This is a great pattern for men and women. It's design will help keep the top of your head and ears nice and warm. It is perfect for a walk on a boardwalk on a chilly day while you enjoy the sights and check out all the princess yachts for sale a long the way. You may even find yourself the owner of one of those princess yachts for sale one day and then your cap will be great for the cold early mornings when you go out for a cruise.
