    It's a cloudy day so this doesn't show up well, but it's a dark green cap from Mucros, came in the mail today from Ireland:

    Thanks sir. Check out the Facebook group Cap Department. I find inspiration within the posts of ohhh soo glorious cap options. Wear you caps/hats in good health.

    That is some dynamite green wool. I love the fabric.

  6. I've been eyeing Mucros Weavers' "Trinity" caps for a while now, but their "green" herringbone always seems to photograph with a whole lot of yellow in it. This quality in your photo is considerably more subdued than in the other photos I've seen, so I think a green Mucros cap is back on my consideration list. :D Thank you!

    I got it on Ebay. If you look up Mucros and find this color, you can get close ups to verify it's the color you like. And shipping is free from Ireland.

  13. Humble? Maybe. But it's a design that has survived through the decades because it works, and that tweed surely helps to keep your head warm, doesn't it? ;)

    Pano the tweed cap is a classic and you wear it with ease. I like it.

    This mid-morning I have been using our snowblower and working the neighbor's driveway. My neighbor has to head in to work at the hospital this afternoon and her long driveway was an easy fix with a snowblower. A Monsavais cap and Filson wool jacket kept my comfy. The Donegeal wool is both warm and weather resistant. The wool is thoroughly wet and will be dry in an hour and ready for more adventures. The leather sweat band makes it comfy during my efforts and will need a bit of leather cleaner and conditioner after it is dry. Both are drying now inside. The snow is falling wet.

    Thanks Eric, much appreciated.
    Another great cap by you. One day I will need to get me one of those wool paterns (and leather sweatband).

    The silence of the new winter day is profound, but an uplifting silence.
