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.
We have written a blog article about washing a cotton cycling cap to help you avoid a disaster!
By inverting the black and white colours of the cap's design, this is a little more practical when riding in typical Autumnal conditions.
Unlike the previous version, the central area of the cap is screen printed with its instantly-recognisable checkboard pattern and the side of the cap now features the green and yellow BP shield as well as the Michelin logos.
As well as this inverted version, an authentic white Peugeot cotton cycling cap is also available.
