The Cap You Need Now

The watch cap is a hat that looks good on everyone

What does your watch cap say about you? Do you wear it for functional reasons, like over your ears? Or do you wear it simply for style and roll it up past your ears? Perhaps it depends on your local climate. One thing's for certain, with the colder months approaching, you'll need a good knit cap. Does not matter the color or if it's ribbed or waffle knit, just know that no man should be without one.

Comfortable and stretchy, it never looks out of place—adapting perfectly to suit various personal styles and types of hair. Sure, it feels cozy and can add a nice shot of color to an otherwise muted fit. But when it lives up to its fullest potential, the cap will protect all those sensitive nerve endings in your head from the brutal bite of winter's chill. Not sure which one suits you? That's what we're here for. Knit from cotton and cashmere and stretchy acrylic, these watch caps come in a range of prices and can be worn with everything from your favorite overcoat to your utilitarian down jacket.

Keep Them Clean

You’re wearing them on your head, so you need to wash your cap occasionally. Check the tag, but most can be thrown into the washer on a delicate cycle or washed in the sink by hand. Use cold water, gentle detergent and lay it out flat on a towel to air dry.
