All of our cotton caps are made in Italy and are a "one size fits all".
In reality, they fit the vast majority of people well but those above a 60cm will struggle.
It is also worth noting that although the cap itself can be machine washed (at 30 degrees), the peaks and ribbons of some caps are more delicate than others.
Therefore in Prendas` extensive experience, the longevity of cotton caps increases with careful hand washing in cold water with mild washing detergent used. The La Vie Claire caps in particular with the original 1980's Tyvek ribbon is only suitable for a cold hand wash only.

This GAN retro cap is an accurate replica of the cycling cap that was worn by the team during the 1994 season by riders such as Chris Boardman, Francis Moreau, Didier Rous, Eddy Seigneur and Greg Lemond.
1994 was the year that Boardman rode to victory in the 7.2km prologue in Lille earning him the right to wear the yellow jersey delighting directeur sportif Roger Legeay.
