We really like Poten caps. The custom sizes (some are adjustable,) the comfy leather sweatband that’s hard to find outside of a vintage store these days, and the heaps of fabric options to choose from. They’re hard not to appreciate, especially when you consider they come out of the same factory that produces the Nippon Professional Baseball League’s hats, so they’re also authentic baseball.
The story goes that the brand’s proprietor Hiro had to prove himself a true baseball fan to the manufacturer, visiting the factory every few months for a couple of years, until they would consider making hats for him. Now fitted cap aficionados everywhere benefit from Hiro’s persistence. The hard part of wearing Poten caps is picking a fabric/colorway, thankfully a hat is an accessory you can go a little crazy with, and Clutch Cafe has just welcomed a myriad of options to their stockholding.
Corduroy, tartan, velvet, and even leather, Clutch selected a nice variety for you to choose from. Each cap is fully made in Japan and comes fitted with a leather sweatband that will soften and mold to your dome, so don’t be shy getting up to the plate.
