If you, like this writer, have a particularly round face, most knit winter hats make it look, well, rounder. All your life, you've told good-intentioned family and friends "Yes, it's cold out and I should put on a hat", knowing that vanity will prevent you from wearing one. Take heed, my moon-faced, cold-eared brothers. Down East standby L.L. Bean feels our pain. Bean's Melton wool Jones cap, favored by hunters for ages, is a nice alternative to the traditional knit version. It has fold-down ear flaps, so it'll keep you warm, but it's got a brim, so you won't look quite as planetary. $30, at L.L. Bean.
