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 Fassa Bortolo pro team cotton cap that is an accurate reproduction as worn by the likes of Fabian Cancellara, Juan Antonio Flecha and Alessandro Petacchi during the 2001 / 2002 season.
Although Nalini provided the team's clothing at the start and end of their existence (2000 to 2005), Pearl Izumi did supply Pettachi and his teammates for a few years.
We also have a limited number of Fassa Bortolo podium caps.
