    My guess is not to clip it, unless there are snaps holding the front of the crown down to the brim like the two I own. If you clip it, I don't imagine it will cause and problems, actually you would be able to pull it lower on your head with the front part of the crown raising up making it look like an M43 cap. The reason I wouldn't clip it is if you want to keep it as it is. The stitiches help it stay that way on a windy day.

    Indycop, Deanglen, and Cookie, Thank you for the kind words.

    Cookie I bought it at a local shop called "Soul Boutique". The brand is UBI and unfortunatly I could not find an online retailer that had the same hat for sale. I suspect if you contact the manufacturer they might know of a local retailer in your area.

    Nice caps gentlemen. I don't have a good picture right now,but I'll try to get something tomorrow. I have B! Wear caps and they are nice although I'm going to add to the general consensus that a leather or fabric sweat would be a bit more comfortable. Another company that makes a fine cap is "The Hat People" which is, I think, in Oregon. They offer a choice of 'floppiness' for your cap ranging from very little to quite a lot which I think has a truer vintage feel. The brims aren't squared enough on the end though.
    Being well adjusted to the modern world is not a sign of good health.

    dean, B!Wear puts in a leather sweat if you specify it. I specified a leather sweat in mine. No extra charge for it (at least back then).

    Here's my addition to the rogues gallery...

    It's a grey newsboy/Gatsby I got for the lovely price of £4.99 from H&M...a high street fashion shop over here in the UK, I also got the same cap but in a brown shade, lovely caps for the money.

    I like to wear it with my genuine 1970's dark brown leather coat for that Hells kitchen mobster look
