Get Ahead Get a Cap
Following the popularity of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society’s tweed jacket and scarf, a stylish cap in the same wool cloth has now been added to the range.
The limited edition cap is made of the iconic Great Yorkshire tweed featuring the Society’s colours of green and gold and the style is such that it can be worn by men or women.
Nigel Pulling the Society’s Chief Executive said: “The success of the men’s jackets and scarves has been amazing, they have been snapped up by people the length and breadth of the country and were a sell out at the Great Yorkshire Show. It has also prompted requests for additional garments to be included so we commissioned the caps and for next year we are also planning to add women’s jackets to the range. An additional benefit is that the proceeds from the sales all go towards the Society’s work supporting agriculture in the region.”
The cloth has again been woven by Abraham Moon and Sons in Guiseley, Leeds and the caps have been made in Castleford, West Yorkshire.
The caps can be bought in Fodder, the Society’s shop and café at the Great Yorkshire Showground and also through Eric Spencer’s in Ilkley and Clarksons in Petergate, York. They come in an extensive range of sizes and are priced £39.95 with a discount for Yorkshire Agricultural Society members.
The idea for the Great Yorkshire tweed came from discussions with Keighley-based tailors Brook Taverner. Their elegant and high quality men’s clothing has been an integral part of the popular Great Yorkshire fashion shows for many years, and the company also supports the event as a sponsor.
