Is there a better secret nod to a fellow typophile than the stylish and discreet H&Co ampersand cap? Long a favorite of design conferees, this soft, well-proportioned cap is free from the vulgarity of brand names and URLs all over the damned place, emblazoned instead with just an enigmatic and conversation-starting symbol. Recognizable by the design cognoscenti, yet cryptic enough to support whatever cover story may be needed to deter the dull or overbearing. “It’s my boyfriend’s law firm” usually works.
A proper piece of apparel, the cap is 100% washed brushed cotton twill, with an adjustable fabric tuck strap and ring buckle, and three-dimensional embroidery on the front. A custom woven label on the interior band identifies your favorite type foundry, and shows what happens when you render Gotham’s lowercase at a height of only seven stitches. Perfect for gym or yacht.
