Flat cap advice

As I have to wear “something” on the top of my head every time I go outside for dermatological advice, since a few years back I am using flat caps as I feel more comfortable with them than with proper hats.

Most of them are in tweed, made in Scotland, but I have a few of Italian origin, such a couple Pal Zilery, made by Borsalino, that I love as they are lighter and slimmer than the Scottish ones.

Heh, I bought cashmere caps from Lock as souvenirs before so paid a premium for the royal warrant.

Is it right that Lock marks up linen and cotton caps for 3x from Lawrence & Foster, who in tern probably mark up 3x from some Central European maker? I imagine there's not much quality premium to look for in linen and cotton caps.

Lawrence and Foster manufacture them in Castleford. I have been to the factory. It's a modern industrial unit.
