Since we got the obligatory questionable pun about “no cap” out of the way in the headline for this article, let’s get straight into why headwear is a wardrobe staple.
The history of hats is thought to go back as far as 3,200 BC and since that time they continue to be used as protection from the weather. From baseball players to dads on holiday, spring and summer are the times when everyone starts reaching over to their cap collection more regularly while fall and winter call for the fluffy knitted beanies to come out.
As with any accessory, the right piece of headwear can either make or break your outfit. You can prove you are a streetwear OG with a Supreme 5 panel, pairing a baseball cap with formal wares can tip the scale more towards casual than smart, and a colorful beanie can bring a pop of color to dull winter days.
Bringing together some of the best men’s hats on the market, from the traditional baseball cap styles to fluffy shearling options, check out our favorite below.
