This soft men’s cap provided a comfortable stay time in the home. Four gussets, interfaced with cardboard and falling to the back, were attached to its asymmetrically cut headband. Topped with a tassel of gold-coloured bullion. Gold coloured wire is set in a floral pattern and the seams are marked in gold coloured cord.
