Product Details



The eight-sided cap is made of our finest black plush velvet, which is recognized worldwide as the industry standard. A yellow silk tassel is included with the cap. A gold bullion tassel can be included for an additional $10.

What is the difference between the silk and the gold bullion tassels?

First the similarities: The silk and gold bullion tassels are identically shaped (you can see the bulbous shape in the pictures), and both are produced from fine material. The gold bullion tassel has greater shine, looks much nicer, and is hand-made, therefore it is more expensive.

The choice of which tassel to select is a personal preference. Most prefer the metallic gold bullion, some like the Silk tassel. Silk tassel comes standard on all caps.
