ABOUT THE IVY STYLE CAPS - ROBUST AND SOPHISTICATED
Ivy is a plant, but is also an informal term for eight of the oldest and foremost universities in the United States. At the beginning of the 20th century, when all men wore some kind of headwear, the Ivy cap could be seen being worn by the working class as a day-to-day cap, and by the upper class during sporting activities. In the same way, Wigéns Ivy caps exude a mixture of robust, bold, timeless and sophisticated styles. The cap is sewn with a single piece of fabric and has seams at the edges that create the fit. The rule of thumb is that the slim models fit best with narrower faces, and the classic models fit best with rounder faces.
In 1906, Oscar Wigén founded Wigéns, a high quality & tailored hat and cap producer. A bespoken expertise within the company both of design and producing. The reason for the Wigéns success has been the same for more than 100 years and the factors are: High quality, the best fitting, timeless fashion and their own factory. Wigéns are proud producers of the best caps and hats in the world.
The pieces are strictly hand-made from the first detail to the last, all manufactured by Wigéns own production. The exact fit is the result of still using wooden blocks and a hand finish on each cap, which gives an exact and unique fit, and the fact that Wigéns is using only the best fabrics from high quality European weavers.
The final stage is the quality control before delivery. Just as in beginning of Wigéns history, the finishing must carefully follow instructions from the design department that are well thought out and elaborated.
