Cashmere Ivy Cap

Groundhog Day 2K10 ~ most local groundhogs did not see their shadow today! However, the most famous groundhog of all Punxsutawney Phil saw his and historically that means 6 more weeks of winter! Diehard golfers here in New England will try to play regardless. I thought this cap would be a nifty accoutrement (along with a nip or two of blackberry brandy) for those chilly days out on the course!

Cashmere Ivy Cap from J. Peterman Co.

It didn't take the Aristocracy long in the 19th century to note that these caps looked good on working class men throughout Britain and Ireland. So it began popping up on their well-coiffed heads on their estates and on golfers teeing off at St. Andrews. The Italians said you haven't seen anything yet. Or words to that effect. Italian Ivy Cap (No. 2566). Luxuriously soft 100% pure Italian wool woven in Italy by the renowned Loro Piana mill. The wool is also given a special treatment that provides resistance to rain and wind. Other feature is a quilted insulated lining for added warmth and fold up quilted earflaps. You won't find this one on everyone's head! Men's sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL. Imported. Color: Black. Price: $138. Go to www.jpetterman.com to order yours today!
