Here at Shamrock Gift, we’re proud to stock a multitude of Irish fashion staples, and when it comes to the Irish flat cap, we’re prouder than proud! This essential element of any Ireland-inspired wardrobe has been warming heads and hearts alike for as long as anyone can remember, and with good reason: it’s been around since the 14th century!

Irish Flat Caps History

This beloved headgear piece is known for its rounded look and small stiff brim that’s incorporated in a uniquely discreet fashion. In olden times, it acted as a marker of the working class. This was because of one particular incident which occurred in 1571: in an effort to encourage domestic wool consumption, Queen Elizabeth declared that all non-noble men aged six and over had to wear a wool cap every Sunday. The alternative was to be fined a (for the time) massive three farthings per day. This law lasted less than 30 years -- but by the time it faded out, the flat cap had already become a go-to accessory for working class men. It wasn’t long before the trend caught on in Ireland, and stayed there permanently.

By the time the 1920s had rolled around, however, this headpiece had become more of a fashion statement than a practical cover against the elements while farming, and as such was favored by young men of all classes. As with all trends, however, it wasn’t to last, and in the 30s and 40s, the hats were mostly worn by men of an older generation. But it’s hard to keep a good cap down -- and nowadays, they’re back with a vintage flair that shows no sign of fading out any time soon! 

Irish Made Flat caps for any occasion 

Today, Irish flat caps are commonly referred to as “paddy caps” (for obvious reasons!) and are made in such a variance of styles that it’s easy to find one for any event. While most flat caps are made from the traditional fabrics of wool, tweed, or cotton, more unusual base materials include leather, linen, and corduroy. As with many of the caps we have on offer here, they are commonly lined on the inside for both warmth and comfort, the better to serve the needs of the wearer no matter what the time of the year!
