The Tom Smarte x JP Cooper 204 Blue Check Newsboy Cap. A design collaboration between Tom Smarte and musician JP Cooper.
JP's love of headwear has been evident throughout his career and when his creative juices drew him to the world of fashion design, a partnership with Tom Smarte was a natural fit. During the design process, JP was very specific in his desire to create a newsboy cap with an oversized crown and a deeper back, which was also the direction we were going in. The result is our new 204 shape.
The mid blue check wool with a contrast red windowpane is the basis of this adapted traditional shaped 8 piece 100% wool cap. It has a slightly curved peak, deeper crown and back, with a button on top. The oversized crown is stitched down on the peak.
This hat is made from 100% Holland & Sherry worsted wool with a satin lining and soft interlining.
