I have an Eastman watch cap that I am wrapped with. Rate their A-3 cap over the Buzz item; however, no longer in production.

Don't know if you're looking for absolute authenticity or not, but I have a Pike Bros coming soon. I've heard good things about it so a friend in UK got one for me. Should have it maybe this week. Will let you know what I think of it then.

looks great! What are they selling for?

To make money I'd guess :lol:

I'm not sure. I know - crazy - but I got someone to buy for me and I'm waiting for him to tell me how much. Will let you know. Thought it was $50-$60, but that might be wrong...

I earned some Rakuten points and used them to just purchase two Buzz Watch Caps. One us navy in wool (found one) and on A-4 in green for my son. Hopefully I'll get them in week.

Got my PBros. It's nice. Seems like the pics above, so there's not much to say about it. Looks the part, is well made, and it is not too heavy. I hate the way I look in hats, but I'll be bringing it to my campout in Big Bear next weekend. Should be in the 20ºs F at night, so that's it's first test...

Would like to know what you think about the ones you got.

just got both hats tonight. Both Buzz Rickson's. One A-4 green, one black navy watch cap. As far as I can tell, they're the same hat. One green and one navy blue. Just one has a navy tag on it and on has an AAF A-4 tag on it.

Both excellent hats though. Very nice wool and knitting. And with the Yen going down, might be a good chance to pick one up...

Good to hear. Buzz prices tumbling. Good times!

I better look at mine in the daylight - maybe it's dark blue and not black LOL! - which is correct? All three?

Have to take mine outside and look - PikeBros says they're doing both black and blue, so I better look in the daylight :lol:
I'd bet that it's black, but the bet would be small at this point.

The Buzz watch cap I bought from Steve Cobblers has been a nearly constant fixture on my head for about a year now. Great quality and very warm. Love it.

finally really got to wear it out last night. It's warm, but I noticed it likes to ride up. It's not bad, just slowly likes to ride up and I had to pull it down occasionally throughout the night.
