This hat, while appropriate for any costumed use you might have, is also a great general purpose hat that can become a part of your everyday wear. This drivers cap, also known as a flat cap, has been made from a wool-blend fabric and features a herringbone stitching. You will buy the Herringbone Steampunk Driver Cap because it goes well with your costume, but you will keep wearing it because it is a great hat in general.
