The Thumper is a classic 8-panel newsboy cap with a round, somewhat full crown and no outer band. The front of the crown is stitched down to the peak. The leather peak 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 leather Thumper becomes soiled, I recommend delicately cleaning with leather cleaner. Air dry. Do not put your cap in a clothes dryer with the heat on, as it 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.
