    The Cap Faction

    The Cap Faction has arrived! Newsboys, flatcaps, vintage ball caps, winter headgear, all essentially non-fedora headwear should be posted here to swell the ranks of this latest strata of our Lounge. Since I'm kicking this off, here's a starter:

    Nice caps, Rene! Centered seam in the bottom one, you know I like! Both are terrific!

    Great!

    Hello fellow cap connoisseur's!

    Not a brilliant pic I'm afraid... vintage 'Utican'



    And my modern one from 'Miller Hats'...



    This 'instant collection' is a very recent ebay purchase....



    They turned up yesterday. All look to be vintage, but there are issues with the peaks. Nothing that can't be fixed though
    I'll post details and photos as soon as time permits...
    Vintage on a Shoestring Budget ;-)

    Hey deanglen, who made the cap you've got on? It looks like what i'm looking for. Alot of the newsboy caps are too wide and floppy for my taste. Or the brim is too short. That one looks just right. I need one.

    Absolutely stunning caps, gentlemen! Mike1973 and Fleiger thank you for your postings: Don't you just love that look? And rotten03, you're going to love this, my cap is from Burlington Coat Factory. I used a gift card to buy it, and they went for about $9 at a half off sale. I love them, and yes, as you noticed the proportions and look are just what I wanted, short of a more expensive purchase.

    I've just ordered my first newsboy from BWear, in charcoal gray. I will post pics when it arrives.
