    TotallyToonsTV 3 года назад Living in England, in the Yorkshire countryside, all of these are pretty much our native hats. Everyone outside Yorkshire calls us farmers if we're caught wearing one....pffft what do they know.

    A R 3 месяца назад (изменено) From Kansas City. When younger I was taught these are caps of boys and not men. I like them enough and have entertained the idea but am still searching for a proper hat. Can’t seem to shake that characterization.

  • Steno Fusco
    Steno Fusco 3 года назад In Italy all of these caps go by the name of "coppole" (singular "coppola"), from a Southern Italian word that literally means "head". It seems that this cap was first introduced to Italy by English people in the 19th or early 20th century but it soon became a staple of the typical Sicilian clothing style. Today it's not as common as it used to be, you usually see it sported by old people (not only in Sicily but in the whole country) but as of late flat caps are having a sort of revival here too. The Italian coppola usual comes in a plain flat pattern, sometimes featuring a snap brim, but some other patterns are slowly taking hold in the past few years.

    Taxidermistification 3 года назад +Steno Fusco The caps seem rather low, are they actually on his forehead, or do they stop wear hat meets hair and just cover the forehead?

  • Steno Fusco
    Steno Fusco 3 года назад +stan smith Good choice, flat caps are very traditional here and I personally think they're classy but still informal at the same time (differently from fedoras, for instance), so that you can wear one in different situations. Plus they come in a variety of patterns so you have plenty to choose from.
  • stan smith
    stan smith 3 года назад +Steno Fusco That's good to know, when I visit Europe, I'll wear a flat cap instead of a baseball cap so that I won't look like a tourist.

  • LRWS
    LRWS 4 года назад This really helped me out. I had no idea there were so many styles. I've always been a fan of fedoras but they don't fit my head that while and I think a flat cap is the answer. :)
  • SNOOP U 2
    SNOOP U 2 11 месяцев назад The baseball caps are goffy and have no use but to look like a baseball sport's fan like everyone else you can find those hats in any corner store's made in China they pump those cheap over priced baseball caps by the millions everyday because they are a cheap hat that doesn't last or blows off there head when the wind catches it. I'm not a HAT person but I told myself if I'm going to buy a equality made in the USA HAT!! I have several of them to.
  • SNOOP U 2
    SNOOP U 2 11 месяцев назад LRWS the flat cap is more of the working man's hat that had to work in rough and cold claimants shovaling coal dirt brick it held on there head better than the Fedora was the office man's hat that he would hang up along with his jacket the big brim hats were for the people that worked out in the sun to keep the sun off there face and neck and most people spent there day's out doors not like today with all the conferts of life everyone has two or three cars they can hop into without being in the weather like the old days people walked or bus or train. Just a little history on Hat's.
