Japanese street clothing brand A Bathing Ape has hooked up with a UK-based company for the Bape x Harris Tweed Cap Collection. The dapper lids come in two different styles and feature three classic colorways.

A Bathing Ape is revered for past collaborations with streetwear and high fashion brands, but the Bape x Harris Tweed Cap Collection is a venture that sees both brands experimenting with rough, unfinished woolen fabric. The caps are available in two styles, known as 'Ivy' and 'Newsboy', and are detailed with a plaid pattern in three colors. Tweed, a rough wool fabric, is the dominant material used in these finely crafted caps.

The collaboration is a chance for A Bathing Ape to experiment with a more vintage look, and stray away form the brand's street-infused styles that have made it famous. Stats for Posh-Patterned Hats Trending: Older & Chilly
