    Not quite Gatsby, although it's advertised as such. I bought something similar for a Peaky Blinders function. See here.
    The size goes up to an eight, you may find larger if you search around the site.

    AKA The Well Dressed Head, I believe. Yes, Keith's stuff is outstanding, and eventually I aspire to picking up one or two of his caps.

    SJC have done some nice caps here and there, some made by Simmonds, some in the Far East, and some made, I believe, in England now. I have one or two by Simmonds and two or three far the Far East, all very lovely. A mix of eight panel styles and eight-dart flat tops, among others.

    Hepville used to make wonderful eight panel caps with great drape. Bela seems to have shut up shop, alas: his Etsy page says "back in 2018" still, I hope he's okay. If you see any selling used, though, well worth picking up.

    Simmonds are very good, per the above.

    There's another, highly thought of in these parts, from whom I've also bought though I can't for the life of me remember the brand offhand, I'll put it up later if it comes back to me.

    Sussex Tweed might be a name less well known in these parts. One at the more expensive end of the scale, but so well worth it: https://www.sussextweed.co.uk/ All ethically sourced, UK-woven cloth, fully hand made in England. Some of them are made from actual vintage cloth if available, while others are made from cloth the company had specifically woven to recreate 30s cloth patterns. Very lovely stuff indeed.
