A stylish black cap from Galstudio. I’ve been thinking about winter which is just around the corner and how I think I might go for a heavier wool cap for the commute. Something simple, stylish and not embarrassing to the wife and kids. I think this might be it…. now for the ’51 Giro jersey!
Richard says: I Thought about the 1951 Giro d’Italia and the black jersey.
This cap could go with the famous wearer of the black jersey!
Cleverly adapted for cycling but also stylish for walking about town,
this fashionable cycling cap is a must!
Fits perfectly on a 22″ to 23″ head
This cap is black with black stripe. Linen/Cotton.
This fabric is pre-washed to avoid further shrinkage.
Hand wash in cold soapy water & hang dry.
Proudly handmade in small batches in our Vancouver studio.
All items are made in a smoke free and pet free environment.
More from custom cap maker Little Package from her Flickr.com site. Both of these look really stylish!
I was just sent this site – Little Package. Their intro says:
One could have 13,000 of the same cycling cap made in China. Or, one could make 130 unique caps by hand. I am going to make 130 winter caps in 130 days. Get one.
Richard and Guy are always hard at it… cycling or doing their vodcast that is. Great stuff and they love their caps!
In this blog post she outlines her production process.

Waltz Caps are, in their words, are “Small San Diego business making the best darn cycling caps you can buy.” and they do look pretty darn sharp.
The caps are in the three panel design and have some nice triple stitching around the sides and peak. They look like they have a longer than usual peak – maybe a good thing in wet conditions to get some extra decking out the front.
They are also into using different materials. I am generally a cotton cap wearer but as this years winter kicks in I’m looking at the idea of a winter wool cap more seriously. Waltz also do ‘moisture wicking’ designs as well made from the same material jerseys are made. They say they are breathable and draw sweat away.
Going to keep my eyes on these guys.
