    Long Oval Issues

    I'm a hat lover in general and a cap lover in particular, but I'm also, sadly, a rather severe long oval. During my baseball cap days, I wore a size 7 1/2, but that won't work for me with a flat cap, at least in the forehead, which always gives me problem. Anyone have any advice for serious long...

    Real McCoy's J-100 (NZ vs. Japan)

    Hello, Does anyone out there know how the older "made in New Zealand" Real McCoy's J-100 jackets compare in fit to the newer "made in Japan" jackets? Do the NZ jackets run a bit larger? It seems like they do. I have my eye on a couple used jackets - but, indecisive about which size to get. Thanx!
