When it comes to ways to reuse old newspapers, you really can't beat a bouquet of paper roses. As to whether you put them in an old aluminum can or not is up to you.
Remember when newsboy caps were all the rage? Yeah, me neither. After their initial burst of popularity, they seem to have fallen a bit by the wayside. Not entirely, mind you, but they're certainly not as ubiquitous as they once were--that position is still being filled by the dratted fedora--and that kind of makes them cool again, in my humble little opinion.
Of course, it probably helps that there's a lot of variation on the newsboy theme. As near as I can tell, all a newsboy cap really requires is a short bill. Every other feature of the cap is pretty much up for debate, as the contents of this post will undoubtedly prove.
This green newsboy cap is pretty classic in its composition; short bill, rounded body, paneled sides and a button on top. But I like how the patches are topstitched together, giving the cap an interestingly structured look.
...Remember how I said there were a lot of variations on the newsboy theme? Yeah. This goldenrod slouchy newsboy cap is ample proof of that.
To be honest, I think this denim cap is more of a kepi than a newsboy. Or maybe even a little bit of an engineer cap. But I must admit that it is a rather pretty little cap, and reversible, too.
But it's this last newsboy cap that is my far-and-away favorite:
I like how it's like a modified baseball cap in how closely it fits to the skull but still looks like a newsboy cap. The paisley-patterned button is a nice touch, too.
And on that note, see you Friday!
