19th Century Style Wheel Cap or "Mechanic's Cap"

(4 reviews) Write a Review
Navy cap being worn

Introducing our reproduction of the common style cap seen in the mid-19th century. This cap fits higher on the head and has a stiff lower section that keeps its form when worn.

Our cap is made of navy blue wool broadcloth, and features a leather sweatband, red quilted cotton lining and leather brim, ensuring that it is both durable and comfortable to wear. It is a superb cap for a great price!

Available in sizes 7 1/8, 7 1/4, 7 3/8, 7 1/2, and 7 5/8, you can be sure that you will find the perfect fit. We do our best to maintain a stock of these caps but if your size is not in stock, please be prepared for a wait of approximately 4-6 weeks for your order to be completed.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of history. Add this cap to your cart today and experience the past in a more accurate and authentic way.

    The cap is faithful to original examples. The quality of material and structure is strong. The red lining is beautiful and well made as well.
