What Your #Menswear Baseball Cap Says About You

Caps

There are plenty of perfectly good reasons to wear a baseball cap.

Driving a convertible. Watching a ball game. Premature balding.

But we’ve been noticing a sharp rise in guys wearing more #menswear-y versions—without a hint of support for a sports team—even more so, with the recent rise in popularity of the five-panel cap and floral prints. And it got us thinking about what it all means. So we’ve gone ahead and taken stock of all the nonstandard baseball caps out there to give you a better idea of what your choice in billed topper is projecting to the world.

So, without further ado: what your #menswear baseball cap says about you, according to Kempt.»

The Spotted Oxford

Blogger-favorite Unis has just dropped some new fall/winter offerings—including the already legendary Gio pant in a few autumnal colors—but this polka-dotted oxford cloth button-down is what caught our eye.

The ’60s collegiate shirt de rigueur has become ubiquitous amongst today’s menswear-savvy (chances are high you’re wearing one while reading this), and we’ve even begun to see a few plaid iterations, but this is the first time we’ve seen the sort of pattern reserved for silk ties on oxford cloth. And it’s a welcome departure.

It might be the perfect shirt for attempting the invisi-tie.
