I was looking at one of those Lofgren caps on ebay. It had it listed as Large, but in the description it said it was Medium. I also saw a Wigens cap that had a shipment quote for Australia, but then in the description said they did not ship Wigens out of the US. That kind of thing sort of shakes my faith in making a purchase - if they can't even list things correctly.

Stetson Hatteras (made in Germany) 'TROPICAL WOOL' cap - 97% wool, 3% elastane. The fabric is so light that when you hold it up to the light, you can see through it. The sweat band is even made out of the same material and is totally prickle free. Not as durable, squashable or washable like my hat people caps though, and a little dearer, but not having a lining and the fabric sweatband (usually the hottest part of the hat) makes this a lovely breezy comfortable cap for summer, and it's wool. Being a wool grower, I may be prejudiced, but I think for caps wool is better than cotton, linen or synthetics. This tropical wool I believe is lighter weight than linen. I've ordered a linen hp cap as well, for summer, as a knock-about cap and will leave this cap for dressing up.

I recently purchased an Ivy or Duck Bill style Borsalino Doria cap. I find it interesting that you can wear any version of the cheap baseball style cap and noone says you look like a baseball player. The moment you put on a duck bill style they say "you look like a taxi driver!
