The nicest flatcap... in the world!

Looking to give my dad the nicest tweed or wool/cashmere flatcap money can buy. I'm talking about "By Special Appointment to HRH..." level of nice-ness, not "Kangol makes some pretty slick lids" level of niceness.

My father has had a succession of Filene's Basement/Marshalls/Century 21 etc. flatcaps. I'd like to get him a very, very nice tweed or wool/cashmere flatcap, so that he can traipse around the Moors (or possibly the Upper West Side) in the height of classic style.
Again, to be clear, he has plenty of hats at his disposal, and an endless number of pretty good hats can be had for $20-30 bucks around town. I'm looking for a bona fide luxury hat (of a casual sportsman sort) worn by nobility since 1876 or some such and crafted in the Hebrides by old ladies. No tam o' shanters, please!
