    Are these acceptable for those under 50? Thinking about building a collection.

    A waxed Barbour one, a herring bone one and a snazzy tweed one are all you'll ever need everything else is just frivolous.

    Can I also suggest a wide brimmed waxed Barbour for those Sunday afternoon strolls.

    Always thought they were the preserve of the older generations. Me great uncles and me Grandad wadnt be seen dead without one. A "Best" for going out, a slightoly older one for running messages and an owld battered thing for going to the allotment or sorting the cree out

    The bloke that wrote Andy Capp was interviewed years ago & he said the germ of the idea started at a Hartlepool match in the 50's. It started raining & one of the blokes he was with took his cap off & put it in his pocket. When asked why he said "Do you think I'm going to spend the rest of the night sat in a damp cap?"
     
  19. Old fogey hats. Not for me. If you're 75, then fair enough.

    I've seen a few younguns around Fencehouses wearing t-shirt/Flat cap combinations. Look well sassy.
