ABOUT THE BASEBALL STYLE CAP
The baseball cap is probably the cap type that people currently use the most. It started to be worn in the early 20th century to protect baseball players from the sun and has since become a very prominent and popular cultural symbol. It is made from several triangular pieces of fabric, but has a tighter fit and a larger peak than the Newsboy cap. Wigéns baseball caps are available as sportier or more tailored styles. Classic and contemporary at the same time.
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.
