Flat cap

In the past, Dixie has said that I can’t pull off one of these caps. But I think I can. It might be the beard that makes the difference. What do you think (aside from the goofy look on my face)?

    You need to be a working class northerner – say from Leeds or Sheffield – who drinks hard and races whippets to carry a flat cap off. Having a thin, ratty face helps too. Sorry Marc – there’s too much Dutchman in you.

    I have to disagree – I think you can pull it off with the beard. Get rid of the beard and it would look strange though.

    Totally. I like it. But Rayna’s right. Without the beard, it would be weird.

    I didn’t mean to rhyme. Forgive me.

    While this is an Irish cap (as in, made there), I suggest that flat caps are not unique to the UK. I’m sure there are Dutchmen out there wearing flat caps.

    I think it looks great! I’ve tried to convince Mike that he would look good in one, but he just keeps wearing his Corner Gas toque.

    Linea: I actually don’t wear hats all that often any more.

    I was lamenting to my brother that the wool flat cap is too hot for summer, but not warm enough for Saskatchewan winters.

    The Okanagan climate suits the flat cap.

    i agree – it works. if you squint and kinda go crosseyed – you kinda look like that guy in The Notebook.

    Rod Stewart says:
    “I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
    But to settle down and write you a line
    Ive been meaning to phone you but from minnesota
    Hell its been a very long time
    You wear it well
    A little old fashioned but thats all right.”

    And I agree with Rod. (But I don’t think he’s talking about a cap!)
