Long favored by commercial and private fishermen along the harsh west Atlantic coast of Ireland, the Skipper Cap is a workhorse and a style statement. First introduced by Hanna Hats in the 1960s, it has been worn by working men and women ever since as an alternative to the classic Irish flat cap. The skipper cap features a front brim and flat peak and a 1.5” band that keeps it upright, providing just enough air circulation inside for warmth and comfort.
The interior is taffeta lined while the 100% wool Irish Tweed exterior can stand up to any weather conditions with its dense weave. This grey salt and pepper weave evokes the stone walls of Ireland and a landscape dotted with ancient castles. Hanna Hats was founded in County Donegal in 1924 and has remained family owned and operated ever since. They use only the finest quality Irish tweeds to ensure maximum durability and comfort and continue to make each and every hat by hand.
