I just found a trapper/aviator hat I liked at Needless Markups and traced it back to the source, a company in Canada called Crown Cap: http://crowncap.com/
I bought a different (better than at NM and cheaper on the site) shearling hat, which is on the way. Can't speak to the quality just yet but they seem to have an excellent cost:quality ratio.
I am so sick of gloves that only last a season. Anyone have a line on good leather gloves that can still operate a touch screen?
