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!
Our ADR Agrigel W-Cup retro team cotton cycling cap is our take on the original team cap that Greg Lemond, Johan Museeuw and teammates donned during that fabulous 1989 season.
Greg Lemond will, of course, be remembered for his early adoption of an aero helmet and tri bars for the final individual time trial. However much to our dismay at the time and even more so now, was his abandonment of the much-loved cotton cap, instead opting for an awful, ill-fitting pink Coors Light sponsor baseball hat.
So this is why we've created this hybrid design that we feel takes on the best design elements of the ADR jersey, whilst staying true to the look of the caps of that era.
