We normally don’t recommend wearing a baseball cap during the week unless you’re within a 100-yard radius of a ballpark, doing yard work or a celebrity trying to sneak in a quiet lunch. But there’s one time we’ll make an exception: when your baseball team has won the World Series.

That means that this year, today only, San Francisco Giants ball caps are fair game with everything from chambray to Italian wool. You’ve earned it—by keeping the faith through all the slumps, by your gut and determination during the extra innings of fried appetizer platters, and mostly by no hard work of your own—just don’t think you can get away with the hat for the rest of the week.

Coincidentally, it’s also the only day of the year you can wear an orange bow tie.
