I have no problems with Leeds at all - I’ve always thought of it as the Sheffield of Yorkshire.

(Somewhat) old "Old man & the Sea" hat from Kapital. (Think 5+ years now...)

Sashiko white threads is already there originally, added the black vertical threads for fun some years after wearing it.

found out about keith lo bue/the well-dressed head from @MJF9 on the first page of this thread. peruse of his etsy, fb page and cap department fb group led to uncontrollable desire to click add to cart even though i rarely wear anything on my head except a mullet. thanks @MJF9! XD decided to get something plain and basic, this "clover" (lo bue gives his creations names) newsboy cap in what i think is quite plain understated tweed, with grandiose plans to order other more customised caps in the future (almost everything is customisable), since decimated by corona. i even counterintuitively refused to order this four-panel newsboy (like the one the duke posted above and unlike the usual 8- or 6-panels) in patterned fabric and play around with pattern matching/arrangement (mild regret). the only thing that was custom on this one is the liner and the size. i've loved it so far, though it can get a bit hot in the tropics. it's like the cap equivalent of good denim, i keep finding new things about it to look at, caress, fondle, sometimes even wear! he does offer thai linen and hemp straw that would be cooler. most of the deets are the same as @MJF9's l'aronde you can just read his specs desc. also the customer service was genco/masuya/psa-level!

Keith’s work is amazing; pricey but you get what you pay for.

Simonds Caps and Cordova also look very nice.

Loving your dangerously seductive description as well... Etsy is now calling me back to be mesmerized again!

Ok. They’re open in the U.K. as long as it’s only 2 people on a round and they keep 2m apart. Clubhouse closed though. 

Hopefully they open soon for you guys.

It was August very hot and humid. A nightmare. Backpacking. Gave my cap to a kid and got this. I felt ashamed wearing it as I thought locals wouldn’t like it but it was ok. It worked better than my cap. Rain and sun away from me.

Cons- bringing it back home in my hand all the time.

Bronson Mfg. Co. Daisy Mae after about two (three?) years' regular wear—at this point this is my only hat, so it sees plenty of sun and rain and sweat and all that

Started off dark, dark indigo

I really enjoy how much more heavily the front has faded than the back (first and second pics, respectively), I guess just due to wicking up that much more moisture
