Are these acceptable for those under 50? Thinking about building a collection.
Only proper ones, not them stupid shaped "duckbill" things...
Timeless imo, have recently been hijacked by charvers who have watched too much Peaky Blinders however.
Wore one since I was 18 in 76, still wear a big old newsboy. In fact I'm gonna say I brought the trend back and used the get a few look off those who "didn't undahstahnd "
Now worn by the Real Ale , Brew dog IPA drinking glitterati of Sunderland , pathetic .......
They wear baker boy caps not flat caps
Love mushrooms me
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.
Pointless and look crap, don’t even keep your ears warm.
Always seemed to be worn by radgies outside of school.
Do they hang out in the Haitian Quarter? @mini-x2
Too many cockernees wearing them.
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
Only if it’s a Harris tweed
Only if I'm in my plus fours
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?"
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.
