Does anyone here rock 'em??? I'm really tempted to get one for summer. What are some quality options to consider? I've only found these cheap $15 ones so far, they look to be fine though. I like the corduroy

JJ Hat Center has many fine options, including some ones in lighter fabrics for summer wear.

Well there's just two issues I have with the flat cap.

1. I grew up on a farm in the far North of England and the type of cap you picture is exactly the sort he used to wear.

2. I can't find any that fit on my ridiculous enormous head.

One of my friends wears them though and with his boy face and general skinniness he looks like a retired chimneysweep. Which kind of works for him.

I wear a few harris tweed ones, though it is sometimes hard to shake off the Farmer/chimney sweep/ Miner jokes.

It's just that whenever I see an old dude wearin one, he has a sense of alphaness about him that is unshakable
