Very interesting visor info. One learns something new every day.
The field grey in the Atwood caps is distinct, of lesser quality trikot than in an authentic cap. Also, the width of the cap band is a dead give away, as well as the stitch or staple through the center line of the band/crown, which is also characteristic of how cheaply these were made. Why the Atwood hats are seen as some pinnacle of cap making is really a mystery to me.
They were everywhere when I was a kid, and easily spotted at the time.
Bruce is an excellent man to deal with, I must get in touch with him soon and ask him to find me some nice black woolens for my collection.
Thanks. Chiefly I am just old and have seen too much.
Do buy my collection, and you can have as many old black clothes as you desire.

I recall that Bob H generously donated an SS Alteste from his collection which Nick (NTZ) dissected several years ago.
I will see if I can find the pics from the old thread.
