The ascot cap is a very unique flat hat- with distinct differences from the ivy and driver caps you see every day. But after understanding what it is and how to wear it correctly, you'll have yet another extremely stylish and unique hat to add to your wardrobe.
The ascot cap is a flat cap made from a single panel of wool felt that is molded around a round form. The ascot hat has a very rounded look due to both the shape and the fact that there are no seams in the crown. Most ascots simply have one single color, usually earthen or muted in tone. It can be made from other materials including leather and cotton or wool fabrics in an array of patterns.
First of all, the ascot cap material is harder than other low profile flat caps. It is usually made of a single panel of wool felt, while the Newsboy and Gatsby hats are made from 8 panels stitched together, and ivy and driver hats are made from three sewn-together panels. The ascot is a little less conventional, traditional and perhaps tired than most of the other flat hats you see today. See this ascot by Stacy Adams.
The ascot hat should be worn with a stylish sweater vest and collared shirt, a suit or other upscale clothing. A nice suit vest and shirt combination with dress pants always looks great with your ascot hat.
Some of the most popular types of Ascot hats are made of traditional wool felt. However, some of the more unique and authentic looks make use of more modern fabrics. The corduroy ascot cap (called the Guinness) is one of the nicest, new styles around.

The Royal Enclosure is where the Queen and other members of the royal family sit. This exclusive enclosure is an invite-only area. Membership is strictly-regulated and to gain entry you must be nominated by a current member and make an application to the Royal Enclosure office. The dress code for each enclosure is different, so bear this in mind before booking.
The Village Enclosure is where gentlemen can dress in a more contemporary sartorial style and this area is popular with young professionals who may choose designers such as Paul Smith over traditional Savile Row tailors.
Flat caps are sometimes called ascot caps, but there are specific structural differences that disqualify using these terms interchangeably. The primary difference is that ascot caps are much harder, rounder, and not lined with silk or satin. 59ce067264
