All caps are made bespoke to YOUR head size
Advantages of the capalog being a small batch slow fashion brand AND a former milliner being in charge are that you can get a cap that fits PERFECTLY.
Head-sizing is super simple and just involves one measurement. That's all that is needed from you in order to make a cap to your size. Also because the caps are made in small batches, then there's time to make everything to different sizes.
All the caps are now available to order from sizes XS-4XL, that's 10 different sizes in total, not small medium & large here. That just isn't very inclusive, or realistic and well it's annoying when something doesn't quite fit right. So that's also why there's all the sizes in between too. Get your cap to fit snugly and just right! As milliners we get really geeky about this stuff too, if you can make it bespoke AND affordably then why not?

SLOW FASHION & CAPS
A BLOG POST ON WHERE THE CAPALOG STANDS:
Slow fashion is something that is discussed more and more these days and chances are if you're here you've noticed me talk about it too. It is definitely something that is integral to how the cap batches here are made and a big part of how I approach every decision in relation to production.
However it's often hard to tell exactly where a company stands on it, even if they talk about it. But I wanna address that, so anyone who is curious can know a bit more for sure how it factors in and how slow fashion literally is considered re caps.
Slow fashion to the capalog means the products are designed to be purchases that last and kept, the fabric is sourced responsibly and that caps are sewn and made with care and attention to the craft... but without making you as a customer wait too long to get it!
THE PIECES OF A FISHERMAN CAP
How many components go into a cap? Part of the capalog's obsession is figuring out the jigsaw of how many pieces go into each cap, the length and shape & size of each one and how all the certain shapes change the final outcome.
This one for example is a fisherman's cap, it's made from an oval at the top, two slightly arched strips create the sides, a long thin piece makes the headband and then you've got the peak.
The arched strips for sides are cut to a very exact shape and size. The bottom length creates the headsize and the top length creates the volume of the crown.
(And no, it's not superimposed onto the photo! :P It's really carefully balanced.. like really frigging carefully with weight bags & swearing I mean stuffing..)
