    I'm guessing that the Fuzzman ain't using ANY bricks on any of the ladies, blondes, brunettes or what have ya.. unless he catches them molesting the Williams...

    But I have heard he has to walk around sometimes with straight pins in his mouth to keep some of them from kissing him...
    Don't know that for sure, could be an urban myth...but I think I read or heard it somewhere...

    Yo mrchick...I have a Basque Casquette cap, made by the Elosequi folks in Spain. It is shaped very much like your cap.

    My granddad had one, but I never saw him wear it (only on old photos).

    Very similar...this one is Elosequi...It is actually a Basque made beret with the bill drawn out of the same beret, under steam, not added. But they do look similar.

    I like this style of hat but hadn't, until now, heard of Hanna. I"m a Kangol fan with, I think 4 of them, hanging on the back of the door. I'll look into this Hanna now!

    I love hats also, a very practical addition to any outfit. However, inconvenient when eating out or finding a place to put them. And, if there was a place I bet I would forget to retrieve.

    This may be an exercise in futility, but I'm going to try, nonetheless!

    I've been looking to see if I could find myself a size 7 3/4 distressed leather Ivy cap, preferably in dark brown. I have Kangol 504s, but not in a distressed leather.

    The "only' thing I've found has been one "Made in China" of an unspecified type of leather, and with a price that would make you think it was something way more. I say all this to ask if you would keep my search in mind and if you should happen to come across something like what I'm looking for, please let me know?

    Thanks for your time!

    My sympathies, Sir. I share the same blessing of having a "one size fits all" 7-3/4 sized head that doesn't fit all. Be it velcro or snap type plastic ball cap adjusters, when you wrap a cap around a bowling ball it changes the shape.
    Recently got my second one. The light blue Tropic 504 Ventair just didn't go with all my tee shirts so I picked up a khaki - tan - natural. I like how when they get soiled I can wear it into the shower, apply shampoo, and they dry quickly. The blue was made in China, but the tan is USA made.
