What can we learn about the people throughout history who have donned a Flat Cap and how can that help us today?
Like the resilience of young Felix Poe. (Shown in the family photo on the bottom left) Born to a poor Kentucky farming family in 1925, He and the Poe family endured the great depression and a migration to Ohio for work in the onion fields of Alger.
Later, Felix would see U.S. Naval service in the Pacific Theater of WWII and then go on lead a full life raising a family of his own as a sharecropper in the farming fields of Ohio.
When we think of the Flat Caps we bring to our customers, we believe they are not just a stylish fashion item or a practical piece of headwear. Which they are, but...
Each Poe & Co. Flat Cap is chosen by its wearer for a plethora of reasons. Perhaps it begins with "It looks good" or "It's a change to my regular ball cap" but many choose them for their heritage and the generations that wore them through tough times before.
Poe & Co. Flat Caps are a "Tip of the Cap" to the greatest generations and come with history and authenticity in each thread.
