A man who likes to wear a smart flat cap needs a lighter version for summer to keep him cool—and here we have the Rolls-Royce of caps, the Balmoral by Christys’ & Co, in a new pure linen or silk-and-camel that is ultra-cool. Both these caps will look just the thing as part of your essential summer kit for game fairs and summer shows, holidays, weekend breaks and sporting trips, for town and country alike, and a cap is so much easier to carry with you than a Panama hat.
You really cannot do better than a cap from Christys’. This, the world’s oldest milliner, was set up by Miller Christy in 1773 and has been making fine headgear ever since. Their new caps for summer are in smart silk-and-camel herringbone, and beautifully made by hand in Oxfordshire.
They are strokably soft and comfortable to wear, cut to sit low and securely at the back, with a firm peak to shade the eyes and a petersham band to keep them in place. Fully lined in satin and with the famous Christy’s London label inside, they come in four sizes: S (UK 6 3/4 or 55cm), M (UK 7 or 57cm), L (UK 7 1/4 or 59cm) and XL (UK 7 1/2 or 61cm). In beige, brown or black.
