Morning Stroller Suit for a Sunday walk in the city

The weather has turned more September-like and once again it is time to wear the Morning Stroller suit and Homburg hat. The black single breasted jacket, black waistcoat, wingcollar and white-dotted blue bowtie are perfect attire for a Sunday stroll in the city; on paved streets, parks and museums.

A lazy stroll in the city includes breaks on benches - enjoying the present

Handmade caps from TheTitfer

I have for the past couple of years had but a single cap that I use for my country attire; the Bond style flat cap from Pakeman, Catto & Carter in a brown-greenish Fulbrook tweed; I like the generous cut and the long peak and the shape has only improved over the course of time.
I do have more caps (flat and newsboy style) in my wardrobe,  but none of them proved to fit me properly in daily use.
So naturally I have been on the lookout for more perfect caps in different cloths and colours.
And just recently I came across Paul Booth from Kempston, Bedfordshire; a trained tailor and cutter with more than 25 years of experience in making hats and caps.

Caps from TheTitfer - a Tam O Shanter and a 1920s cap in a generous fit.
