The Newsboy: Cheeky, Vintage, Classy
The newsboy cap’s style originated in the Industrial Revolution, at the end of the 19th century, in Europe. It was mostly worn by the working class for its comfort and affordability. It was also worn by gentlemen as a sports hat. During the last 150 years, it took many shapes and forms depending on local fashions.
The Kingston KG is a winter newsboy cap with a volume typical of the Londonian styles of the early 20th century. One could easily see the resemblance with the ones adorned by certain razor sharp gangsters well known to today’s public!
Offered in a wool and Gore-Tex fabric and fitted with foldable earmuffs, this cap is perfect for the cold, rain and snow. Style wise, the Kingston KG is unisex, chic yet casual and will effortlessly blend into any fall and winter outfit. Give yourself a touch of youthful cheek this winter!
This Göttmann cap features an 8-panel newsboy crown that gives it a soft volume that accentuates its elegant vintage looks. To add to the insulating properties of its outer shell fabric, the Kingston KG Cap features a 100% cotton (70% recycled) flannel lining for maximum comfort. It also presents a 2” (5,08 cm) for better UV protection to the head and face, as well as a 1” (2,54 cm) depth band for increased comfort and fit.
