What kind of cap is it that Leon and Mathilda wear in the movie "Leon" (called "The Professional" in the U.S.)?

Also, there is a similar version of this cap in the movie “American Pie 2”, worn by the character Finch.

isn’t it a beanie?

I’d call it a watch cap. Same thing really but its more of a military term which suits the character.

Hmm.. not exactly. I believe the cap is Middle Eastern and has a specific name.. I think maybe it’s a kufi.

I agree with Lightlyseared. It looks more like a watch cap than a Kufi.

Definitely a rolled up watch cap or beanie
