Flat caps have had a renaissance in recent years, and for good reason. Not only are they warm in the winter, they’re classicly stylish and nearly any well-dressed man of any age can pull one off. Unlike the bolder fedora, make a softer statement that is easier and less intimidating to pair with a range of fall, winter and spring outfits.

05:10 How to Buy a Flat Cap
It’s important that it fits comfortably on your head.
The flat cap was originally made from tweed by the wool fabrics or sometimes even cotton and that reason you should stick with those materials. In my opinion, tweed is really the best material because it has the depth of color, it keeps you warm, it’s hard wearing, and it’s just a wonderful fabric. To learn more about tweed, please check out our in-depth tweed guide, here.
Sometimes, I’ve also seen denim caps or maybe leather caps or faux leather ones. I personally don’t think it’s a very advantageous look and I’d rather stick with the classic stuff. For that same reason, I stay away from patchwork flat hats or multi-pattern caps because they’re simply too loud. Just like a bold red or really loud blue and green hat. The good thing about tweed is usually it comes in more subdued colors that suit the fall-winter season. At the same time, the color composition of the fabric is comprised of a range of different ones so it’s very easy to combine it with other items in your wardrobe even though they don’t match and contrast. So whenever you find flat caps that are either too bold or come in small, medium, and large, I suggest you skip them unless you know that they will fit you and that you’ll like to wear them and they won’t just be a fashion item that you have to throw away after a season. if you want to learn more about flat caps and what brands you might want to buy please check out our full guide on the website here.
Last but not least, if you think a flat cap makes you look dated jus t browse the Internet and look for pictures of David Beckham or people like Brad Pitt which are obviously mainstream media celebrities and they can still pull it off and do so on a regular basis.
