    Hello cap lovers,

    I have not come the lounge in a while but I juts purchased a very nice Lawrence and Foster flat cap at a bargain. It's the first cap of this style I have as I'm more of a hat and 8 pannel cap kind of guy. Then I have a question. There's a kind of plastic stiffener in the forward part of the cap that buttons to the visor (see picture). Is this a standard thing in this kind of caps ?

    I think it just depends on the maker and the way they want the particular cap to look. I have a Hanna 8 panel cap that has a stiffener that is covered by the liner (with the snap through it like yours), and a linen 8 panel cap that has two snaps (one on each side) and no stiffener.

    From the sublime to the ridiculous. Boston Scally Co.'s "The Boondock", their version of a six-panel "duckbill" cap in honor of the 1999 movie The Boondock Saints:

    That hint of green you see in the left photo is the brim, which is covered in a green and black plaid wool. And in the back, an embroidered shamrock:

    Yeah, it's a bit silly, but...uhhh...
