    I'm no expert when it comes to hats, but I think you would enjoy some of these.

    I can't help but think that this is spam.

    Oh, I guess it does look like spam. I am real though. I just thought this guy would like those hats.

    Meh, maybe, though at least it's a legitimate topic. OP, search the site for 'ivy cap' and 'flat cap' and you should find a lot of links. Ivy/flat caps are not exactly the same but most of the places that sell them have the type you posted as well.

    You want a panel cap rather than a flat cap. Try B!Wear and Hatpeople. You can pick your fabric and cut, etc.

    I have a B!Wear newsboy. It has a lot of bagginess up top, so be aware of that. I was kind of disappointed when I first got it (shouldn't have been; the pics are up on his site) for that reason, but it's since grown on me. The construction seems great, though I'm no expert--suede headband, silk lining, nothing falling apart yet. The price is great. Now that the weather's getting colder, I've been wearing it more often.

    Difference between the newsboy and flat cap.

    Unfortunately for me, I like the look of flat caps, but all the ones I try on look funny on my head. Of course, most of those are from JC Penney. [​IMG]

    THE PERFECTIONIST
    A Smooth Shift to a Driving Cap

    By DAVID COLMAN
    SOME men may have been saddened to hear of the recent slump in sales of baseball caps. I, for one, turned my customary frown upside down. Baseball caps have enjoyed a run atop hipster heads that has surpassed F.D.R.'s stay in office. At the very least, trends should be subject to the same term limits as presidents. In other words, bub, doff it.

    Many men have taken to the far worthier wool driving cap, and with good reason. It may not suggest that you are an indie-rock guitar rebel who thinks two chords are plenty, but it will keep your head warmer "” and more important, your hair neater "” in cold weather....

    I like this model and also this one.


    Borsalino has an interesting Roma model with a shear wool liner that can extend over the ear and neck.
