'My Scottish Jamaican dad always wore a at cap to play golf in, but rather than brown or green it was bright red or lemon yellow..worn with a pastel pringle jumper. He was always the coolest guy on the golf course! I loved the idea of taking something conventional and giving it an edge like my dad did. From the beginning I set out to manufacture within Yorkshire and create headwear from the best luxury cloths which luckily are right here on our doorstep'
