Newsboy Cap
I really like this cap. I found it to be true to size and fits comfortable. I bought it in a brown tweed to wear with blue jeans or other brown pants for a casual look. True to tweed the cap has very small flecks of color which permits compatibility with any color shirt. The top button is neat and the sides of this cap are fuller than other narrow fitting driving caps and that's just the look I wanted. Thanks for this cap.

Newsboy Cap
Arrived in 3 days. My head is 7 1/4" and the Cap fits snug in the medium size. Great Cap well made. I bought both colors. I have had several nice comments about the hat when wearing it in public.

Well-made, ran large
I'm fairly sure that I took my measurements correctly, but the Medium seemed too large (I have a 7-1/8 hat that fits me well, and several hats in Medium that fit me well by different manufacturers). I know the style is supposed to be baggy, but I thought I had about a centimeter or so of give, and the brim was noticeably wide my face. I might have asked to exchange it for a small, but I feared the small might be too small, and the brown tweed wasn't quite what I wanted when I saw it real life. The picture is pretty accurate, but the weave has specks of turquoise in it, which I just didn't think looked right. HOWEVER: If it fits you and you like the look of the weave, it's a VERY nicely made hat. I order from Historical Emporium because I like styles that society has unwisely decided to abandon, not because I like to wear costumes, and Historical Emporium sells real clothes in these styles. This is one of them.

love it
I took my chances finding that right of 8 panel cap...but they have a great return policy if I had any issues. But it looked real good... not too puffy, not too small... just right. love it. I'm back to the 1920's.

Perfect fit, well styled
Thanks for this hat. While I don't find the tweed fabric itself very interesting, the hat is styled and cut exactly as I wanted. The size, too, is very true. I'm truly fond of my new hat, and I don't mind saying that I've tried quite a few that didn't meet my tastes. Customer service is very good.

Great Hat
About ten years ago, I bought a similar hat made in Ireland at an Irish Fest in the Chicago area. I somehow lost the hat and wanted to replace it. The newsboy cap I bought on this site was made in the USA, but almost identical to the one made in Ireland.

Just what we were looking for!
Over 35 years ago, I purchased a newsboy cap for my husband at Disneyland - their hat shop was selling it as a replica of the cap worn by Bert, the chimney sweep (so wonderfully portrayed by Mr. Dick Van Dyke!) in "Mary Poppins." He has worn it every fall/winter since and it is on its last legs! We have been searching for a replacement for the past few years and after seeing your ad in 'Smithsonian' magazine, I found this cap on your website. It is practically perfect (the body is just a bit wider than the original), even made from the same sort of brown wool tweed. The size is perfect and the product is well made. We are sure this one will last him the next 35 years! Thank you!

Newsboy Brown Wool Tweed
After doing extensive research on the web, I purchased the Newsboy Brown Wool Tweed cap. The pictures looked good and the price was right. The cap I received is much better than I expected it to be. It is well made (in the USA), fits as it should and looks great. I was so impressed that I immediately ordered another just like it in the grey version. These are definately the hats that I will be wearing from now on. Also, although I requested standard shipping (on both orders) they were shipped 2-day delivery. With such good product and service you can't go wrong doing business with these folks. I undoubtedly will be ordering from them again. Soon.

Newsboy Cap
I am quite pleased with the cap I received. I live in Louisiana where heat and humidity are the norm the majority of the year. I was afraid that the cap would be too warm for our terperate climate, but found it to be quite comfortable. I have purchased 2 newsboy caps from other vendors, previously, thinking I would be getting the big, floppy cap I received from you. Of course I was disappointed when they fit too closely to my head. I am a large person, and the smaller caps are not flattering. This one is. I really enjoyed browzing through your entire catalog and plan on making more purchases. You are a truly unique website, with an outstanding diverse assortment of merchandise. I am truly pleased and impressed.

Well Done!
Very pleased with my purchase and with the service. Excellent job done. So impressed that I followed my first purchase with a second one 2 weeks later ... and I am just as impressed with product and service quality the second time. Well Done Historical Emporium!
