Troy O’Shea ball caps (Special edition)

Here we have another special edition project we’ve created with the well known Sydney craftsman brand, Troy O’Shea!

The ball cap design draws inspiration from the traditional baseball caps that were used by sportsmen throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s! The fitted six panel construction stays true to the vintage age look and has been embellished with ‘Cleveland Indian’ style lettering for some cool traditional styling! The crown and topside brim have been created using a specially milled deep navy wool, with a texture that feels just like how the baseball caps were back in the day! Unlike the traditional baseball caps from the late 1800s to early 1900s, the brim of these ball caps has been created slightly shorter, for a more modern look. Another subtle detail is the underside of the brim, it has been lined with a deep navy cotton twill! With wear it will age soulfully and compliment the wool exterior!

If you are a major fan of vintage style baseball caps or just love timeless atheistic then this could be a great choice for you!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
