Susan’s jockey cap has six plates and is made of either leather or pleather.
The plates are aligned as they are in this clipping from a 60s Simplicity jockey cap pattern.
It is much like this vintage jockey cap, but with a shorter bill and without the belt.
Susan wears the cap askew to the left so we can not see the top button.
Again, I do not have a color reference. I instinctively imaged it as a maroon leather, and it appears to be about as dark as Carole Ann Ford’s hair (near-black brown) or Susan’s collar (black).
Whether black or a near-black maroon or brown, it must be very dark.
