A soft, 8-panel, full-bodied cloth cap, with a sharp peak and a button on the top of the crown. The Newsboy is a traditional cap originating in Northern England, famously worn by working men, and by boys selling newspapers, in Europe and North America. It was especially fashionable in the 1910s and 1920s. In recent years, the TV series Peaky Blinders, about 1920s British gangsters who lined the peak with razor blades, relaunched the Newsboy as a cool, edgy hat.
When looking for a Newsboy Cap, It is important to get the right dimensions and shape! The peak should be flat - not curved like a baseball cap - and the overall effect should be of the crown extending down over the peak, shading the eyes, and slightly beyond the ears.
