St. James is a cap inspired by a Breton watch cap John Arbon bought whilst holidaying in France. It was so such a hit, Dan & Emily had to have one too. Dan, my husband, lives in hats, so here we are; now he can have one in every colour.
This unisex hat has a snug fit to the head, with a folded brim for sturdiness and no fussing with stitch details. The crown is simply decreased and secured.
It should become your go to hat to accompany you on seaside rambles and treacherous adventures which normally involve hopping fences, long short cuts, getting your feet wet and almost always ending with a pint in hand.
