What is a Newsboy Cap?

Newsboy caps are a soft, wedge-shaped cap usually made of fabric, usually tweed with a crown that flattens and snaps to the visor in front. The British call it a “flat cap.” The style originated in the U.K. over 400 years ago, and was popular among the dog-racing set. Famous wearers of this hat include Prince Charles.  From Hatatorium:  An Essential Guide for Hat Collectors, 3rd Edition.
