It’s prime time for caps to shine.
With streetwear leading industry trends these past few years, caps are finding their way into men’s wardrobes more than ever. And for good reason – it’s easy to style, practical to wear and life-saving on days when your barnet just won’t seem to behave.
Though predominantly offered by streetwear brands like Supreme and Stussy and or sports labels like Nike and Adidas, luxury brands from Louis Vuitton to Gucci have also been releasing more caps in recent seasons. The summer season, in particular, is prime time for caps to shine (did you catch that rhyme?) – along with your boxer-short shorts and sunnies.
We’ve picked out 13 caps including a mix of baseball caps, bucket hats and beanies to top off your summer fits below.
