[Cap Style:]
5 panel cap, 6 panel cap, 8 panel cap, boxcap (pillbox), 8 panel baggy cap, 8 panel pageboy (flatter top )

[Cap Size:]
Any cap size is available. If your size is unknown, a measurement around the head where the cap band normally lies is sufficient. *keep a fingertip under the tape so it's not too tight! Shallow or deep cut options should be specified as most caps are vintage cut, which ride above the ears and close to the head, not the 'billboard' front, high top caps that some modern caps have.

[Visor size:]
1910's (2" narrow), 1920's (2" wide), 1930's (2.25"), 1940's (3") or modern 2.5" stiff visor, which can be worn flat or curved.

[Fabric:]
Wool flannel, cotton twill, plaids, prints and more! We can also use your fabric.

[**Logo:]
Hand cut felt stitched logo of your choice. Any font letter, number or design can be put on your cap. Due to the nature of hand-cutting felt, intricate logos would be embroidered. Custom art template setup charge may apply.

[Cap Details:]
Eyelets, topstitching, button and visor color can be matching or contrasting to the cap color.

For questions, order inquiries, or rush requests, please feel free to contact us at anytime.

**PLEASE NOTE: We are not a MLB, NFL, or other professional team licensed company. We are a small hand crafted custom cap shop. Any logo request must not violate these policies. If you request a specific team logo, you must have permission for its use.

Looking forward to being your favorite cap maker!

Left panel is noticeably larger than the right. Just looks silly. Not stoked after throwing down 40 bucks. The material's nice...

This is simply a Great ball cap and just what we discussed for a custom order. Excellent craftsmanship, design, and very fine natural materials. I love the leather sweatband and the fit is perfect and very comfortable - I don't want to take it off. Wonderful "old school quality" in a custom made-just-for-you cap. I'm really looking forward to my next one!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

You can choose your size (if known) from the drop-down menu for each cap. From 6 1/2 to 8 1/2, we have your head covered!

If you do not know your cap size, you can simply measure your head where the cap band normally lies. (keep a finger tip under the tape so the cap isn't too tight!) Divide that measurement by 3.14 (pi) and your exact size will be the result!

We do make half sizes so feel free to contact me regarding your order if your cap size is say a 7 3/8+ or -.

If you have the need for a deeper cut cap, or a more shallow cut cap, submit your ear to ear measurement.

**Finally you found a place to make a cap to fit YOUR head. Like a fingerprint, no two heads are alike!

Wholesale availability

As each cap is hand crafted in our small shop in south central Pennsylvania, We can not offer the normal wholesale discount that larger companies and imports can offer. What we can offer is the highest quality material and workmanship available in the custom made cap market.
What we are able to do is discount your order for 1 dozen, 2 dozen, etc.
Contact us for more detailed quotes. We also offer a dual labeling program, where your own brand label can be stitched in along with our brand label.
No private label caps (not having our logo inside) offered.

Do you make caps from customers material?

Yes! As long as the material in a normal cap material such as woven wool, cotton, linen, etc. The only leather we can use is very thin garment weight. No hair on leather either!
We have had customers send us their favorite shirt that may have passed the age of being worn out in public. They have it up-cycled into a custom made cap! So if you have that special piece of clothing that you hate to throw away or donate, have it made into a custom cap or two!

Custom and personalized orders

Back in 1989, living in a small 1800's schoolhouse in rural upstate New York, out side the small town of Cooperstown, I found my passion for caps. Working with several companies as a sub contractor, I produced many caps without my label on them.
Feeling a little left out of the cap spotlight,I threw caution to the wind and ventured out on my own. First, step was renting a tiny one car garage in downtown Cooperstown, behind the bakery, at the one street light in town. Then I moved my machines and fabric in and put a hand made sign up "HAND MADE CAPS $22".

The price has changed but the quality has only gotten better! Now handmade in Pennsylvania.
