    Got a long awaited package from Australia today. It made me happy. Inside was this terrific early Lo Bue dandy that I traded Keith for. Lucky for me, we have the same size head :) This is my new favorite cap:

    Also inside, one of Keith's more recent works, this green dandy that I purchased from him. Like I said, I'm lucky we're the same size:

    Here's some side X side. The blue one is and 8 panel and the green one is an 8 dart:

    When Keith is ready to start taking orders, you guys are gonna like it. Thanks Keith!

    Hey Mike, they look dynamite on you! So nice to see the pics. Too bad you'll have to lay them aside for a season!! Wear em in good health, buddy.

    Thanks for the compliments fellas, Keith gets all the credit here though. I just followed the old advice: "It doesn't hurt to ask."

    Keith, I got to wear the blue one today and expect I'll get a few more chances before the temps start to climb up here in the northern hemisphere. Tip of the cap your way bro.

    My love affair with motorcycles has lead to an even greater appreciation of the flat cap. They look spectacular, hide helmet hair well, and store easily in the rear of my waistband when riding. I love my bowler hat and grey fedora, but I fear the results should I try to fold and tuck them into my pants. Here is me wearing a few of mine on different occasions.

    Very nice collection Vintage lover. The vintage camel colored one is a real gem. The Brando style cap looks pretty good too - who makes that if you don't mind being asked?

    Thank you very much for the kind words everybody. I don't mind being asked about the Brando cap at all; it is made by the New York Hat Co. As requested, here are some close ups I took of them:
