About us

Our family roots stem from Burnt Savannah Westmoreland Jamaica and cross the seas 4000 miles to South London in the UK. We came from humble beginnings where 12 people lived in our family home pictured here where 5 brothers and 5 sisters were raised.

Our Name

Billy Balton Mckitty 1936 - 2015


The name Flat Cap is paying homage to our late father who arrived from Jamaica in the early 1950's and was known for wearing a Flat Cap! and we are honoured to bare that symbol in our logo and our name.
