Small Batch - Vintage Twill Padre Cap

i came across this vintage cotton twill about 7 years ago in a small town in georgia. i don't know the story behind it, but it had a beautifully soft, worn-in texture, and i figured i would find some use for it. 3 years later, in a fit of restlessness, i decided it was too white and set about staining it with coffee grounds. i loved the resulting variegated color, but still had no idea what to do with it. fast-forward another 4 years, and i figured out exactly what to do with it...

a low-crown ball cap with an exposed leather peak, suede-side up, trimmed in vintage cotton. matching leather strap in back, with cam buckle for size adjustment. sized medium, which best fits heads of size 7 - 7 5/8.

there was just barely enough material for 5 caps.

shell: cotton twill

The Padre is a low-crown ball cap with an adjustable back. Each cap is individually handcrafted with strong attention to detail.


If your cap becomes soiled, I recommend hand-washing in cool water with mild soap. Air dry. Do not put your cap in the dryer. The intense heat may shrink the cap and dry out the leather in the peak.

fit + sizing

To properly determine your cap size, measure the circumference of your head at the widest part, or where your caps generally sit, using a soft measuring tape or string and ruler. Always measure a few times to determine the maximum measurement. See the chart to the left to determine your size. (Measurements are all +/- 1/8")

I recommend buying a cap that will fit snug (not tight) upon the first wear. With just a little bit of time, the cap will shape and mold to your head, providing the perfect, comfortable fit.

*Everyone wears his or her cap differently and every manufacturer has different size specifications. I developed my size chart based on inch measurement with 3/8" increments between sizes.
