Yup. I noticed this as soon as I put it on. You win some and lose some.
I just discovered this video from JJ hats that does a great job of describing the differences between all the variations of flat and newsboy caps
Returned from Ireland where I picked up 4 flat caps. Two are Kilkarney tweed and the other two are Donegal tweed. All were bought in Dublin. The Kilkarney tweeds are Mucros brand and the Donegals are Kevin & Howlin. All are made in Ireland which was a goal of mine to support the local economy.

NICE LOOKING HAT!!
Does that Gamble and Gunn hat have a model name?? where'd you get it?? AKA Is it available in the US? LOL
@dkstott - I think this is what you're looking for...
Olive cotton summer flatcap.
This is the cap I purchased.
I have no idea if there is a vendor in the U.S.
Posting this question here for the cap fans to respond. I've seen lots of articles and video's on proper hat storage, but none address storing caps.
How does everyone store their caps to maintain their shape?
I typically toss mine onto a closet shelf. Linen ones get worn during the summer and wool ones in the winter. It's just a matter of rotating stock depending on the weather.
By their very nature, caps don't usually loose shape. They are cloth, not fur felt. I use a large Tupperware style container and just stack my caps in it to keep the moths away.
Thanks, your method differs from what I was told in the past from hat store clerks.
I was told to stuff tissue into them or an old t-shirt when they're not being worn to maintain their shape.
I just hang my berets and caps off the wall mounted coat hanger.
