M.T.O Tweed - 1005

a rich English tweed with a rich history. given to me by a woman named Emily who inherited it from her grandparents. they bought it in England after the war with the intent of making a dress for her and a suit for him. well, the dress was made, but money became tight before the suit was commissioned. it never was made. Emily wanted it to go to someone who would make good use of it, and so she showed up at our studio one day in 2013. very proud to have this tweed.

a thicker tweed. medium weight. gorgeous flecks of yellow and red.

leather brim stiffener. velvety corduroy inner band.

The Thumper is a classic 8-panel newsboy cap with a round, somewhat floppy crown and no outer band. The front of the crown is stitched down to the brim. 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 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 brim.

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.
