    Which Winter Hat Should You Custom?

    To wear a hat or not to wear a hat? That is the question that has plagued style-conscious men for decades. There was a time when donning headgear was as common as putting on underwear and shoes. Today, however, wearing a hat is a statement, an outward declaration of your sartorial intent, so it’s no wonder their popularity has waned over the years.

    Still, this is rather unfair, particularly when you consider that a hat, like any other winter accessory, such as a scarf or gloves, serves a practical purpose as well as an aesthetic one. The right one will keep you warm and dry in inclement weather and, if you choose wisely, look damn good at the same time. How, then, do you determine which is right for your head? Below, you’ll find a handy guide to aid you in your quest.

    But first, some basics to keep in mind before you decide on the type of hat for you.

    Start simple:
    Forget your shoes. If you’re wearing a hat, it’s going to be the first thing someone notices, so let it do the talking, so to speak. If you’re new to wearing a hat, keep the rest of your outfit plain and easy, and work your way up to that tie-dyed fleece you’ve got your eye on.

    Smart vs casual:
    If you subscribe to the high-low school of fashion thought, keep in mind that there are limits to what you can get away with when wearing a hat. For example, a dress hat will, objectively speaking, look ridiculous with jeans. Formal tailoring, on the other hand, is a perfect match.

    Size matters:
    If you have a big head, you’ll need a bigger hat, that much is true. But your head circumference will also dictate the styles you can get away with. Generally speaking, those on the smaller side suit baseball and trucker caps, while those with a larger head can wear all the trilbies and fedoras they please.

    Measure up:
    While we’re on the subject, the danger of buying a hat online is that you won’t necessarily know if it’ll fit until it turns up. As a rough guide, then, 54 (cm) is a small, 56 a medium and 58 a large.

    Short supplies:
    Similarly, your height will have some bearing on the type of hat you settle on. If you’re a little shorter in size, a hat can also add a few inches, but avoid anything with too wide a brim, which will swamp your frame.

    The flat cap
    Call it the Peaky Blinders effect, call it a nostalgic impulse to return to the elusive good old days, but the streets of Paris, New York and London seem to be overflowing with men in flat caps. OK, that’s a slight exaggeration, but sightings are increasingly common. Typically made of tweed or another tough wool, flat caps are a sensible choice in winter because they are inherently warm and hardwearing. Much like the fedora, there is a danger of appearing slightly old-timey in one, which is why this man’s decision to team his with a heritage check jacket feels like a calculated risk. Those who dare win.

    The bucket hat
    A bucket hat? In winter? Believe it. Yes, the floppy headgear is more usually associated with summer and 1990s rave culture and its wide brim is adapted for shielding your eyes from the sun’s rays, but it seems designers weren’t going to let a spot of chilly weather get in the way of its recent comeback. And who can blame them when it looks this good?

    The beanie
    About 1,000 years ago, but it didn’t gain traction until fishermen started wearing it to keep their noggins warm while on watch, which lends the hat its other name, the watch cap. It is relatively hard to go wrong with a beanie and these days, they even manage to look quite smart (see above). If you’re new to the world of men’s hats, this is an excellent jumping-off point. As a rule of thumb, your age will correlate to how slouchy you should go. Those who’ve bid a fond farewell to their twenties should use this gent’s ribbed beanie as their guide.

    The fedora
    Fedoras are a rarity these days. There was a time – we’ll call it the Mr-Humphrey-Bogart-in-Casablanca epoch – when a hat-less head was an improbable spectacle. Which is a shame, because a proper hat (and make no mistake, a fedora is a proper hat), distinguished by its wide brim, as opposed to the narrower-peaked trilby, seen here on the right, is a thing of unparalleled sophistication that lends certain ensembles dignity and gravitas. When it is worn correctly, that is. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to look like a sartorially stunted time traveller or Mr Johnny Depp circa 2002 in one, too. If you’re a neophyte, steer clear of more casual looks and opt for classic tailoring, as these gents have done. Cleverly, the sizeable lapels balance out the titfer’s equally sizeable peak. Take heed.
