Born through a desire to increase up-cycling, we have teamed up with Sydney based artisan hat maker, Troy O’Shea Handmade to make a very limited batch of vintage baseball caps from dead stock garments.
After buying a handmade cycling cap on his honeymoon in San Francisco and discovering it was too big, Troy decided to take a couple of sewing lessons and buy his first machine. Six vintage single needle industrial Singer sewing machines and four years later, it’s fair to say that Troy’s visit to that boutique bicycle shop was a fortuitous one.
Troy O’Shea Handmade designs and constructs 1930’s—1940’s inspired caps from his home in Sydney. Taking around three hours from cut & sew to finish, his caps are a testament to true artisan quality.
Stan Ray X Troy O’Shea Handmade caps are inspired by US Army N3 caps used through WWII, featuring a semi soft brim that has been traced from an original pattern and a rear adjustable strap for a comfortable fit. The caps available in two colours, Double Green - a multi-coloured version featuring two slightly varying shades of olive green - and Natural.
