Love the hat. I am sporting a similar hairdo for about 8 months now and wear a similar cap through the winter. I don't wear a suit that often but I am starting to and I am glad to see that the cap can compliment the entire look. Well done!
Yeah they're expensive here as well and the only reason I have them is because my gf's dad gave me a couple of packs. There's a tobacconist near me that carries them but like you said they are just too overpriced...something like $15 a pack
