On my side of the globe, the crisp air of fall has already got me chilled to the bone. Not complaining. Actually thrilled. So much so, that I am sounding off as if I were telling the world of some ground-breaking news… news of what just hit the press. People… it’s time! The weather has dictated their return! And I could not be more please to see them make their appearances – for they are BY FAR one of the most enticing and distinguished looks of the season. “What is it?” – you say? With a burly roar I’m screaming… “EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it! The newsboy cap is back!!”
Alright… alright… alright! Not the reveal you expected? Hey – with me, there is an unyielding appreciation for the little things. I love presentation and I am a sucker for those that are well-dressed. Especially those who are confident in their clothing, have a stylish edge and they comprehend the importance of fit and color. It is inevitable — they have an aura that oozes swagger! Nonetheless… there is something about a man rocking a newsboy cap that is bound to capture my attention.
The newsboy cap, generally associated with the newsboys of the early 1900’s, has evolved and now open to a much broader audience. Know by a variety of names – cabbie, baker boy, apple cap… even eight panel – this cap is incredibly flattering on all who don it! Comprised of a full rounder body with a stiff peak, the newsboy can be constructed in a variety of fabrics, even leather. It’s close cousin, the flat cap, is a show stopper as well – the only difference being the full flat panel on the top of the head versus the pie shaped panels and finishing button.
So… what is it about the caps, eh?!
One word: dapper!
Ladies, the intent is not to be biased – for I know that we too can rock these caps with flair! But… BUT, when I see a man wearing this cap – and he has got his look pulled together – haha… there is this essence, this stateliness – for lack of better words – the look is both handsome and dignified! Whew… you know how some things can just take you there? Well… this is it!
Perhaps it is just me, especially since I am attracted to the look, but I find that the caps are incredibly popular – worn by actors, athletes, musical artists (cough, cough… Common) and a plethora of us “every-day” folk!. The beauty… each person wearing it in such a way that it appears to be monogrammed with their personal style.
And… since I am so fond of the look, I bet you can’t even imagine how I feel when my husband pulls his collection out of his fall/winter storage bin and preps it for the wearing. YAWZA!
Enough of the babble. Leaving it at this.
If you own one cap or some — FANTASTIC! Build your collection for they truly add to your charm… and because I said so! If you have yet to give this look a go… consider yourself now in the know and RUN to your favorite retailer or your “go-to” on-line shop and make a purchase.
Need some help? Well… I am only an email away and you know that I would love to offer an opinion!
