays and Sundays. Although the act was repealed, the ivy cap had become fully entrenched in the English culture. As a result, by the 19th century, most men in the working class wore ivy caps. Today, the caps come in different shapes and materials.
