Jimmy, Lock caps purchased yesterday? I went in late yesterday afternoon and picked up two Muirfields, following your recent suggestion in a thread. My hands were full of shopping, so didn't feel like fumbling with an umbrella in the snow, but the cap did almost as good a job.
Busy store, with several Americans buying a couple of flat caps each, as gifts. There were taken aback when I walked in covered in snow - nobody had walked in for the last 15 minutes, since it got heavy.
I purchased it a tad bit before the snow actually, the weather was getting awful and i'd grown tired of my other one. Lock & Co in itself is a charming shop. I wonder how much disposable income I would have to have to justify one of their velvet smoking caps.
Ebay treats me well during my hunt for vintage tailored clothing. I've scored new-old-stock suits in flawless condition from the 50s and 60s, a DB tux from the 40s (with grosgrain lapels) that's essentially brand new and unworn, and now this latest Oxxford.
And then thrifting yesterday, found a pair of Florsheim Imperials for $3.45.
