I have been sent a Harris Tweed Baker Boy Cap for review from Peter Christian, the Gentleman’s Outfitters!
At the beginning of December 2021, I wrote a blog post titled Sometimes the old ways are the best! about how we ditched the quilt for sheets, blankets and a bedspread and also that I had purchased a nightshirt and yes it comes complete with the hat.
The company contacted me and said they liked the post and sent me through another nightshirt and a Harris Tweed Baker Boy Cap.
I do not consider myself a hat wearer, even though when gardening I will usually have my boonie on.
I guess I am not someone who wears a hat for fashion reasons and never have been, and my family hates my boonie, especially when I wear it when we are out. Last year, my wife and I were at a public Menorah lighting for Hanukkah and it was freezing cold and on the cliffs at the seafront and so I reached into the rucksack on the back of my wheelchair and pulled out the boonie and I saw my wife take a step away from me.
So when the Harris Tweed Baker Boy Cap arrived, I think my wife breathed a sigh of relief, but I wasn’t convinced!
I have never liked wearing anything fashionable, I will also not watch a TV series if everyone is raving over it and telling me that I have to watch it. I am not sure why? Well, I guess it is because I am weird!
The Baker Boy Cap gained popularity due to The Peaky Blinders TV series, and I hadn’t watched that due to being told I had to by just about everybody. I have now watched it though as I eat my way through box sets due to being laid up when I have a flare up.
So I wasn’t sure about this cap, but the only way to know for sure is to take a selfie, upload it to social media and wait for the honest and sometimes cruel replies!
And the overall opinions were that it suited me and apparently I look less Worzel! 🤣
Peter Christian sell a nice range of Baker Boy Caps with different colour options and I chose the Patch Harris Tweed Baker Boy Cap which retails at £45 or you can buy two for £80.
It is hand woven in the Outer Hebrides (Harris, Lewis, Uist or Barra) has a 100% wool Harris Tweed outer with a luxurious quilt satin lining and Stiff shapeable peak and it is beautifully made and thick. Going out in near or below freezing temperatures I would always have grabbed one of the beard care brand beanies or in below freezing temps my Rab Beanie.
The Harris Tweed Baker Boy Cap keeps my noggin as warm as a beanie, the only difference is that in below zero temps with a biting wind chill, I can’t keep my ears warm, but it is a fashionable and extremely good looking cap that will keep your head warm in those conditions.
Head on over and check out the Harris Tweed Baker Boy Caps on the Peter Christian website and also check out their wide range of clothing, shoes and accessories.
