Yeah, I have way too many. I only wear about 5 during the winter months and a different set of 5 during the summer. I need to donate some to Goodwill.Y'know, looking at these photos it occurs to me that I have an inordinate number of hats and caps for a person with only one head. I'm guessing these gents had maybe--maybe--one cap they wore to work and another cap or hat for non-working hours.
I'm not sure about whether or not I have "too many", but I do have more than I wear regularly and, on occasion, still buy more. As you wrote, I think it's time to separate the caps I don't wear and donate those to Goodwill.Yeah, I have way too many.

I like that a lot, have been trying for a long time to find one that hugs the head like that, and sticks out on the sides too, like they did in the old days of the thirties and fortiesThoughts on this cap my mum made for me?, went for the smaller style what you started seeing somewhat more into the 40's and 50's but still not modern, it's probably not historically accurate but i think it fits the look and i think she did a decent job seeing as she's not an hatmaker. crown is about 10 inches wide with a 1 inch rim, the crown was 2 circles sewn together, pretty simple really.
