    It takes a certain someone to pull of a newsboy hat – I can’t, but always admire someone who can!

    Not all of the caps depicted here are genuinely “newsboys.” Newsboys tend to be round and full; the hat on the gentleman with the bag seems more like a flat cap.

        The lady in the top left is wearing a newsboy. The lady in the top right and the gentlemen in the middle right is wearing a flat cap, same with the lady in the bottom left. Lastly the man in the bottom right is in a baret or an ivy league cap.

    Good inspiration. I wear newsboy coats; it’s one of my favorite accessories. Also little Leo wear this coat!

    I don’t usually like them, but the use of them here is superb

    Coincidentally (too many coincidences on this blog (life in general?) to believe it’s random), I was looking at one out by J.Press today.

    This is the not-your-grandfathers-hat-hat.
    My grandpa wore one of these every day as long as I can remember (and long before it was hip). I love that these hats have come back and that us ladies can wear them too Score!

    Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Retail Design Diva!

    Love a good newsboy cap. Brings out the “working hard” while “keeping it cool” look in everyone who dares to rock it.

    The man crossing the street in Milan is my fave!

    What I’m noticing is the return of the hat. It finishes a silhouette beautifully.

    I didn’t know the right English name! It’s my favourite winter hat. Rei Shito is the best, I love her style.

    Im always thing flat cap, but I think one needs a certain elegance and grace to pull it off, otherwise you just end up like Madonna in her country living days. ((Shudder)) x

    I hate correcting anyone, but I wear a newsboy almost every day. Technically, all but the first aren’t newsboy hats (and the first isn’t a standard issue newsboy–it’s one of the variants). They’re “driving caps” or “flatcaps”. A newsboy or gatsby is characterized by 6-8 panels sewn together with a button at the top center, a bit of extra fabric, and a brim (which is sometimes long). It’s sort of like the 3 Stooges era golf hat, except slightly smaller.

      I’m currently on a quest to find “my perfect cap,” something along the lines of the flatcap worn by Edward VIII, or the cap George Clooney wears in Leatherheads… in essence an Ivy/driving/flat cap that has the plumpness of a newsboy but without the button and panels. I’ve been in shops and searched the web and so far all the flatcaps I’ve come across are very trim–It seems to me they aren’t as generously cut as they were back in the day. Any thoughts?

    I’m a hat person and I wear this style or a variation thereof often, wether they’re “in style”or not and along with my fave wide leg pants? It’s nice to see them back I again though.

    Dumb question; how do you know if you can pull it off or not? I have one but am afraid to wear it.
