always fun to wear, and JB Stetson has come up with two new ones this year: The Texas
, an ivy patchwork cap
, and The Brooklin
, a newsboy. Made from carefully selected patches in a variety of patterns and materials, including wool, both caps boast a poker motif cotton lining.
Also new this season, but in Harris Tweed
this time, are a couple of flat caps
from JB Stetson, ivy and newsboy style, that come in a choice of colors. Perfect for the season, these are fashionable wool caps with just enough warmth to keep you comfortable.
If it's wool you want, why not consider The Deluxe Beret
? This authentic French beret
comes from France, made by Laulhere
, the people who have been making berets since 1840 in their workshops that remain in the foothills of the French Pyrenees to this day. Crafted from very soft wool, it's an extra wide cap and is fully lined with a leather sweatband and embroidered tip sticker. Keep it in the handsome box with magnetic closure that is included in your order.
The Cooper Jones
is a new flat cap
from Goorin's Everyday line. Made from a lightweight Japanese wool blend woven with colored bits of tweed, the ivy cap is lined, has a malleable sewn down brim and the soft sweatband has forehead stretch for added comfort. You can get this same material as a ball cap
, called The Carter Samson
. It's a One Size Fits Most format, and has an adjustable leather backstrap for a great fit.
Back by demand is The Herringbone Hatteras
, a 100% wool newsboy by JB Stetson where the usual attention to detail and excellent workmanship is clearly evident. The brim is stitched down at three different points on this wool cap
for a perfect fit and finish. There's a leather patch at one side and the lining is a comfortable cotton/poly blend, plus it comes in a handful of colors. Some five-star reviews for this newsboy read:
- I have looked for this hat for years. Fits great and looks great and it's a Stetson.
- This is an excellent Newsboy Cap. I have worn this cap every day since I recieved it.
- Outstanding newsboy. Extremely well made and superb styling. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. Can't wait till cooler weather so I can wear it every day. Highly recommend this hat.
- I love this cap. Stetson never disappoints.
- Wonderful replacement for one worn many years. Fit is exact.
Another tried and true favorite cap, there's that one-of-a-kind Borsalino ivy, The Fiorentino
, a woolen patchwork cap
crafted from the milliner's finest wools. One happy customer calls it a "slick cap" and his five-star review reads: "This is a very nice cap. I am getting compliments just wearing it to the local store. Ladies seem to notice it the most."
Woolrich is another top brand represented here, offering The Wool Blend Ascot
, a traditional Irish cap
from the hat maker's Heritage Collection. The satin lined cap is made from warm 503 Hunt Cloth and customers love it, leaving reviews that read:
- I was looking for a dressy hat I could wear in the winter. This hat is great for that purpose.
- True to size, excellent hat...warm and stylish. Woolrich quality.
- Very happy with my purchase. The hat fits great and looks good too. I'm glad I bought it.
From Capas Caps
, we've got another tweed cap
that is a perennial favorite. The 8/4 panel newsboy is made in the USA, from 100% wool tweed and it offers a relaxed silhouette. Yet another snazzy Capas cap
goes by the name of The Big Apple
. You may have seen the wool melton and leather versions, but this particular rendition is made from wool tweed in Brown, perfect for the season.
When it's frosty outside, caps with earflaps liked The Earlap
from Borsalino (a winter ivy cap
with hidden knitted earlaps) and The Classic Ivy
(100% wool cap with woven sweatband from Kangol
) are nice to have on hand (and on your head).
