Hats, Gloves, Scarves. It’s Time to Soften Up Winter’s Edge with Knitwear.


“I grow old/I grow old/ I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled…” Or words to that effect.

More in my experiment with knit layering. It’s a very comfortable way of dressing, if not exactly waterproof. (Why are my trousers so long? The were cut with a very slight break… hmmm….) At any rate, a grey knit scarf, grey cable knit cardigan (over a chocolate-brown knit polo sweater), grey Donegal tweed trousers and brown suede shoes with a mini-lug rubber tread. Brown leather gloves and topping it all off, a brown herringbone tweed flat cap.

I like a flat cap for convenience. It slips easily into my shoulder bag and can be left there for those days when you suddenly find you need some headgear. Tweed is also, by its nature, water-resistant. This cap is by Hanna Hats and comes highly recommended.

  1. Your cap is terrific and I will pass the resource onto our son, who wears these caps all the time. You would fit in perfectly on the streets of Florence–the men dressed sooooo nicely and accessorized as you have here.
