I know what you mean. Wearing a cap stained with Gook blood when you haven't made the kill yourself. Tragic.

More because they look like they're from the bargain bin in Hamley's, next to the nerf guns and gijoes.

On the lookout for something like this Larose bucket hat, something preferably black (or dark) and textured and with minimal branding. Don't want to spend too much… Let me know if anyone has anything to shift.

Looking for a plain navy wool mix or cotton baseball cap that is lower profile than an Ebbetts. They look really high. I prefer the RL or similar ones that Def look lower.

Anyone seen any that are made in USA or Japan? Do Ebbetts do a lower profile model?

Prolly not your aesthetic but I gotta blue wool one from Arket during the 2019 rinse, Cracka; much lower profile than my NY Ebbets cap and a more malleable peak too. Also got a plain grey New Era wool cap but it's far more rigid than the Arket one.

Ta Burt. I think the NE and Ebbetts are nice but sit a bit high. Company's call the sort I'm after a 'dad cap' Laughing out loud I think it's a more modern and unstructured style.
