The Summer Watch Cap

The watch cap makes for a pretty good style signature for younger gents—especially if you do most of your socializing outside—but it presents a real problem once April rolls around. At some point, it’s going be too warm to keep it going. This should buy you at least a few months. (Hat tip.) It’s made of a loose-knit linen, so it’ll breathe well enough to stand up to warmer weather and keep some of the sun off your scalp. Just be ready to take it off if you find yourself in a courthouse or a church. (We won’t speculate as to why.)
