Sure like the look of that black Harris...but can a 60 be modded to a 61???
Whoa—-It’s the “Peaky Blinders “ caps.
Love them and the series. It was a hit here in the US.
Now that it's cooler, been rocking this hand knit cap John Tesoriero had made that emulates wartime Red Cross caps knit by civilians for GI's shipping overseas.
It's warm as hell, has that hand made look and fits much like my original A-3. John aka 'Papa Nui', has a cool website and Instagram page.
Anyone tell me what this cap is? Got it when I bought my
B-15c jacket at estate sale. No tags, pretty good cond., strings are o.k. could use a cleaning, but that's "patina" - eh?!
Looks civilian to me.
I take it there's no label, but are there stitch marks where one might have been?
I usually wear A-3 or my Akubra and when it's getting colder B-2 or the Jeep cap
Thanx, Stony. No tags/labels or evidence of having had any.
I didn't know anything about it, except color is real close to the B-15c sage & flaps almost same as collar on jacket. No matter if it's civi. It is still warm with our cold Arizona winter.
Here's a pic of the B15:
I just got my fifth newsboy cap yesterday, so I am officially addicted. This one is made of linen and naturally settles down on the sides unlike the wool or tweed versions. Not as warm as the others, but with spring coming in the near future, I'll need a lighter one to wear.
The show was filmed round the corner were I work.
