    The last few years have seen a real increase in those who enjoy wearing and collecting caps. This thread is meant as an adjunct to the similarly titled thread for hats - so caps on, folks, let's see what you're sporting today!

    I'll kick off the proceedings with one of my favorite bespoke caps by the inimitable Jonatan Cordova, which I'm wearing today. 1900's lightweight wool. Lounger Ed Wiser aptly dubbed it the Split Pea!

    Hope there's some life to this thread Keith but as a rare poster don't count on me. I will counter your swell JC Split Pea with one of your own bespoke The Well Dressed Head by Keith Lo Bue creations. It did its job in the cold and rain here today and even garnered praise from a pretty barista as well. What more can you ask?

    Mike! So nice to see your own pea-green boat is sailing!!


    Thanks Dale! Are you still wearing caps or are you pretty much a Fedora man full-time now?

    I'm hoping we'll get some contributions from GregNYC and perhaps Robert who I haven't seen in a long time… It'll take several to get it up and running but I know you're out there!

    Guess I shouldn't have called myself a rare poster for here I am again. Another bespoke Keith cap in vintage fabric, an 8 panel. This one gets a lot of noggin time

    Yes, this makes you pretty much top poster in this town. :) Nice to see that on you and glad to hear it's on heavy rotation!
     
  10. Nice one Mike! (and Keith)

    Mike I'm really digging the club masters. Are those aluminum frames?
     
  11. Great caps, Keith and Mike. This is going to be an interesting Thread. Hey, where's GregNYC? :p

    Thanks Keith, Dale, & Harv. I wonder where all the cap wears are too. It may be posting on one thread like the WHAYWT is simpler and more convenient. It does get hard to follow all the different threads if you also have a life. Still, don't see how this one can hurt.

    Dale, sharp eye, they are aluminum frames.

    Great idea for a thread! To make up for my lateness to the party, here are two I haven't posted at all, and two I rarely post. (Not in that order)

    In a summery mood, this from Keith.
