Over a number of years i've been purchasing the excellent Jaxon and James Newsboy and flatcap hats. They are usually faultless and fit my head perfectly. But my last two purchases have filled me with dismay. This particular one was an exact replacement for a much beloved hat that had started to unravel at the seams. Expecting it to fit as perfectly as ever, i was shocked to discover it had lost some depth. Somewhere along the line, the hat has lost about a 2cm wide strip of material around the sides and rear and no longer feels snug or wearable in a brisk wind. I might put it down to a one-off fault in manufacturing, but the Millerain waxed version i purchased a while ago was even worse and with a smaller brim too. I've been a loyal admirer of the brand for several years but am now floundering for alternatives. Will be returning this with deep regrets as it's still a well-made hat. Hopefully, the ever-reliable Hatsandcaps can suggest some other brands for me to try.

Jaxon Newspaperboy Hat.
I received my new cap last week and structurally it is fine...well made, a light wool blend, made in China. The price was excellent as was the delivery. The problem is the hat slides around on my head and falles off yet the fit is perfect. The band material around the back of the inside is far too slippery. What do I do?
Customer Services
Hello, We are sorry to hear that does not fit properly. It seems that the size is slightly too big for you. There are 2 options we can offer you. You can purchase an additional sweatband. It comes in a pack of two which can fit in around the existing sweatband to size the hat down by approximately 1 cm. Alternatively, you can return your hat for an exchange for a smaller size. Please do not hesitate to email us at if you require any further assistance. Have a lovey day. Village Hats

Jaxon & James Herringbone Newsboy Cap - Grey
Definitely the worst flat cap I have ever bought, cheap thin material and poorly constructed.

Just The Job For Somme
This cap was bought specifically for a Stockport Lamplighters Rotary event to celebrate those who volunteered to join up in the first World War and who lost their lives on the first day of the Battle of the Somme 100 years ago - 1st July 1916.
The cap is good quality and the peak unclips to give a different shape. Note however that this makes the cap a looser fit.

Not bad!
This is not the best Newsboy cap at Village Hats and I would say that it's more a Summer cap. I already have the Union and Anchorage Newsboy caps which are much warmer. Having said that, for the price and especially the fast postage and excellent service from Village Hats you are getting the best in internet shopping. I have a lot of respect for Village Hats and it's always a good thing to deal with the professionals, buying a hat from these guys you can't go wrong. Thanks again!

A good stylish hat
I've been looking for a hat in style like for sometime now. So I was pleased to find your website. The hat itself is nice, stylish and comfortable. I'm planning to buy the other colour very soon as the style is so impressive.

couldn't be better
The style and fit is ideal. Just the look I was aiming for and a shade that goes with a range of colours. The peak needed to be flexed slightly to be comfortable and it can be worn forward or backwards. Jaxons range seems to be good quality as this is the 3rd hat I have from their range.

It's a nice cap, but not a newspaperboy cap. Those caps are much wider. This is a modern cap and not a 1930's model, unfortunately.
I ordered this cap for a friend of mine after showing him the cap I made for myself. Well, apparently I can not place a link here to the picture of my cap, so thats it fot now.

Good fit
Great liok and fit, stylish firm! Not knowing better about the fabric , the material was lighter and thus more summery than i expected. But i love it and even where it now during winter although it probably at its vest for spring/autumn.

I have a big head, so finding a hat to fit is difficult. The Jaxon herringbone Newsboy in XXL is perfect. It cam in 2 days and I liked it so much that I bought another one.. I have a pre-war picture of my grandfather wearing this style of hat at a race meeting. so its really "retro"
Oh, and delivery in 2 days with low cost makes this an unbeatable deal for me.

My first but not last purchase.
I was very impressed by the wide range of hats available,and decided to buy myself a Jaxon Herringbone Newsboy cap.The size guide made it easy to find the right size for my generously sized melon. The hat arrived quickly,carefully packaged and at a very pleasant price. It was a perfect fit and was made with great skill from quality materials.
I shall certainly buy more products from Village Hats.

Born and brought up in the North East Of England. I've worn many flat caps, but the Newsboy is a true stylish favourite. I now live in Cyprus and normally its too hot for caps, however now in March I attended a Cypriot event and the locals were very interested! Not seeing one before and definitely different - great value. style and delivery. I'm now looking at the trilbys!!

I had been struggling to source a newsboy style cap since losing my old one.
I was delighted to find village hats range and ordered two - a brown one to match my coat and a grey one to match my hair. Style and fit are superb and easily fold up into a pocket. Delivery was very prompt.

Not nearly big enough
Beautiful hat but you need to make larger sizes available for us big heads! Luckily my partner snapped it up so there was no need to return it, and she looks great. I myself had to resort to a "hand-made" site to get the right fit (25").

Very good value for money and well made - fits very comfortably - could I please ask if it is possible to produce a "winter" version i.e. a heavier material - it's just a bit on the light side - Thanks

A great purchase.
The reason I bought this cap is because I consider them cool. I tried to buy it from a Norwegian company, as I live in Norway, and thought this would make things simple. However, the Norwegian sites I found either did not have type I wanted, or did not have the size. I then found this site and decided that ordering a hat from the UK was almost as good as from Norway. Also, the price for shipping was exactly the same, and the hat itself costed five times less from this site then the Norwegian one I was considering. It arrived after the same amount of days I would expect from a Norwegian company, so overall the service I have received is beyond anything I expected. 5 stars for excellent hat, price, and delivery!

I love this hat so much that I ordered another in brown. These are so much more stylish than the traditional flat cap. I ordered the wrong size first time round, so returned it for an exchange - Village Hats replaced it in no time at all. A great service - thnk you.

Great design
I have always liked the newsboy/bakerboy hat designs and this particular was a perfect example of this timeless design. It is extremely comfortable and well made. Being totally bald, I wanted a warm hat for the winter but I found the material a little thin form my liking and would have liked a higher wool content. For me, this is a perfect autumn/spring hat, but I am sure that someone with more hair will also find it perfect for winter... Perhaps the manufacturer should create another warmer version using a thicker material for us slap heads :).
I must however praise Villagehats for their faultless service, a perfect example of how e-commerce should be!

a great purchase.
I did want to say how much I like the two hats already purchased from you, perfect fit and pretty good comments from friends.

I'm a gigging drummer in a blues band so they have the right look and 'feel', so all in all a great purchase.
