Hats are great accessories for men. They can do so much including add style to an otherwise uninteresting ensemble or at the very least, cover up a bad hair day or no hair day. Especially in the fall, when the weather can get chilly, a hat can help you stay warm so you don’t have to wear thick outwear or tons of layers. Whether you are sporty, dapper, street, or classic, if you’re looking for a way to add something special to your wardrobe and of course stay warm, we’ve got your head covered with the best hats of the season.
Missoni Wool Beanie
Missoni makes such cool, unique items in their signature Italian fabrics. There really isn’t another brand that can parallel its concept and style. One of their best offerings for the current season is this black and white marbled wool beanie. Sporty, but still cool, it features a strong red stripe to tie the look together.
Saint Laurant Wool Striped Beanie
Saint Laurant’s striped beanie is made from wool in Italy. It’s designed to keep you warm but not too hot. The classic pattern looks great with anything but can really give an extra edge to an all or mostly black ensemble, preventing it from looking too drab.
Duke & Winston Signature Logo Hat
Philadelphia street wear brand Duke & Winston is named after an adorable bulldog named Duke. Proving casual doesn’t have to mean sloppy, its signature logo hat has a slightly faded look, made of a vintage pre-washed cotton twill fabric. It also features an antique brass side buckle. The olive green color is also the perfect shade for fall.
Norse Projects – Melange Herringbone 5 Panel
If you’re looking for a stepped up alternative to the traditional baseball cap, this is it. Made of Japanese herringbone fabric by Danish company Norse Projects, this cap adds a little twist to causal.
Albertus Swanepoel Trapper Hat
This hunt lodge chic trapper hat doesn’t only look good, but it is also incredibly functional and can be worn even through the cold winter months. Made of nylon and lined with faux fur (so it’s cruelty free), it will keep your head and ears nice and toasty.
Brixton Hooligan Driving Cap
You won’t look like a hooligan in Brixton’s Hooligan driving cap and you won’t need a license to wear it either. This grey and black herringbone cap would look great with a sweater or you can even wear it to dress up a hoodie or long sleeved t-shirt. Incredibly well-priced, it even comes in a range of sizes all the way up to extra large.
Rag & Bone Hackman Fedora
Rag & Bone’s Hackman Fedora will help you put the “hip” in “hipster,” but won’t make you feel like a fashion hack. Made of black wool, the possibilities for this classically designed hat are endless.
Goorin Brothers Fedora
Goorin Brothers is an old school haberdashery established back in 1895. But just because this brand is older than your great grandfather, doesn’t mean their style hasn’t evolved. Take its Mick Bloom Cotton Fedora for example; it’s completely modern, crisp, and fresh. Featuring a light blue fabric and classic navy and red stripe ribbon, it has a small metal logo medallion, completing the look. Pair with any kind of white shirt.
John Varvatos Reverse Print Knit Hat
This knit hat by John Varvatos is perfect for the weekends. Made of luxurious silk and cashmere, this vintage inspired accessory has a subtle stripe printed on the back of the fabric, so it looks a little faded. It’s also available in brown as well as black. Combine with anything corduroy or denim and you’ve got yourself a finished look.
Suede Stüssy Cap
This hat is street wear meets sophistication by Stüssy. Available in black as well as white suede, it features the brand’s signature logo subtly stitched in the same color. Made in the USA, it also has an adjustable leather strap for complete comfort.
