I buy a lot of caps on ebay.

You should consider the hard shell type of cap (sometimes called Ascot cap or taxi cap or driver cap)
They look a little more sleek and look better with more formal clothes such as ties, jackets, etc.

I can't get past the fact that Britney Spears used to wear these caps all the time before switching to fedoras.

Flat caps are currently popular. You can always check them out at JCPennys, but I would recommend getting a good quality one. I have one made of Harris tweed and wore it while officiating a very cold outdoor wedding this fall. And thank God the pastel flat caps of the 1980's are gone.

The one Susan Hampshire wears in Monarch of the Glen is a great example:

In case anyone is interested, this is my Speedster from B! Wear. Brett is a great guy to work with - fast, well made (hand made by Brett) and reasonable.

Welcome to Styleforum arson09. Mine are mostly floppy Harris Tweed caps with (hideable) ear flaps which come in handy in bitter cold winds. You rock yours quite well I must say. I am all for some cap p0rn in this thread.
