Don’t Get No Respect

And then there was this monstrosity. I’m pretty sure this cap is from the 1930s, but it’s the kind of thing you can see Rodney Dangerfield wearing in Caddy Shack and similar films. The chap who acted as my agent in buying it from the US, also a very well seasoned collector, was likewise of this opinion on its age. It’s made of a fantastic lightweight cotton, rayon or linen … very much a summer weight cap. Very floppy, unstructured, and way too big for my flour can! I’ve had to reattach the sweatband … good practice. The printed flags leave no doubt that this was a cap for playing golf!
