For more than 120 years, British company Castrol has been at the forefront of oil technology.

Company founder Charles Wakefield launched his first vehicle engine oil in 1906, a pioneering blend of mineral and castor oils that offered unrivalled lubrication properties. Since then, and through many further innovations, Castrol oils has lubricated the beating heart of everything from speed records to Mars missions.

Interestingly, Castrol was the first company of its kind to promote its products through sponsorship, which swiftly led to advertising and merchandising. By 1946, when the iconic Castrol Classic branding was launched, Castrol offered a wide range of workshop regalia in the distinctive green, white and red colours that had been synonymous with the brand since the early 1900s.

Inspired by those products, Castrol Classic Oils has produced a range of high-quality merchandise, all bearing that familiar post-war branding. Now numbering 31 product lines, the latest addition is this Baker Boy Cap, the retro style of which has enjoyed a fashion resurgence thanks, in part, to its association with period crime drama TV series Peaky Blinders.

The Classic Baker Boy Cap is perfect for open-top motoring during the autumn and winter months. Its distinctive, round body design is created using traditional eight-panel construction, finished with the signature button top and reinforced peak. It is presented in heavy-duty fabric woven with a subtle brown-and-black herringbone pattern and embroidered with the familiar Castrol script in red thread on the back.
