Once again an old-time classic has been brought back to life. The newsboy cap has gained popularity over the last year and has been worn by men and women alike. These caps were made popular in the United States, as well as Europe, in the early 1900’s. They are sometimes referred to as the Apple cap, the Gatsby, or even the Baker boy, depending on where you live. They were greatly associated with paper boys of years past, and have occasionally been seen on the heads of a few golfers and musicians, but more recently they have made a huge comeback in the fashion world of today.
In fact, the recent rise in popularity of these caps can be traced to their appearance in popular movies such as The Great Gatsby, where the handsome and dashing Robert Redford was seen sporting one, as well as them being worn by high-profile athletes like Michael Jordan while golfing, or celebrities like Brad Pitt and Britney Spears being spotted wearing a newsboy hat in trendy and fashionable colors and designs.
