Classic Caps and Embroidery is one of the few remaining headwear (i.e. baseball caps, visors and bucket caps) manufacturing operations in the United States. Starting with one sewing machine in 1928, founder Jacob Pasternak opened Dallas Cap & Emblem in a one-room office in downtown Dallas. Rosalie Pasternak was the second daughter of Jacob and began working part-time in her father’s factory at age 16, joining him full time after college in 1950.
Upon Jacob’s passing in 1963, Rosalie inherited the business. After her passing in 2015, her daughter Valerie R. Granat inherited the business, thus making it a third-generation family-owned business. It operated as Dallas Cap & Emblem Company until 1985, re-opening as the Classic Caps and Embroidery we know today because it better represented what products they provided. Classic Caps ships out over a million custom finished goods a year.
