With a cool and collected approach to design, this brand understands that tasteful fabrics, classic flat cap charm, and some 1920s swagger thrown in for good measure are the perfect ingredients for a fresh thinking collective that meet the aspirations of Birmingham’s people in the know, young and old.
Believing Birmingham is on the cusp of landing the tag as the ‘coolest city in the UK’ the Frederick Cameron team wanted to be a key part of its transformation. From global investment, to the hit BBC show Peaky Blinders, they feel proud of the fact others are realising what Brummies have known for a long while.
Birmingham’s pub scene has been evolving for decades, and whilst the smoking ban 10 years ago changed the culture forever, the arrival of beer gardens and the revival of home brewing and street food catapulted the Brumtown scene on the world stage. Frederick Cameron are passionate about this and feel their brand adds to the fabric of the city in a way which enchants people to the stories buried deep within the backstreets of old factory quarters and canal side spaces.
When you purchase a cap from Frederick Cameron there are a number of things you get for your readies. For starters, you will get to choose, based upon postcodes and regions, old school job titles and historic gems. For example the “Moseley” Newsboy Cap, which dons a double snap brim and a pattern mixed with both dark and light browns. The cap is lined in quilted satin for extra warmth and comfort. There is a quilted satin lining and a grosgrain sweatband inside the hat. There are two brass plaques uniquely positioned in true Peaky style. Or you have the B9 Bordesley Green – or perhaps you feel more comfortable with a B5 Digbeth – the choice factor gives the brand a unique and interesting edge.
All of the hats in the collection come with their very own bespoke engraved brass plaques both at the back of the hat and one just above the front bill.
Hat customers also get a very special message in a bottle, a true collector’s item which is sure to add a real personal value to owners as the brand grows in popularity all across the city, and internationally too.
