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 cap is modelled on the promo caps the firm used to give away at trade shows and to their professional riders for promotional purposes.
