Mister Freedom Wool Casquettes

Dig these new 1920's - 1930's style Casquettes (read 8-panel or newsboy in America) by Mister Freedom! Here's the skinny:

 Original Mister Freedom® single panel pattern, typical of 1920′s-30′s French gents’ caps.
FABRIC: 100 year old New Old Stock (NOS) French fabrics. Variety of all wool patterns, weave and colours. Solid, tweeds, herringbone, houndstooth in very limited quantities. (See last photo for an idea of how the fabric rolls looked like when found.)
LINING: NOS 1930′s sturdy black rayon and/or moleskine, printed with Mister Freedom® original artwork.
* Leather head band
* Decorative crown strap, secured by 1900′s french NOS glass buttons
* Functionning snap up brim (United Carr snap).
* All hand made in MF® Los Angeles atelier, by happy skilled artisans, while listening to good music.
SIZE: The can of worms…Few random sizes available, from about 57 cm to 60cm.
We use only one pattern, and due to variation in fabric thickness, fluctuating seam allowance, the crown size also varies sligthly +/- a few milimeters. No two casquettes are exactly the same.
57cm is close to US hat size 7 1/8
60cm is close to US hat size 7 1/2
CARE: Professional Hat cleaner Dry Cleaning ONLY, if needed. Do NOT wash.
Designed by Mister Freedom® and made in California in a limited edition.
From +/- 57 cm to +/- 60cm
Retail: $ 199.95
