Just because winter bitterness is descending doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style to stay warm. In fact, it’s best to embrace the weather and let your wardrobe do its job. Layering up is only half the solution as you can lose over 50% of your body heat through your head. To top off your bundling pieces with the right cap we’ve pulled together five favorites.
Poler + Brixton
A celebrated collaboration by like-minded brands Poler and Brixton, the six-panel Summit is perfect for fall, winter and maybe even early spring. The wool cap features a pull-down ear flap that ties in the front, allowing the user—and the elements—to decide which way to wear it. The interior features a custom topographic design detail. Find it in brown and black from both Poler or Brixton for $38.
The Birnir Mulit Beanie from the Scandinavian lords of design at Norse is pure style. With patterns taking over menswear right now this 100% wool beanie is the perfect topper to any outdoor outfit. Plus who doesn’t love the novelty of a bobble beanie? The Birnir Multi is available online from the Norse store for $56.
As classic as you can get, the heavyweight, roll-up Watch Cap is knit from 100% cotton. The beanie comes in a variety of bold and neutral hues, each accented with a little, embroidered raccoon. Like all Owner Operator gear, this toque is made in America. Find it online through Owner Operator for $35.
ACNE also hails from Scandinavia, the world’s capital of clean, minimalist design, which seems obvious when considering the Coe Hat. Made of 70% Angora rabbit wool and 30% nylon for stability, the cozy-looking beanie makes for a subtly luxe topper. Find one from ACNE online for $170.
As likely to be found on the head of A$AP Rocky in Harlem as a style blogger in Soho, the Marled Knit Cap from Rick Owens is a nice mix of classic and contemporary. The slim profile features a ribbed cuff and is made of a marled alpaca blend in Italy. The Marled Knit Cap sells online from Park & Bond for $345.
