Men in Ball Caps

Wigens Cashmere Ball Cap at - ImageThere have been ongoing debates (and some full on battles) in the world of hats regarding baseball caps for quite some time — are they “serious” enough to be considered real hats? Should grown-ups even wear ball caps (other than to games)? Can they ever be actual fashion statements or forever relegated to teens and musicians who too frequently wear them sideways and backwards?

I don’t know how I missed a post called A Grown Up Baseball Hat at the blog By George, I Found It!, but it cites the JB Stetson caps at Hartford York as those that can help make the transition from being just a kid in a cap to a sophisticated man with style.

It’s certainly true that ball caps are no longer simply the “cloth baseball hat of either [a man’s] undergraduate alma mater or his son’s little league team.” If you look at the ball caps we offer, you’ll note we carry exclusive items (see the Victor Osborne Ball Cap No. V05) as well as caps from famous designer brand names like Borsalino — in addition to John B. Stetson, 1333 Minna, Goorin and Eugenia Kim.

Every material you can think of is offered in ball caps, from leather to cashmere, cotton and woolen tweed and you can even get winter cap with hidden earflaps (that’s the Wigens cap shown here).

I guess the debate can now be deemed officially over. Fashionable ball caps are no longer the exception, and if you choose to wear yours back to front, I might shudder gently, but I won’t say a thing.

Thanks for reading,
