ok i'm back. i remembered my dad had one from LL Bean and found one there (http://cdn.llbean.com/products/mens/23137/images/L23137_Charcoal.jpg)
they call it a "touring cap," not having luck finding a pattern with that name.

My grandpa has a whole hat box full. I permamently borrowed the brown one, and he wears the gray one.

I usually call them "flat caps" "old man hats" or "cabbie caps."

There are also Jeep caps which are basically a beanie cap with a brim.

Like this...

i saw that ann norling one, but was hoping not to have to buy a pattern. i found this one (http://hometown.aol.com/lffunt/guycap.html) and started it last night, i'm about 1/2 way done. we'll see how it comes out in crochet. i like it so far.

thanks everybody!!! :)
