    I find them a bit stubborn for that reason. However, they do keep the hat firmly in place.

    Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I don't have a camera at the moment so I'm using old shots from my old camera.

    I asked a friend who had a vintage clothing business to keep an eye open for Taylor hats or caps, as I'd seen these ads in some old magazines.



    (Hey, who couldn't use an extra $20 per day.)

    She remembered the Taylor aurally when she came across these Tailored Caps... I think she got them on Ebay, and they may have been posted here in another context. I bought a few from her, though they are far too small for me.



    All 8 panel caps from the late 20s or early 30s, all NOS, mint, unworn condition.

    A Blue-grey (again, pics are stinky, colour is off, sorry)


    A brown-grey crescent weave


    And my favourite, a brown- tan herringbone with blue-grey windowpane check


    All are Tailored Caps


    Adjustable using this rather fancy buckle


    All are also tiny (I have nothing to say about "the myth"), no larger than a 7 when fully extended, and probably best looking at a slightly tighter adjustment than that. I think they may have been childrens or "young men's" wear.

    Anyway, there they are.

    If you ever visit Toronto I'll give you one.

    Edited to add: or if I ever visit the land of white van exhaust fumes etc.

    Jake! My word, those are astounding examples of the golden cap era. Great! Feraud, would B Wear put a leather sweat in, if asked? Big Sleep, your offering is so tough looking, only wish so much of it was hidden in noir shadows!

    Yes I think they offer the option.
    Imho, it is worth the extra $$.

    About Hanna caps ...

    How does everyone like them?
    If this is the same company I keep finding that sells on eBay, they look like decent quality for the price. Sure it's not leather sweat and satin lining, but for $20-30 it doesn't seem so bad ...
    Whatever happened to common sense?
