The best beanies for men: Function meets style in these incredible hats
Pick up one of these beanies to keep your head warm this season

The colder months make it easy to cancel plans, brew coffee or hot chocolate, and curl up on the couch to watch an entire season of your favorite show. However, we're not built to stay inside and hibernate for the duration of the winter, which means you need to bundle up and brave the cold. Of course, when going outside in the cold, covering your head is a must.

The beanie is a brimless hat that covers the entire head down over the ears and stops just above the eyebrows. They are usually on the casual side, but when trying to stay warm, it is more about function than fashion. However, that doesn't mean you have to shirk sharp-looking beanies altogether. Here are a handful of luxurious and attractive options to keep your noggin warm.

The 10 best tactical watches for men looking for that rugged aesthetic
Be ready for anything with these watches that are just as tough and durable as you are

Tactical watches were initially designed to be task-specific and created specifically for flying, diving, or even trench warfare. Other men’s watches might be stylish, but can they, as the Timex saying goes, take a lickin’? It could be said that the very first wristwatches for men, designed for soldiers in World War I, were, technically speaking, tactical watches. Today — although specialty watches may incorporate specific features for everything from space flight to deep-sea diving — they are mostly known for a rugged aesthetic, with big faces and large, easy-to-read digits.

They’re usually accompanied by a fabric or NATO strap that is very secure and dries quickly; silicone or braided paracord is also popular. Their chunky nature may be a bit too casual to wear with a suit, but it makes them the perfect accessory to wear with today’s everyday wardrobe, rounding out a rugged cotton or flannel shirt with khakis or jeans, and, of course, boots. We also like them with tweedy sport coats and textured heavier-weight suiting materials. What’s best is that the style seems to come across a wide range of price points, so you can pick one up on a whim to build your timepiece collection or make an investment purchase that can become a family heirloom. Here are a few of our favorites.
