How many of us have truly earnt the right to wear the cap?

Caution, there's another Ecky Thump video that is rather politically incorrect and involves blackface. There'd be a raucous if they did that these days.

Got my Retro Sport cap today. It fits! BUT...the cap itself is HUGE. The circumferance crazy, and looks weird on me. Nothing like Johnny J's. I wonder if mine was an oddball or something.

Maybe they've promoted you to Grand Master.

Maybe they only size the hat band and not the crown with different sizes. What size is your noggin'?

Sounds rather cool to me. I love the big caps on old Brassai pictures.

So I should NOT have gone one size down? [huh]

Thanks. Yes he is. Paris in the 1930s was his main motive. I got 2 books about him. You should try to get one too. Very inspirational and propably my favourite photographer.

Maybe it just seems alot larger than you expected. Please post some pics with you wearing it and we will let you know.

Well I'm wondering if I would have ordered one size down, would there just have been "less cap". But this size fits, so I probably could not have gone smaller. Or if I had, maybe it could have just sat on top of my head.
Since it's not a panel cap, it's truly like a disc.
My camera is MIA so I can't take any pics, but as a cap wearer, I know this one looks strange on me.
It's a beautiful cap though.

:D I have a question. Did some of you contact the seller of the retro sport caps in french or english? I was nervous because I went one size down and wrote her in english. No answer yet.
