Because every man loves options, and some of us need those options laid out in front of us with a variety of styles and price points, we give you The Range: a meditation on one garment every man should own, served up 10 ways.
No matter where you live, the knit cap is a staple.
First and foremost: they keep your ears warm. But nowadays, they can also be quite the statement piece.
Buy one knit cap and consider it your signature style for the rest of the season. Sure, it can be argued that a man can buy a few options — different colors and textures for different outfits, etc. — but if we’re speaking frankly: Who really does that? No one. So it’s important to get it right.
That’s why we like to keep things simple, which means — sorry kids — no pom-poms here. Instead, the hats you’ll find below can work in all kinds of settings. That means classic cable-knits and easy watch caps: subtle pieces to complement your outfit, not distract from it.
