Styling Tip

Pair it with a slim denim or corduroy jacket, rugged chinos and some tassel loafers for a high-low mix that'll knock your casual style out of the park.

The Ball Cap Spectrum

With the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals fighting for supremacy of America's pastime in the World Series, baseball caps are more prevalent on the heads of men everywhere. But in addition to rooting for the home team, we've also noticed a surge in simpler styles unadorned with team logos, or versions paying homage to sports teams of yesteryear. From snapback closures to leather buckles, a wool baseball cap has become a casual cool-weather staple for most guys. Before you add one to your off-duty repertoire, check out a few in a range of prices:
