Looks glorious ! I’d love to get one but I have zero clue how that sizing works, as I have not worn a fitted cap in decades

With the exception of this one that I have from them, which I picked up in a sample sale a few weeks back,   None of the ones I have are fitted.










At the Sample Sale they were sadly pretty much all fitted. This was tagged a size medium but came up quite big. The only other fitted caps I have are the RMC A-3 mechanic caps in size 7  1/2 (which are a little bit snug but perfectly tolerable). Navy velvet wouldn’t have been close to my choice in a million years but actually really nice fabric in the flesh + the Mrs liked it and it was about £40.

Regarding the remaining Potens I have, they are all adjustable and I have seen a lot of the fabrics in both  fitted and adjustable.  My favourite is the olive fujinkabai canvas...... They are such nice hats so if you can find somewhere that will return them if you do not like, I would certainly recommend checking them out.

Olive canvas









Navy canvas (another one I was lucky enough to pick up from a sample sale) (soon to receive IH patch I feel)








Navy Chu-Zome iridescent nylon (the depth of it is a right fucker to photograph but certainly considering getting the olive one also).









Black (but looks more grey) chino cloth that posted earlier

@appfaff exact same boat, and being in New Zealand makes exchanges very impractical. I’m pretty confident a medium would work but still a little hesitant. Definitely great looking caps though!!!

Hey mate, put up the pics above just to show some of the fabrics.  The fitted ones that I tried on in a medium seemed to come up quite big (as no way in a million years do I have a medium sized head and was amazed to get into one). If you can tolerate an adjustable one though, I would highly recommend.

Hi

I just want to give a shout out to Highland 2000.  By far the warmest beanies I've ever owned. Pure wool cable knit beanie is a necessity and my Highland 2000 has never let me down.  In fact its so warm i find it hard to wear in Autumn and Spring!
