    Hello Gents,

    I have been looking for a newsboy cap (I think that is what the style is called?), preferably brown tweed or herringbone, and have done an immense amount of searching online. The problem I have is that I have a huge head and many newsboy caps are bulky, making my head look even bigger. Do any of you know of a brand that makes a nice slender cap without the garbage metal snap on the brim, and for under $100. Any good places to look online? Brands to look for? Chain stores that may carry them? I would love to be able to try some on in person but don't know anywhere in the Bay Area where I could. Your help is much appreciated!!! This is similar to what I would like:

    But even this is tad bit too "bulky" for me.

    I got a very nice tweed cap from Sierratradingpost last winter. I don't see anything like that in stock, but they will most likely get a nice stock of winter caps in the upcoming months. If you're not time-sensitive, it's worth checking in once in a while. Only for reference, here is the cap I got in color 73, which is regular tweed; it is out of stock. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/Pro...x?baseno=56417

    Miller Hats has a nice tweed cap selection here. They also have regular wool and cotton caps.

    I ordered some caps made by Magee of Donegal from another hatter (edit: paid about $35 each for those), but I can't remember the name: I'll find it and post later.

    I bought a nice one from Land's End - a Harris Tweed without any hardware.

    They don't have any yet, but will come fall - about $45 or so, regular price.

    You can order and if it doesn't fit - return it to Sears.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for all the great recommendations gents!

    I really like the Sierra Trading Post one that Earthmover posted but alas, as he mentioned, it is out of stock.

    Call them if you have questions or concerns - the people in the store (NYC) are extremely knowledgable and nice. I have a large head and received a newsboy cap from there just this past christmas. It was a slimming style that worked well. It looked closest to the JJ Ivy, but was a bit thinner and I think made by Borsalino.
