Individual single production of a cap from 100,00 €

For over 100 years Wigéns from Sweden has been producing comfortable hats and caps in a timeless design.

The best materials such as merino wool and cashmere from Italy, waxed cotton from England and tweed from Ireland also convinced the royal family: Wigens is a royal court supplier.

Wigéns of Sweden has been manufacturing hats and caps since the company was founded by Oscar Wigén in 1906. At the age of 26 he founded the company "AB Oscar Wigéns", commonly known as Wigéns, in the Swedish town of Tranås. History says he was a man of strong will, sharp intellect and impressive energy. He was also known as a perfectionist. Every product had to be absolutely flawless!

A cap full of style.

Design your own cap with our Cap Generator. You choose the model, the lining color and the outer fabric - then choose the right size and poof - in 8 - 12 weeks your own cap is ready. Handmade in Estonia.  

Are you looking for a really first-class sliding cap? 

Then we recommend the Swedish company Wigéns for an individual made-to-measure hat. Sliding caps for women and sliding caps for men are available in warming wool and cooling linen. And the best thing is: with a made-to-measure hat, not only does it fit perfectly on your head, you also get exactly the design and material you have in mind! Let our configurator at the English court supplier inspire you about the versatile and fascinating variations for a sliding cap. 

Configure a handmade slouchy cap 

Slouchy hats are great accessories for many occasions. They are worn as a fashion statement, protect against sun and wind, but can also warm the head or simply complement a stylish wardrobe perfectly. Brands like Barts, Stetson Texas, Mayser or Wigéns impress with outstanding quality when it comes to high-quality headwear. 

Did you know that in addition to ready-made models, you can easily design your own English sliding cap from Oldenburg online using the configurator in just a few steps? Sliding caps are available in numerous great designs. You choose the model, outer fabric and lining yourself, and in just a few weeks you will already have your individual cap in your hands! 

Design your individual sliding cap

The Swedish town of Tranas is now synonymous with the birth of the English sliding cap. Because it was here that the first sliding cap was perfectly handcrafted in 1906. Under the direction of the young and visionary founder Oscar Wigén, only skilled hatters who knew their trade worked, and so word of the quality of these caps spread quickly. Today, the family business is a successful global player. The royal supplier to the court, Wigéns Sweden, has stood for the very best quality for well over 100 years: pure wool and cashmere from Italy, tweed from Ireland and waxed cotton from England are used for flatcaps, balloon caps, berets and newsboy caps. Exclusively, because the Swedes are naturally committed to their great reputation!

Traditional manufacturers of hats and flatcaps such as Kangol from England, Stetson from America or Göttmann from Germany prove, just like Wigéns, that hats with a wide brim or a casual flatcap are important accessories. These hats have long since found their way into society. Whether on the golf course or at a hip-hop event, headwear in hat form or with a slider has become indispensable for men's heads and increasingly also for women's! Herringbone or mottled outer fabrics, check patterns and plain colours, all are offered by the small but fine headwear that has been the trademark of cowboys, foremen or the great Gatsby.

Sliding caps for men are just as difficult to define as sliding caps for women. They can adorn the head in a classically noble way or emphasise a decidedly casual look.

It is interesting to note in how many contexts visors have also acquired historical significance. The classic beret, for example, has no peak and has been known since the 15th century. At that time, the flat headgear was made of the noble materials velvet, felt or lined silk: of course, this headwear was reserved for the educated and higher classes! In the course of time, however, the beret found its way to all classes throughout Europe as fashionable headwear. Now burghers and peasants also wore the chic cap.

 

The beret then developed into the well-known beret. This in turn was first worn by shepherds in the Pyrenees. Whether on works of art such as those by Rembrandt or in everyday life at the Federal Court of Justice: the flat-brimmed cap has made a career for itself!

 

Another story is provided by the baker's cap, known as the baker boy. These peaked caps were worn in the early 20th century by newspaper and baker boys in America, but also in Europe. Nowadays, this sports cap is associated with sailors, because its flat peak emphasises a chic look and is also a UV protection against excessive sunlight.

Last but not least, the small but fine slouchy hats from numerous films inspire: they lend charisma, pizzazz or chutzpah to the characters and get their nobility not least from superstars like Robert de Niro or Robert Redfort. Whether with or without earflaps, the English-style sliding cap shows what it's made of in brown, light brown or retro. The men's sliding cap is far from being outdated, on the contrary! Whether made of virgin wool in a herringbone pattern or flowing, elegant linen: Stetson Hatteras, Herringbone and Co. guarantee a casual look with numerous attributes. Whether you come from films, golfing, sailing and driving a convertible, the newspaper scene or the committed intellectual and working-class milieu!

What we want to show you is: you have the choice of how your personal cap should look. In various sizes up to L/XL and XXL, the sports cap can be configured in wonderful fabrics such as check or herringbone as well as in many design variations: so that the sliding cap really fits perfectly, does not pinch and becomes your personal favourite piece on your head! For over 100 years, Wigéns from Sweden has been manufacturing comfortable hats and caps in timeless designs. Benefit from this know-how and exclusive look that will not lose its appeal even after years.

Product information: on the way to your desired sliding cap

How do you get started if you want to configure a sliding cap according to your ideas? We can promise you: An English-style sliding cap can be individually configured in just a few steps.

First, you choose your favourite model from five options:

  • the Newsboy RETRO Cap with button, eight fabric parts and most width
  • the Newsboy CLASSIC Cap with button, eight fabric parts and a lot of width - the most common form
  • the Newsboy UNLINED cap with button, eight fabric parts and a lot of width - like the Classic but without lining
  • the Newsboy SLIM cap with six pieces, narrow cut, similar to a baseball cap
  • the Ivy Classic Cap without seams made of a single, smooth surface with a curved visor 


Once the dice have been cast for a sliding cap from Oldenburg, the second step is to select the fabric. Your sliding cap for men can be configured to match the season, just like the sliding cap for women. You have the option of selecting timelessly beautiful fabrics for spring and summer or autumn and winter.

We are pleased to be able to present you with all-season fabrics as well as fabrics at a special price for your sliding cap from Oldenburg. Here you will find different designs and qualities such as smooth wool, flannel or soft cashmere tweed.

In the third step, you decide on the lining colours for natural shades such as beige or brown, for elegant anthracite or radiant blue, which serves as a contrast. Finally, you determine the size of your sliding cap from Oldenburg - your very own sliding cap, a highlight among your accessories, is already configured and only needs to be tailored. You can be sure: These unisex sliding caps inspire with the best craftsmanship, perfect workmanship and wonderful material!

Tips and trends: How do I combine slouchy hats correctly?

The great thing is: there are no guidelines here. Your flat cap complements equally sporty jeans, casual shorts, but also an elegant wardrobe in the style of the English aristocracy. You can drive through the countryside in a Bugatti with an English-style sliding cap and go for a colourful tweed with a timeless check. But dark green, rich red, grey and blue are also available in many fabric options. Choose your self-figured sliding cap to go with your clothes as:

Contrast or complement the colours of your outfit.
tone in tone
or as a deliberate eye-catcher
Like a Brixton, your sliding cap will impress in many situations with its clear, timelessly elegant design and unique handcrafted quality.
