First, thanks to @belfastboy for pointing me in this direction. I also know that @sergejvandervreede and others have caps made by this company. I’m a believer that all companies and hatters need there own dedicated thread.

My first AmiCharnel arrived a few days ago (12 days for shipping). It’s a Kelly green Harris Tweed with a very nice leather sweat. I went with this color because it was a one-off and I didn’t want to miss it. There are many more traditional colors available. I was a bit uncertain as to sizing when I ordered, but my 61.5 long ova fits nicely in this XL. It seems to be a quality well-built hat and I’m certain that I’ll order more as the pricing is working class approved. [emoji6]

If you have them, I’d love to see your AmiCharnel caps for inspiration for future orders.

If memory serves (not always guaranteed!) it was under $10. I wore it in a downpour in Seattle and of course the tweed got soaked but my head stayed dry. It is a plastic like liner between the tweed and the lining of the cap. Does not add any real bulk to the cap.
When I got my cap I was afraid that the liner might result in mildewing. What sold me on the caps was the William Morris liner, as I've always been a big fan of his work. Is Stewart still making them?

Yes, he dropped his Etsy page and now has a website under the AmiCharnel nameplate. I never thought of the mildew issue......so far so good and living in Vancouver it has been tested.

I have been wearing flat caps for 45 years in wet and windy UK and I've never had any mildew problems with them having liners. Of course, I don't leave a wet cap stuffed in a raincoat pocket for a few weeks!

Not seen this maker before this thread and I am having great difficulty choosing just one! head says several, wallet says one!

When I was researching this brand I came across old photos of you in this hat. It was one of the factors that gave me confidence to try them. Thanks for posting.

You're welcome[emoji16]

It's a fine cap, I still wear it a lot when it's colder. I should really order another one for this winter............ now there's a thought[emoji41]

Your green cap is really nice. Next time I might order a William Morris liner. My grey cap has the basic black liner.

My second AmiCharnel cap arrived today. It took almost three months and several emails to get it straightened out. Despite the delay, it’s a nice cap and the XL fit is perfect for me at 7 5/8.

Checked out his web site over the weekend and am intrigued. I assumed the prices listed were just for the cap, so could you give a rough number on shipping cost and any duty tax rate to USA. Thanks.

Cap looks great, Brent!
I know about the delays. I've been waiting for about 6 weeks now.
Stew makes great caps. His planning skills need work, though ;););)


Thank you. I was thinking about buying another but I’m not sure it would get here before summer.

It’s good to see you back on the Lounge. I hope life slows down a bit for you.
