Hats and Beanies
« on: November 22, 2010, 12:58:29 pm »
With the cold weather arriving this week, I really need to find me a good hat.. Problem is I have a tennis ball instead of a head and a rather round face to go with it...would LOVE to find a good beanie..any suggestions peeps?!
Would be eternally grateful (and a damn site warmer).

Thanks for that guys...bit worried they'll make my head look too round:(
I think i need a pointier beanie (more room on top) rather than a 'cap'.
For example, I like the grey one you wear in some of your photos Beatle...bit more room left on top.
Thanks again for all your suggestions....all good for a hat newbie:)

Beware their (TAD that is) Aussie merino wool.  I asked them and it's from sheep that have mulesing done to them.  I'm no expert, or a bleeding heart liberal, but you're better off with New Zealand merino in general, much less chance of animal cruelty.

as a HUGE filson fan i have been rocking the mackinaw cap for years as well... cant get enough of it.. other than that i always get the USN wool watch cap from my local army surplus store..is about 10 bucks and its warm.

that being said i sort of have my eye on a BR watch cap as well they are super nice and seem really warm.. i just like my watch cap to be little shorter when i roll it up..

i bought one of their watch caps last week and i like it so far. also, a normal USN watch cap from a surplus store is always a good investment. warm as hell and under $10.
