The History of Traditional Cricket Caps
As far as records are concerned, the first traditional cap seen being worn in photographs was at some point in the 18th Century. Over the years, it’s use has become far more prevalent, particularly within Australia and their infamous ‘baggy green’.
Known for it’s distinct style, the baggy cap does exactly what it says on the tin. It fits on the head with a more ‘baggy’ look coupled with a distinctive peak that is notably different in style to typical baseball cap designs.
What’s the difference between a Baggy Cap and English Traditional Cap?
The traditional English cap includes a much more fitted design coupled with less excess material and a slightly longer peak for sports people to wear.
Why we choose tradition?
At Gentlemen & Players, we believe that a wool cricket cap, in either style, can be the perfect way to represent your club. That’s why we work so hard with our customers to get a bespoke finish that will give them the best cap to represent them and their club, school or country.
For us, the devil is in the detail. We will customise caps from the colour, to extra embellishment, to initials, numbers, or even a fully personalised inner crown.
We want your cap to be exactly that! Your very own with all the hidden meaning, memories, history and culture that comes with it.
