Howdy,

One size may fit all but darn uncomfortable.

I just needed a warm hat for winter.

I used to just put up the hood but with these masks.....

So all these beanies are darn tight and my head is not all that huge.

 

I found Lamood where they sell big hats.

 

And measuring my size was near the smallest of the biggies.

The beanie came today. Light and not tight.

Warm but the real cold is not here yet.

They have a variety of styles....

If one size dont fit YOU give em a try.

They seem ready for returns. Interesting as most make ya dig 

for return info.

So far so good.

Best

CR

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

 

I realize people keep changing the language, but the decision 10 years or so back (whenever the hell it happened) to call a watch cap, or a stocking cap, or a tuque a "beanie" . That's stupider than calling your shotgun a shotty. and you got to go some to be stupider than calling your shotgun a shotty.

Watch cap

Knit Cap or Hat

Toboggan 

Stocking cap
These are the names I have heard them called all my life. Now it seems they are called:

Beanies

Skull caps

Skullies

 

Regardless, I can’t wear them if there’s static in the air (dry and cold). When I take them off my hair goes all crazy and my heads itches something awful. 
 

BUT, I have found the best fitting watch caps at Surplus Stores. They are snug enough to stay on but not too snug.

Howdy,

Beware the beanie meanies.

Im pretty sure the seller called it a beanie.

Seems like a watch cap should go on my Elgin pocket watch.

 

Ive been spending hours peeling ice off the driveway.

Like its superglued to the pavement.

Three neighbors have helped.

Accepted beer in payment.

All happy.

Best

Ski cap is what we called it back in the day. Knit cap is what I hear mostly Navy guys call it a watch cap.

Excellent, Chief!:wub:

 

I've been wearing them for quite a while. Have two currently, a dark blue one that given to me last winter for a Christmas present by a resident here. It's the one I wear the most. The other is a commercial logo'ed one that I inherited years ago. There is a third that my wife got me years ago, but the knit is pretty tight and is uncomfortable to wear for long periods, but it is super warm;):blush:
