    A Cordova Cap for today. Warm, gusty winds and rain a-coming has me in a cap this afternoon.

    The mesh sides of the liner help vent out heat.

    The lovely wool contains hints of other colors and makes wearing the cap easy.

    Heading back to work in a light weight wool cap (Cordova Cap). Sunny 35'F temps are comfortable.

    Thanks.

    A little bit smaller. Jonathan worked a bit smaller proportions into the crown and brim. The sides and back have a bit more fabric, than usual, so that I can tug the sucker down. My last few caps I have had more fabric at the back as I like them lower on my back skull and the sides. Misshapen skull can a challenge. The true advantage of working with a cap maker is getting the ability to have the cap really fit!

    Love hats, but not everyday can be a hat day in my neighborhood or situations.

    Eric, thanks for that. I totally get what you mean in regards to proportions and depth. I hate it when a cap feels like it's a dinner plate resting atop my noggin haha. I've got my order in with Jonathan pending at the moment. I've aske for a slightly smaller crown. Think I'll let the rest be in his hands as far as patterning. Hope it doesn't take me 300 (or however many you have lol) Cordova caps to really nail it. But I gotta say I think you both "nailed it" with this one. Cheers!
