Flip Your Lid: A Guide to Winter-Appropriate Ballcaps

Spring training is still months away so now’s probably a good time to give your favorite ballcap – that probably really brightly colored one that’s emblazoned with your favorite MLB team’s insignia – a seasonal rest, too.

This doesn’t mean you have to ditch the familiar, comfortable slugger-inspired lid altogether, though. In addition to the great new Todd Snyder x New Era ones we posted about yesterday, numerous brands currently offer sophisticated and borderline dressy versions of the baseball cap in dark, wintery colors, a mix of high-end materials from wool to leather and suede, and with minimal decoration or logos. (If they do have a logo it is generally an extremely subtle tone-on-tone one). They’re great for both day and night and pair well with everything from overcoats to (casual) suiting.

Check out this all-star team of cold weather ballcaps in a wide variety of prices and then make it your belated New Year’s resolution to don one. At least until Opening Day at your local stadium rolls around again, that is….
