Spring training is still months away so now’s the time to give your favorite baseball cap – that probably really brightly colored one that’s emblazoned with your favorite MLB team’s insignia – a seasonal rest, too. Yes, we know you are a diehard fan, even in the off-season, but unfortunately, wearing said hat right now is probably going to peg you more as an overgrown frat boy instead of the stylish dude you are – or are aiming to become.
This doesn’t mean you have to ditch the familiar, comfortable slugger-inspired lid altogether, though. 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 suiting.
