Mercier BP Retro Cotton Cap

Size Guide
Size Guide: Cotton Caps

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!

If you do an Internet search for images of Raymond Poulidor and Jacques Anquetil, you're likely to find one of our very favourite cycling photos of all time.   The two riders battling up Puy de Dôme in 1964 with their handlebars touching as they struggle with the gradient.

In that photo, Raymond Poulidor is wearing this wonderful Mercier BP cotton cap.
