Flat-cap surfer.

clothcap_surfer_web-I was flicking through my sketchbooks for inspiration when I came across this drawing, one that slipped through the net last year. This gentleman’s sophisticated boots, and flat cap interested me the most I remember.

The distinctive herringbone pattern adorning his flat-cap has been around long before anyone started surfing the web; examples made from horsehair have been discovered in Ireland that are over 2000 years old!

Herringbone aficionados may want to take a peek at another drawing here
