Tweed eight-piece cap is a great accessory that is popular for over hundred of years. This hat can be worn by both men and women. The accessory can complement different styles and personalize your outfit.
A recognizable image of eight-piece cap appeared in the late nineteenth century. An upper part made of eight pieces, a thick and slightly curved visor and a button on the top: these hats were a cross between the classic cap and the beret. In the twenties of the previous century, the eight-piece cap has gained popularity and appeared in the wardrobe of many people.
In addition to the Eight-piece, the cap received different names. For example, Newsboy cap and Gatsby cap, named after the hero of Francis Scott Fitzgerald’s novel the Great Gatsby. More precisely, it happened because of the 1974 adaptation of the novel: Gatsby was wearing that cap.
