Free WallpapersClick thumbnail to view full-size
A newsboy hat is a front brimmed cap, that can be made out of a variety of materials. The cap got its name in the early 1900s. When young school age boys wore them, as a way of distinguishing themselves as newspaper men.
A newsboy hat can be worn in a variety of different ways. However, it should be worn according to the materials that make up the cap. For instance all leather, wool/tweed, poplin and twill newsboy caps, need to be worn with the brim snapped down in the front. Only the loose fitting cotton and knit newsboy hats, should go unsnapped.
Newsboy hats are relatively easy to care for. Most hats should be steamed cleaned, and not dry clean. Dry cleaning causes them to lose their shape. Gentle steam cleaning and/or a slight brushing off, can usually knock off the dirt spots. Keeping your newsboy hat crisp and fun.
How to measure your head
Take a measuring tape and place it around the circumference of the head, about the width of the measuring tape above your ears. You do not want to leave "growing room." Hats tend to stretch out naturally, so you want a nice snug fit.
