A hand-knitted and fulled Forage Cap with a contrasting band and toorie that can be colour matched to regimental shades. Perfect for wearing in camp in the evenings and adaptable to a variety of wearing styles. Shown above in blue-black with red or off-white band and toorie, but any other shades you may require are also available.
Typical sizing is approx 10.5inches/27cm across the crown, with the coloured band 4.75cm deep (though as with any hand-knitted and fulled item slight variations may occur between batches), I am happy to modify these measurements to suit individual requirements. This version is now closely based on a surviving example in the Duke of Wellington's Regimental Museum.
Supplied unlined, or I can add a half lining in unbleached linen secured with ten rows of hand stitching for an additional £12, or a 3/4 lining (band as shown plus a 'donut' of linen extending into the crown) for £14.
Toorie to match band unless requested otherwise. Made to order. The way our order book is currently working, we open the shop approximately once a month for new commissions and shut it again once we have as many orders as we think we can realistically make over the next 6 weeks or so. Please be aware that your order may fall anywhere into that timescale. We'll always aim to be as prompt as we can.
