    z80,
    Oh yes, lots of them, there is a big one in the ГУМ opposite the Kremlin.

    nekojin17,
    Not sure what a beanie is but a traditional Russian hat would be a шапка.

    And шапка HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST DODGY LOOKING RUSSIAN WORD THERE IS....at least if you look at it from a English written point of view!

    ...

    a beanie is one of those things that a Jewish person wheres... its kind of a rude term for it... Catholic bishops and the pope where them too.

    ..No

    That would be a yarmulke for the Jews and a skullcap for the Catholics.
    They look the same but it's not. Do you call the communion wafer a Triscuit?

    What a Jewish person wears is ермолка or "кипа" (not sure about how much official is the latter).

    Then, I hope, you don't expect Russian bishops wear such caps? I'm afraid they don't sell them in Russian shops (or at least it is not very popular article).

    Russia is mainly Russian Orthodox. Russian Orthodox bishops wear crowns and such. Catholic bishops wear the "beanies."

    1. OK, I don't know why you quoted the word skullcap since it exists in the English language. It is what the Pope wears. That is the word for them. Remember when he was in Israel and it blew off his head? What did they call it in the news again? Beanie? No. Yarmulke? No. Skullcap? Yes.
    2. You said "Catholic bishops and the pope where them too" in reference to a beanie. Now you're saying the bishops don't wear them, but something a little bigger. Will it be a ten-gallon cowboy hat in your next reply?

    the gum is a rip off, and they don't really sell much russian stuff in there online store ether. Not really a state department store any more anyway.

    I'm still looking and haven't yet found a good russian online clothing shop.

    I've often wondered, is it actually possible to fly wearing one of those propellor-equipped hats? Or not?

    With the help of an airplane, yes.
