Product Details:

The Linen Alfie Cap from Failsworth is a classic fully body 'peaky blinders' design made of 100% Irish linen. Failsworth aims for the highest quality of products, thus their decision to use Irish linen when creating this piece. It is a rightfully famous fabric due to its rich touch, breathability, and comfort. Not only is this flat cap stylish but also great for exploring outside as it is UPF40+ and showerproof.

In 1903, from their humble Manchester premises, they turned out a mere 25-dozen hats per week. Growing steadily, by the 1940’s they were making 5,000-dozen hats per week, even finding time to contribute towards the war effort by hand-crafting flying helmets for the RAF and ‘special equipment’ for commando frogmen.

When demand for their fur-felt hats began to dwindle in the 1950s, they could ‘see the writing on the wall’ and already had a viable alternative ready when the market collapsed altogether.

Their fabric variants soon took off, winning favour both with the avant-garde and ‘man in the street’ alike.

Today they are still concentrating on tomorrow, forever introducing new twists on ever-popular models, introducing next-generation fabrics, textures, and colours, always inventing, always progressing.
