So after the moths ate through a kangol flat cap I used to wear (I think it was a kangol 504 wool flat cap) I'm looking for something new.

I really look terrible in hats, but the wife said she likes it, and as I get older, I hate being cold.  So will just use it for winter.

I'll most likely wear it with a long wool topcoat or ocassionally just with a sweater and jeans. 

Anyone have any ideas of decent brands or maybe an alternative to the flat cap?  I"m not going to wear a fedora or anything like that. Just want a floppy on and off deal that I can throw like a frisbee.  Always been take by Max Fischer's red beret.

But I'm really going for something more like Royal's look, even though I don't have a good tweed jacket.

Those monty berets are kind of badass as well.

Good Gawd this is the place I'd ask for a serious recommendation regarding a winter hat. I think the OP most likely had a bad day and needed a laugh.

I should have simplified it.

 

I should have said, I'm thinking about a woolen flat cap, but want something other than a Kangol.  Anyone have any brands they can suggest?

Serious suggestion.  MIght try an Indiana Jones type hat, like an Akubra.  Somewhere between a fedora/homburg and a western hat.

When I wandered into Quebec in the dead of winter, I froze my ass off wearing some stylish hat. The locals all wore piles of toboggans and maybe turbans made out of scarves. They looked funny. They also looked warm.

How old are you, OP?  Because you sound really fucking old.

Let's just say that no one has ever confused me with Armybrat's grandson (the little brown one).

Get you a Driza-Bone oil skin hat like this. Water and snow bead right off and they stay pretty warm.

tantric, I know I made fun of you in here, but I have to laugh because I actually have a ushanka (see below) made out of rabbit fur at my place in the mountains.  It's warm as fuck and I love it, but I only use it when  I'm snowblowing.  Would never wear it into town.

 

I look way better than the douche below, though.

Douche below would give you some action if you wear it into town.

I just ordered kind of a wool newsboy hat.

I was coming here to suggest just that.  I'd sew some razor blades in like the Peaky Blinders, though.
