Maybe not the most practical but definitely the best looking hat!

Re: A Cap for Yachting

Hey rbc, I know you got a lot of grief on this post, but I've been looking at Captain's quarters uniforms and can't find any good pictures of their hats. Is there any way you could show me what the inside looks like? I'm interested in the sweat band, any labels that are in it, maybe any other stamps or identifiers. It would be a huge help!

Re: A Cap for Yachting

In the UK a ship’s captain is a paid officer, an unpaid person in charge is the skipper. Frankly I’d rather wear a dunces hat than be seen wearing anything remotely captain-like. But it seems to be the American Way - even the guy in charge of the scruffiest day-tripper boat is the captain. If I turned up to sail in a hat declaring me to be the captain my crew would think that I was going to a fancy dress party.

Re: A Cap for Yachting

I thought only Hollywood actors wore boat-captain's hats. Skippers usually wear baseball-style hats.

Oh, I didn't mind the ribbing. It was expected. Here's the picture. It should look very familiar to at least some former US service members. They are pretty nice caps. A bit more sturdy than a baseball cap.

Re: A Cap for Yachting

Having recently had a Basal Cell Carcinoma taken off the back of my ear, Iíve now transitioned to a broad brim hat.

Baseball caps are great when itís not summer.
Still need sunscreen on the ears and neck (and face if Iím being honest).

The joys of living in southern Aus!

Oh they're made by Kingform! That's a huge help. I've been looking everywhere and I even emailed them about it. Thank you so much!

A Cap for Yachting

Seriously. Nobody on a yacht wears a ď captains hat ď except a clown at a kids party.

Itís rather like wearing a t-shirt thatís says ď seriously I am a captain ď

Re: A Cap for Yachting

'Greek Fishermens' caps were very popular in SE Australia for a while in the 80s esp amongst the old wooden boat people. Maybe still are.

Baseball-hats are the identifier of style-amputated Americans and their sycophants. I honestly never saw a single person who looked better with a baseball-hat than without it. One should never wear a baseball-cap without proper baseball-pants and never outside a baseball-stadium.

Re: A Cap for Yachting

And they blow of your head every time you look up. You look up a lot on a sailing boat

I have a Tilley I wear in the summer, combined with a bandana to cover my neck (although gaiters are working pretty nicely these days). Greek fisherman's cap for shoulder season as it's warmer. Watch cap in cold weather.

I do have a t-shirt that says "I'm the Captain, Suck It Up" that my wife gave me. I wear it entirely for the entertainment value. I do think "Captain" is a bit pretentious and prefer "skipper" or "Dave."

I do have a white shirt with epaulets and shoulder boards. Some of my customers want me to dress the part - usually brokers at sea trials for particularly expensive boat. I think about showing up with an eye patch as well but that would probably not be good for business.

Ball caps are guaranteed head bangers.

If I remember the conversation correctly, Richard (Captains' Quarters Uniforms) custom orders his hats from Kingform. I don't think it's one of their standard products.
