cap in hand

The meaning comes from the days when wearing a cap or hat was considered part of a man’s wardrobe when out of the house.
To show respect, you would take your hat off and hold it in your hand, especially when the person you are talking to is more senior in rank or holds a position of respect (the bank manager).
