great pineapple crest in the tip.
Goorin has come up with a couple of new caps
for the season, these in a blend of cotton and linen. One is an ivy cap called The Niftic
; the other is a cadet cap
called The Jitterbug
. Both are finished with a cool cotton/poly lining and the pattern in Black is perfect for summer wear.
From Bailey of Hollywood, you've got a choice of great caps
for the season. One is The Egan
, which is a flat cap
in a blend of linen and cotton, and it features a pleasing contrast colored brim, and another is The Drayer
, also in a linen/cotton blend, but with a distinctive "dockman" shape and sewn down brim. If you're looking for a ball cap
, The Dundas
is a six-panel cap in a One Size Fits Most format and made from a cool blend of linen and cotton to beat the heat.
The cotton blend Greek Fisherman cap
, decorated with elaborate sutash braid, is a perennial favorite around here, with five star reviews that read: "Good product, good price, good quality." One customer says: "I have been buying this same style for many years. The look suits me perfectly and it's the only hat that stays on in the strongest wind." The Linen Patch Newsboy
from Capas is another cap that earns solid kudos. It's a USA-made, 100% linen, satin-lined patch newsboy cap
with button top, and one customer calls it a "very cool hat" saying he likes "the classy look." Others say:
I have finally bought the hat! Now I can feel better while I'm doing the Charleston!
andFirst saw this cap in "The Plastic Age." Then as now it looks good. Even got a portrait done with it yesterday. All men should start wearing classic hats again.
If it's a cotton fedora
you need for warm weather wear, Goorin has a great A-crown walking hat with a crushable linen body, contrast stitching and side eyelets. It's a stingy brim hat and features a solid cotton underbrim, cotton lining and a cotton herringbone sweatband for added comfort. There's also a linen blend fedora from JB Stetson with a two inch brim and tonal trim. The review on this walking hat
couldn't be better: "Really high quality hat, material is excellent. Lightweight - great for summer. Fit is excellent. Very glad I ordered it."
