    Nice looking newsboy! I have a "newsboy" or golf hat (?) with the more modern shape, and a newsboy with the more substantial top, like the one above I prefer the older look like above!

    Makes sense about the wind. Could also be the military wanted a certain look/design. Whatever the reason was, they both look good to me.

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    Yeah more or less. Those are a stiffer style. They are nice as well, but I would like to see the lighter bill on the same kind I got. Thanks

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    They are really nice crusher caps. The bill seems a bit shorter than the military ones, but that's fine. They have, for me, sort of that captain from the 1930's steamship vibe.

    As far as Kong Island, for the safety of all, I plead the fifth!!!

    Thank you! Yeah I am going to message them about the liner/hatband sewing. Also, it would be nice to have a fabric/tan version with a light brown bill. But the hats really are good quality.

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    Well I ordered two of the Sterkowski crush caps: a fabric one for spring/summer and a wool one for fall/winter. They are very well made! I ordered on the generous size, since I'd rather a hat be a little loose instead of even a little tight. My only wish is that the lining was not sewn to the...

    Leather Jacket on ebay/etsy?

    Good points. I will pass. Great information! I will certainly look those up! I'd rather spend a good deal more and have something that will last, and stand up to actual wear. Thanks!

    Leather Jacket on ebay/etsy?

    Good points. I bought a real leather jacket years ago that I really liked: some guy on the street "desperate" for money and sold it for $100. It was brand new, with tags... it fit well and was indeed real leather. It wasn't really a "bad" purchase, as it lasted me about three years, but then...

    Leather Jacket on ebay/etsy?

    Howdy. I have been looking for a leather jacket in the style of the German U-Boat captains or similar. Prefer brown, but black is cool as well. I have seen some one ebay and etsy, and the prices are very good. Choice of real or fake leather. I would get real. Reviews are good. Anyone dealt with...

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    LOL! Do you have a better picture of it? Where you got it? Seems like a typical "naval captain's cap", which would also be good to have.

    Thanks! I'll check it out.

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    I like those too. Thanks. But I want one with a leather visor and more like the captain in King Kong or like Jake's in Tales of the Gold Monkey. I ordered the Elvis one, in khaki, as it looks pretty much the same as the captain one. I will likely get the olive/brown one from US Wings for...

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    Thanks. Says they're made in Poland. They seem to be good quality. I will post a review when I get it.

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    I got the Elvis khaki one. Looks like the flight cap. Seems like it will be pretty much the same as the one the captain is wearing in King Kong in the photos above. This is the picture that sold me on it, and I smoke a pipe sometimes, so maybe I can look similarly cool... Thanks for the info!

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    I ordered the cap in khaki. It may be up to a month to get it though. We'll see how good it is. Thanks!

    Crush Cap as Daily Wear?

    Sounds like a cool look the kid had. It's funny how, with confidence, a lot of things will pass. I did an Indy outfit once for a party, and I think it was ok. One of my coworkers said "Oh. So you dressed pretty much like you do every day." At another party, I swapped the fedora for my Akubra...
