What they say: The evocative Peace Race cap is new and part of our Forgotten Races collection.
What we say: You can always depend on Prendas to come up with something unique, as this casquette proves perfectly. Its design is inspired by the Peace Race, an annual stage race that was first held in 1948 across Eastern Bloc countries as a way of celebrating the newly-won peace, and dubbed by some as the Tour de France of the East.
The central stripe of the cap is a collage (in blue) of the flags – Poland, Czechoslovakia and East Germany -that the race passed through. While on the cap’s side is the name of the Czech newspaper Rudé právo (the Red Truth) which was one of the race’s sponsors, complete with a Soviet-style hammer and sickle design.
Made from a cotton/polyester mix, this is a comfortable, functional cap that can also make for a great talking point at the coffee stop, comrade.
Conclusion: When it comes to design this cap is left field – quite literally. Great price, too!
