    I love this cap. Barry made it for me last December. I just can't seem to pull it off tho. Worn literally less than a half dozen times, this 8-dart flat cap is in excellent condition and ready for a home it deserves. Made from navy blue Melton wool, and sized 7 5/8 (61cm).

    Funds to be redistributed towards the purchase of another one of his creations.

    $95/shipped CONUS plus pp fees (if applicable)

    That's a great cap!
    Barry makes a nice product.
    Wish it was my size.
    Should move fast at that price.

    Bret, we even seem to have the same hat / head size! Haha.
    It looks fantastic! But I also think I can’t pull it off.

    Why do you you think you can't pull it off?

    I thought that too and started with a Stetson cap then moved on to a flat cap made by Herringbonekid which makes quite a statement and I don't wear the tiny modern Stetson anymore. I'm looking forward to buy one from Keith!

    It's hard to explain; certain hats just feel off on me and this is one of them. Have the same experience with fedoras, ball caps etc.

    If I were truly honest with myself I'd chalk it up to my insecurity about my pumpkinhead. But that'd assume I think about my big fat pumpkinhead regularly which I.... no wait, never mind.

    I'm 5'9" and have a 63cm. noggin (7 7/8). I saw an article recently affirming what I'd always supposed - that those of us blessed with larger heads have superior brainpower and higher IQ's. Now, think about this: if you had huge muscles you wouldn't hide them, would you? Women go crazy over them. How much more crazy would they go after a guy with greater brains and therefore greater earning power? Be proud of your superior organ! If I were you, I'd not only keep that extremely cool hat, but I'd paint, in big fat white numbers, 7 5/8!

    Do damned bad that cap is not a 7 1/2 I'd already jumped on buying for my Husband. A great looking cap should look good on anyone. Good luck with the sale of it.

    You know what they say - big head, big cap.

    Any chance you can post a picture of you wearing it - so we can see what the fuss is all about.

    I measure the crown at 12"; think if it were 11" (or even 11.5") it'd be a keeper for me....

    Looks great. And you look a bit like CW Stoneking in this pics. The whole outfit is killer!

    Is it sold now? I got the same size but shipping to germany would kill off the "good deal" part for me. Damned.

    Thanks for the note:) Yes, the cap is still for sale. I think my bottom end price is $89 or I'll keep it.

    I also think you look great in that cap! You look like someone who shouldn't be messed with, a seriously tough bloke.
