Often referred to as a traditional flat cap or ivy cap, this cap consists of one panel that runs from front to back. Though the single panel refers to the top half of the scally cap, it is important to notice a signature Boston Scally cap will have a slight narrower side panels; less floppy that is. The goal in designing this cap was to give more depth to the traditional flat cap look—something that looked less like a costume hat. The increased depth give this a lower profile look that is more form fitted. It will shape the face nicely and hug the top of your dome just right.
We can always pick our scally cap in a crowd just by the proprietary look we knew people were looking for.
Our ‘Original’ scally cap is our best seller to date. If you are a beginner or veteran to the scally cap world, we suggest starting with that.
The six panel scally cap has been around for quite some time, but we encountered the same issue with many other brands out there—something was missing on the fit. It needed to be improved. When we wear a scally cap we like to know that it is going to stay on our head, like a baseball cap. This was the “ah-ha” moment that helped design our signature 6 panel scally cap. We needed to give it more depth, just like we did with the single panel, slim down the sides and make the brim more substantial. Contrary to the single panel, the 6 panel scally cap has a rounder look. It will appear completely smooth and clean on the edges.
We are obviously very passionate about our scally caps, and what our customers and fans to feel the same way. Being able to make the cap your own is important. By adjusting the brim and making it more substantial, it gives the ability to give the cap a completely different look depending on who is wearing it. Do you like a more curved look? A flatter brim? The option is yours.
The eight panel scally cap has recently gained popularity because of the hit series “Peaky Blinders” and rightfully so. Not only are those dudes badass, but they look badass in their 8 panel scally caps. The question that arose was “Will we look like they do?”
As much as one would like to be able to pull off the old school, floppy 8 panel cap, it conveys more of a custom look. Very cool-yes---but for everyday wear it needed adjustments.
For years, we worked on developing an eight panel scally cap that looked just right. We had dozens and dozens of prototypes over the years, but they were never quite right. They were either too floppy, too small, too big—you name it.
Finally, we got it right. We were able to “Boston Scally-ize” the Peaky Blinders-style 8-panel cap. We gave it our signature form fit with a narrower look. It has a similar look and feel as the 6 panel, but with a slightly larger profile to give it an old-school look with a modern feel.
