M.T.O Brawler - 8001

classic 6-panel newsboy in 10oz waxed canvas. charcoal.

waxed cotton is a unique and fascinating material. as the name suggests, it is a 100% cotton fabric impregnated with a natural wax, creating a weather resistant finish. the resulting material keeps out the wet and the cold but is still breathable. as the wax fades and shifts, a natural patina occurs, giving the material a beautiful look, not unlike leather. over time, the cap will require a reapplication of wax to maintain its weather-resistant properties. this wax will be available in the near future through our website.

The Brawler is a six panel newsboy cap featuring a 1 1/2" band that gives the crown an aggressive forward tilt. Looks great on both men and women. The leather brim stiffener provides a natural curve that adapts to the handling habits of the wearer yet will not crease or dry out. Each cap is individually handcrafted with strong attention to detail.


If your waxed Brawler becomes soiled, rinse with cool water or brush off with stiff-bristled brush. Do not launder. Do not use harsh soap, as it will remove the waxed finish. Should your waxed Slugger become dry, refinish with Martexin Original Wax.

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. See the chart below 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.
