Men's Hats for Style

Updated on August 23, 2017

Men's Hats for Cool Guys!

I know how hard it is to find a hat with sex appeal! A hat that makes you look cool and yet keeps you warm. Men's winter hats come in all shapes and sizes and the one you choose matters!

When it's cold outside we all search the back of our drawers hoping to find a warm hat that isn't going to make us look like total dorks!

My wife has often stopped short in her steps, looked at me and howled with laughter because of my hat, or begged me to take it off before we went into the next shop, or bank, or anywhere - why? Because I looked ridiculous!

So I got to thinking that adventure travelers need to look cool right? But they also have to keep warm! So how do you know which hat to choose? Here's where my lens will come in very handy.

Read about how to knit a hat here for those of you with a need to learn a new skill!

That's it folks, simple, this page is about winter hats for men! So you'd be advised to have a look here before buying.

Winter Hat Options.. - Looking Cool and Staying Warm ! This is great advice.

Men's Winter Hats - that keep your ears warm

I have picked out a hat that I really like here, but if you click on any one of these you will be taken straight to where you can find many other similar designs.

It's warm, quality, good size. 21 out of a possible 22 people gave this hat 4 or 5 stars in the Amazon rating.


Does a Hat Really Keep You Warm?

It is a popular idea that you lose more heat from your head than elsewhere, but it’s not true. No it’s just a popular myth.

You do however need to wear a hat in the cold weather, but only because it is one way of helping to keep your whole body warm – just like wearing trousers, for example.

So what happens when it is cold outside?

When the weather’s cold your body senses this and your brain takes a few measures to protect you or at least to protect your vital organs.

The hands and feet, however, are expendable so the brain orders the blood vessels there to become narrower and give off less heat. That’s why you often look pale and your fingers can turn white when you are really cold.

If you start to feel cold inside you will also start to shiver to get some movement into your muscles and warm them up.

Inevitably, whatever comes in to contact with cold air, icy cold rain, or snow is going to become cold. That’s why we are sensible enough to cover our bodies with clothing. If we went around stripped to the waist, but wearing a hat we’d still become pretty cold.

Despite that knowledge some of us still go around dressed warmly, but with our poor heads exposed to everything the winter can throw at us. It doesn’t make much sense.

If you cover your head properly that will keep it warm. If you aren’t losing heat from your head your whole body will be warmer and the brain won’t have to close down the blood vessels in your fingers.

Keep everything covered, including your head, and you’ll be warm on the coldest winter day.

Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing – or lack of it.

"Eat the Hat!" - "Now you're taking me alliterally!"

Smartwool Merino Mens Cuffed Beanie Hat

Merino wool is the softest warmest wool ever. I don't usually like wool - it irritates me, so I have to go for either cashmere or Merino. That's how sensitive my skin is!!

  • 100% Smartwool/Merino beanie style hat
  • Regulates temperature
  • Breathable
  • Reversible jersey knit construction with contrast color interior. Double layer design with clean finish seams for bulk free fit.

"I'm delighted to be back in business with my old friends. I don't know if the pants still fit, but I know the hat will."

Does your Hat work for you?

My wife's dad wore a hat, but not to keep out the cold, it was an indoor hat. It was a very tall white hat that had to be starched into shape. He was a chef.

I was wondering how many of you wear a hat at work as part of a uniform maybe.

Please leave and comment if you do and tell us what work you do. Do you think it suits you? What is it for? And do you like wearing it?

      My husband has a couple of hats he wears when he's working in the yard or walking Daisy on a sunny day. Don't tell him, but he really looks like Old McDonald when he's wearing his straw hat, riding the mower. I love it, though, and it protects him from those harmful rays.

      @Merrci: I'm afraid we need umbrellas and wellies he -or even waders! Hats would get soggy in no time at all. It's been shocking! Thanks for your visit.

      Yes, I'm a builder and roofer so a hat is absolutely essential. Wouldn't be without my soviet style one.

      @sousababy: I'm wondering whether that's a silly question really! I think I was thinking about people who wear uniforms like nurses and such. Thanks for your answer!

      Well, no, it's a heated environment - of course on special holidays I might (Halloween, Easter, Christmas).
