Art & Craft

When it came to expanding our range of caps, we looked to the past for inspiration, revisiting a classic pattern from the Bates’ archive and bringing it up to date for a new generation – here in our London workrooms. Our iconic Made In England cap was born.

Based on our ‘platypus’ shape from the 1920s, the distinctive style is a nod to the flat cap’s heyday. Each piece is considerately crafted with tradition in mind, from the delicately hand-finished peak and original ventilation holes to our signature satin lining and Petersham ribbon finish.

In rugged English and Harris tweeds not found anywhere else in our collection, along with Austrian loden and Scottish cashmere, the Made In England range is built around the finest warm and weather-resistant fibres – for hats with visual, tactile and lasting appeal.
