Cool weather waxed cotton cap from Outlier

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.
