Hey handful grabbing enthusiasts, looking to sex up that bad boy with a hyper-masculine look? Aryan’s fine specimen of man meat dons the classic black leather Muir cap. The black brimmed biker cap, fitted with a chrome expansion strap and silver-plated, winged star insignia badge, is a variation on the one popularized by Brando in The Wild One. The cap, which has much in common with the chauffeur’s hat, has gone by many names — master’s cap, old guard cap, top’s cap, dom cap — as its esteem grew with leathermen in the seventies.
