4 Types of Hats Every Man Should Own

If the only hat you have is that old baseball cap from college, it's time to step up your game. Here are four essential menswear pieces, plus how to style them.

Hat wearing has witnessed a precipitous decline, but surely a hat is one of the most intoxicating additions to a man’s wardrobe. However, owning a hat is not as potent as wearing it right. Whether you sport your hat with poise or reluctance goes a long way in defining your guise.

Flaunt your hat with the ultimate confidence and make it your signature. Wear the same hat until people associate you with it and it becomes you. Also, it goes without saying; wear a hat fit for your proportion. Big hats for big heads! Let’s take a look at some classic styles of hats:


A man in a Fedora is a trend setter. Donning a Fedora evokes classic style and lends an air of mystery to the wearer. Worn by prohibition era gangsters, traditionally the brim of the fedora is inclined down in the front and turns up slightly at the back. Wear a fedora with a suit and a tie and look downright audacious.

The Panama

Associated with tropical weathers, this stylish traditional brimmed straw hat is timeless. Panama enhances the look of the wearer and becomes a statement piece. Celebrate the vibrancy of summer and try Paul smith’s rugged weaved panama with swim trunk on the beach for a ravishing summer-perfect feel.

Baseball Cap

Every man has worn a baseball cap at some point in their lives. Be it a sports memorabilia or a discreet mature rendition, a baseball cap is the most versatile cap and looks good with almost anything. Style Tip; Wear your baseball cap with an unstructured blazer.

The Beanie

Accommodating comfort with style, Beanies are coming in more fancy fabrics than their woolly counterparts and are increasingly gaining momentum. Functional, timeless and simple, a beanie is a versatile choice. Sport it with a cardigan, blazer or a pea coat and keep your safe and warm in style.
