The Watch Cap

The watch cap is known by many names. It can trace its roots to the 12th century, but has evolved into the modern day "tuque," which is the hat's moniker in the Great White North. Traditionally made out of naturally water-resistant wool, the old school stocking cap might be the only piece of cold weather headgear you can wear to work without looking like you just got dropped off a ski lift. Knit from soft yarn varieties like cashmere and Saxxon wool, they look just as good with a suit as they will with your casual weekend wear. Sure, they might dent your 'do, but hat hair and winter go hand in hand.

    Contrary to popular belief, you do not lose the majority of your body's heat through your head.
