    The Cap Faction has arrived! Newsboys, flatcaps, vintage ball caps, winter headgear, all essentially non-fedora headwear should be posted here to swell the ranks of this latest strata of our Lounge. Since I'm kicking this off, here's a starter:

    Great!

    Hello fellow cap connoisseur's!

    Not a brilliant pic I'm afraid... vintage 'Utican'

    [​IMG]

    And my modern one from 'Miller Hats'...

    This 'instant collection' is a very recent ebay purchase....

    They turned up yesterday. All look to be vintage, but there are issues with the peaks. Nothing that can't be fixed though :cool:
    I'll post details and photos as soon as time permits...

    Hey deanglen, who made the cap you've got on? It looks like what i'm looking for. Alot of the newsboy caps are too wide and floppy for my taste. Or the brim is too short. That one looks just right. I need one. :)

    Absolutely stunning caps, gentlemen! Mike1973 and Fleiger thank you for your postings: Don't you just love that look? And rotten03, you're going to love this, my cap is from Burlington Coat Factory. I used a gift card to buy it, and they went for about $9 at a half off sale. I love them, and yes, as you noticed the proportions and look are just what I wanted, short of a more expensive purchase.

    Howdy,

    Thought I'd file an application for membership in the Cap Faction.

    This one might be my favorite, a Doria made by Borsalino. Charcoal-grey wool/cashmere blend. Bought five or ten years ago at Bernie Utz Hats in downtown Seattle.

    Even the liner is pleasing: Soft to the touch, of a golden-brown color with just a hint of olive-green.

    Baron Kurtz, I'm of the opinion that we beret-wearers should hive off into our own grouping. Berets are in a category all their own. When I get a chance to take some snaps of berets around here, I may well kick off a new thread in their honor.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Tandmark, you've got a classy cap there! And, yes, a beret dedicated thread would be a great one. Get it going!

    You know, before having a B!Wear hap shaped the other way, I would have agreed. And I still like them like that. But all in all, I think I like the other pattern in the first photo better.

    If I had a photo to submit, I'd submit one. I wear a cap most days, in my town job. I prefer the way a Fedora or Open Road looks, and functions, but the cap is what I normally wear in town (but in the sticks, I always wear a brimmed cap).

    My son just appropriated my Hanna hats cap, so I'll probably never see that one again.
