American Trench Superfine Merino Watch Cap Beanie
Although American Trench is known for their great Trench coats, their men’s accessories are pretty cool. Their American Trench Superfine Merino Watch Cap Beanie ($65) is a classic nautical style watch cap, knit in Texas from superfine merino. It comes in three colors: overdyed natural indigo, latte (a melange of ivory, tan, and cream, goes great with navy and earth-toned outerwear), and a sophisticated crimson. The watch cap has a decent amount of stretch due to the 2×2 rib knit and fits a wide range of heads from small to big. The indigo colorway was hand dyed in Philadelphia using only natural indigo. Each hat is slightly different with subtle variations of deeper blue vs. a more sapphire indigo color.
The North Face Men’s Bones Beanie
The North Face Men’s Bones Beanie ($17+ on Amazon) is a durable, slim-fitting, 100% acrylic beanie that features an interior fleece lining that wraps around the circumference of the beanie like an ear band, providing added warmth on those cold days. Whether you’re hitting the mountain, shoveling your driveway you can’t go wrong with The North Face.
Everlane Merino Wool Beanie
The Everlane Merino Wool Beanie ($35) is the perfect beanie for you through the colder months. It’s made from 70% Merino Wool, and 30% Acrylic providing the perfect blend of warmth and breathability. It’s soft, smooth, warm, and simple enough that it goes with everything.
Under Armour Men’s Truck Stop Beanie
I actually own the Under Armour Men’s Truck Stop Beanie ($17 on Amazon) and I love it. Even though it’s made from 100% Acrylic it actually wears more like cotton. It features a ribbed knit fabric that is nice a thick without being bulky. It provides great warmth and the perfect amount of breathability. For the last two winters I’ve worn this guy almost every day and it’s still holding up great.
