Papá Originals Story


OUR STORY
Founder Raphael’s favorite baseball cap is the original style, invented and first worn by the Brooklyn Excelsiors baseball team in the 1860’s. The style that later conquered the streets of New York, and then the US: the high profile, structured crown, flat brim cap.
He decided to bring the stylish and classic baseball cap back to its  hometown in Brooklyn - the way it used to be. Raphael designed and carefully crafted the baseball hat of his dreams at one of the last cap factories in the USA.
It didn’t take long for friends to start asking him to make ones for them. Calling him ‘papá’ - a term used endearingly among friends in his latin neighborhood.
Papá Originals was born.
 
OUR VALUES
AUTHENTICITY
Since the beginning, our Papá Originals premium caps are designed and manufactured in Brooklyn. We respect the integrity and history of the classic baseball cap. Born in Brooklyn, we couldn't produce it anywhere else. 
We respect our consumers, by proposing a true and authentic product. 
QUALITY
From pure charmeuse silk to cotton canvas and stoned oil leather or lambskin leather, all materials we use are premium, offering customers' comfort and elegance to the hatCotton canvas is one of the most durable fabrics. Part of the Excelsiors Collection, our fine water resistant leather is stone oiled for a most elegant finish. Our signature charmeuse silk lining helps temperature regulation and anti-static control. And part of the Nueva York Collection, our premium Italian lambskin is the finest.
SIMPLICITY
Minimalistic design that is versatile enough to complement classic and streetwear styles. Elegance that fits with shirts or t-shirts. We chose to leave our design as simple as possible. Our team has never liked branded fashion apparels and believe the Papá Original brand will speak for itself.
