Source for a Mike Nesmith type wool hat?

I did web searches for wool hats and come up with lots with ear flaps but none that resemble the type worn by Monkee Mike Nesmith.

Anyone know what this specific wool hat is called?

I was thinking that shouldn't be that hard to find until I remembered (vaguely) that it had buttons on it.

Thanks but I live in an exit town. The only thing most women know around here is how make babies and how to hold their liquor.

First, I need to know the name of this type of knit hat.

In the beginning, the hat did not have buttons.  That was during the second season.

personally, I'd stay away from those.

Not trying to be funny Darren but the hat looks to me like it may have been a ladies hat with that pom pom on top of it? At least that's what it looks like to me??? Huh

Without commenting on any aspects of building or wearing a hat with buttons, I do think it would make it more recognizable as a Mike Nesmith hat.

Hey, Darren - here's a link to someone who knitted one and they posted a free pattern! Scroll down to see it finished in green (not the first one) with the pom pom - looks identical.

Nah, the one with buttons was rarely seen.  Never cared for it.  Go with the basic.  You'll know it's a Nesmith.

I think it's a ski hat.  And BTW, men's ski hats do have pom poms as well, Billy.

Men not only wear them, they knit them!  Here's some my uncle made for my kids last Xmas.

I actually have a pretty accurate one in my dresser, but it's blue and it doesn't have the pom pom. I've moved on to only wearing my fedora in the winter time.
