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.

Although the team was founded in 1984 by team manager Peter Post, it wasn't until the 1990 season when the team's jersey colours changed with the Sportlife chewing gum brand joining as a team sponsor for three years.
The team performed well throughout the season largely thanks to the eclectic mix of riders such as strong men Eddy Planckaert, Viatcheslav Ekimov, Allan Peiper climbers Gert-Jan Theunisse, Steven Rooks plus sprinters Olaf Ludwig and Jean-Paul van Poppel.
