You know Belgian beer, and you know Belgian chocolate. But, do you know Belgian ivy and newsboy caps? If not, you’re about to be introduced to yet another high quality product from this small and marvelous country of about ten million inhabitants who take great pride in what they produce.
Village Hat Shop is proud to introduce our exclusive line of cut-and-sewn flat caps from City Sport, founded in 1898 by Victor Declercq. Four generations later, City Sport remains a family run enterprise and is still produced in the small town of Ardooie, Belgium (population 7,000). Unlike most other hatters operating today, City Sport retains a fierce hold on old traditions—emphasizing craftsmanship and quality materials such as the finest Harris tweeds, Donegal’s, Italian woolens, and other fine European piece-goods. A City Sport cap is truly a hat lover’s cap.
