i've been looking a lot on flat cap and finally narrow down to 2 brands: Goorin bros and Harris tweed and knitwear.
i wanna know if their quality is good or is there any other suggestions?

I have (I think) about 6 different flat caps. A couple Magees among them. Also Mucros. A flat cap isn't a complex article. The pattern/color is, to me, what's important. I prefer to buy hats in person - trying to judge color over the internet can be a challenge. A fitted cap is always best if you can get it (vs. just S,M,L) although I do have some "L" sized caps I bought in person that fit fine. Either company you're considering should be fine - as long as you like the style/pattern/color.

Barbour has a wide range of flat caps in tweeds (sporting and dog tooth check) moleskin, cord and waxed cotton. They even do a range of waterproof tweed caps called the Gamefair.

All of the above mentioned are good. I'll add the Stetson Hatteras tweed caps to the list.
