Waxed cotton headwear that's built to last...

Hot on the heals of their Merino wool t-shirt, Outlier the purveyors of tailored performance wear from NYC are launching the Waxed Cotton Cap designed in conjunction with New York master milliner, Victor Osborne.

A number of things set this cap apart from the crowd says Outlier's Tyler Clemens apart from the crowd. First off, it's a bit more structured and less flimsy to give a solid fit, “this is a premium garment that's wind proof, water resistant and ready for those crisp morning rides season after season.”

Tyler also waxed lyrical (sorry) about the waxed cotton: “Waxed cotton (like good whiskey) builds character and develops with time. The colors darken and the fabric's appearance enhances.”

This cool weather cap is ours for a cool $60, but quality does pay for itself in the end. Available in medium or large sizes and the choice of navy, army green, or black and tan.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
