Never thought I would see it Alan - a hat you do NOT look good in!

Gromulus, I think that shot of Alan is a new classic!

I think he should model one of my two recent acquisitions ('cause I sure as hell ain't gonna). The wool knit has a turned up leather sweatband (with lip), but stitching is not very tight. Age is beyond me. Any guesses?

The other 'thing' is (to me) obviously '20s or '30s. For the price, I had to buy it. :eusa_doh:

Alan, I know from prior posts that you're a whiz on computers. Any chance you could place that cap convincingly atop the pulchritudinous child in your avatar?

Love those caps, Scott... I'd be happy to pose in 'em. Two digit postal codes began during WWII, so the brown/yellow one is later than 1943.

Thanks for the notes on the wee cap and thank you Randall, for the excellent avatar suggestion!

cheers,
Alan

Just got my new B!Wear Cap (thanks for the recommendation I love it, I wish they made Ivy caps), enjoying a nice October afternoon. Just split some wood and got a fire going, crazy weather up here. This year we've had a hurricane, Tornado, and now a winter storm in October, all in Hudson Valley NY.

Looking good there Dr. V, if you could get the chance, some more (close up?) pics of the B Wear would be appreciated. Don't have any from them yet, probably should try one. I just wore my green/brown/black Hat Peoples cap to a Blues Club Friday night, got several compliments on it.

Hat People Linen full cut cap... and my custom Gilet 000 guitar :D Bit overexposed light on the cap. It actually has a small tear on the edge of the brim... gunna be a casual cap, so I couldn't be bothered complaining about it. Could have been done by customs... packaging was in pretty bad shape when it arrived.
