    I've been lurking here for awhile and finally decided to join the group. I've learned a lot so far and look forward to learning more.

    I've been searching (to no avail) for a cap similar to the one worn by John Wayne in the movie "The Quiet Man". The closest I can find is a Newsboy cap (which is a possibility) but I'd prefer my first choice.

    Can anyone suggest a retailer that I could contact?

    Thanks in advance.

    That looks like the Strathcarron cap available from Scotch Corner (the top cap on that page) in a wide variety of tweeds, for $59.00.

    Another possibility is the Turnberry from James Lock

    It's actually very hard to get modern caps that are exactly the right shape, diameter and pattern of tweed. As always, I reckon keep looking on ebay, especially ebay UK. I have seen a few near ringers of late including a nice french casquette went for about ?Ǭ£13.

    EVERYTHING turns up on ebay in the end. You just have to put the effort and patience in.

    My favorite movie. Great cap, too.

  8. "Cable Car Clothiers". The preppiest store west of the Rockies. I've always wondered how it survived the '60s in San Francisco.
