The newsboy cap, also known as a "gatsby" or "apple" cap, is a type of rounded cap that was originally designed for working-class men in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The cap became popular among newspaper vendors, who would use the cap to keep the rain off while they sold newspapers on the street. This is where the cap got its name, as the vendors were commonly referred to as "newsboys".

The cap was made from durable materials, such as wool, tweed, or cotton, and was often lined with flannel or another warm material to keep the wearer comfortable in cold weather. It was designed to be simple, practical, and affordable, making it a popular choice for working-class men.

Over time, the newsboy cap became a popular fashion accessory for men of all classes. It was worn by fashionable young men in the 1920s and 1930s, and was often associated with the "dapper" style of the era. The cap remained popular throughout the 20th century, and was worn by a variety of subcultures, including beatniks, hippies, and punk rockers.

Today, the newsboy cap continues to be a popular fashion accessory, and is worn by both men and women. It is often seen as a versatile and timeless piece that can be dressed up or down, and is a staple of many modern fashion collections.

Overall, the history of the newsboy cap is a story of practicality and versatility. From its origins as a working-class cap to its current status as a popular fashion accessory, the newsboy cap has remained a staple of style and practicality for over a century.
