    shants-made cycling caps

    so, i've made a couple of cycling caps in the last two days and i figured that i would post pictures of my second (out of two) and best one. it's made from a wool suit coat and is ****ing lined (same lining that was in the jacket. i like a slightly longer bill on my cycling caps (you see some from the 70s and 80s that are like this), so this cap reflects that. i can make them smaller, though. in any case, i am going to start selling them soon, but this post isn't about that. i have to get my process down a little more so that i am more efficient and make a web site, but yeah. you'll be seeing my **** soon.

    here it is (i look like a ******bag in this picture - just pay attention to the hat):


    the inside w/ lining:

    hat not on me (**** yes for the hello kitty boombox):

    the lining, close up:

    I've got a couple under my belt, but can't find anything suitable to use for the bill. Mind sharing your secret?

    that looks great. I wouldn't use wool for the inner band. Cotton duck or poly ribbon would be my choices.

    You should pick up some Harris tweed jackets at resale shops, and use em complete with label. A Harris Tweed cycling cap that'd be the ****!

    I'd be down for supporting an individual trying to make a few bucks and dually making me look pretty when I'm riding.
    If you can make one suitable for Texas (as in, unlined) and in a breathable material, I would be interested.

    That is a sweet cap. I am a sucker for maroon.

    I just bought a handmade cap off of ebay awhile ago, but I would really want one of your caps when you sell them (well... if you make one from a non-wool fabric or faux wool).

    I like the lining .

    Very cool.
