The Thieves Guild hood can be worn with additional headgear, and I've tested wearing it with the Archmage's Robes, Vokun/Morokei and an Ebony Helmet.

I couldn't understand why this only worked with the Thieves Guild Hood until I looked at my character: the Thieves Guild Hood resembles more a skullcap/coif and can be worn underneath any other headgear.

I'm looking for similar skullcap/coif headgear (un-enchanted) so I can place my own enchantments on it. Is there anything else like this in all of Skyrim?

My end-goal is to wear simultaneously two headgears with custom enchantments.

Wow, I didn't even realize that this was possible. Thanks! –  spugsley Jan 28 '12 at 20:54
    
Yeah, but it takes some experimentation as you have to equip them in the correct order. It also works for Archmage's Robes + Vokun + Thieves Guild Hood –  user19087 Jan 28 '12 at 21:34
    
This trick works with the Dark Brotherhood (Shrouded) headgear as well, but it comes with enchantments too. –  Brant Jan 28 '12 at 23:45

Although as you pointed out graphically this looks OK, I still suspect it could be a bug. Can anyone weigh in on whether this (allowing certain headgear to be worn simultaneously with other headgear) is a bug or not? –  Andrew Moylan Jan 29 '12 at 0:00
    
For the record, I just found out this also works with the Thieves Guild Master's Hood as well. –  user19087 Jan 31 '12 at 3:46

You can wear a falmer helmet and a circlet at the same time, with custom enchantments on both.

Indeed, and combining a Falmer Helmet with a Circlet enables one to further buff alchemy for silly-strong equipment in the alchemy+enchanting+smithing loop. –  brymck Jan 29 '12 at 17:03

Is this the only piece? Those Falmer helmets are ugly. –  Iszi Jan 29 '12 at 18:10
    
Only piece that I know of that's unenchanted. –  z - Jan 29 '12 at 18:35
    
The "Falmer Helmet of Peerless Repugnance". I'm not sure if the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood headgear is a bug, but the Falmer Helmet trick most likely is. –  user19087 Jan 29 '12 at 22:40
    
just install the hide helmet mod and you'll be fine :P –  z - Jan 29 '12 at 22:49
