Good morning cap folks. Here are a couple of caps I have worn the past days.

Love it... I typically have one of my newsboy caps on while in the house during the winter.

They're a good option. I've misplaced the watchcap this morning and need to get on with some stuff, so I've thrown on a denim A3 (not quite as warm, but enough to keep the chill off the bald!). Got a smoking cap and a few fezzes that are also useful when there's company... ;)

Boy, I like that cap! Mr. Lo Bue sure does nice work; I only wish I could afford it.
Thanks, Al. I was lucky enough to snag this on eBay for pretty cheap a while back.

I forgot to mention that when I was walking through the craft store with my wife during the holiday break, the woman working at the fabric counter couldn't get over the cap. She was actively assisting a customer but still made a point to comment on it as we walked by.

SJC (Cathcart Heritage now) eight-dart cap from the 16/17 Winter collection. Corduroy with brushed cotton lining; the warmest cap I've ever owned other than a B2 or a ushanka (assuming the latter is a cap rather than a 'hat' - jury's out on that one!). Paris today for my last teaching trip this semester, but no Eiffel selfie, owing to a mix of a 9am start and then haring across town in a cab to meet a colleague from another university for dinner at 'Au Petit Suisse', which was a joy. On the way back, I meandered around the Notre Damme area for a bit, chancing across this cute little shop-window display in a store specialising in antique / vintage cameras...

Said and done! I got a new affordable black Ushanka form Seeberger, all polyester.

Short story:
It's cozy and luckily, this only available M-size fits me well!

But the shape altogether is not on optimum in my case:
1. the earflaps are great, but doesn't fully cover my sides, still beeing a little open at the front
2. in your neck, you still need a turtleneck, because the backside is too short
3. the clasp is too uncomfortable over your Adam's apple, when the flaps are lashed together (put turtleneck under it!)

PS:
pics later
