A crisp, well-fitting straw hat is the ultimate flex. Think about it. Temperature-wise, they’re cool as they let your hair breathe and offer excellent shade. And they’re also cool in the sense that they help punctuate your sense of style without making you look silly.
Maybe you like to don a straw hat on your beach vacation? Or while drinking your morning espresso? Whatever the scene may be, there’s a silhouette for every type of guy — even cowboys. It’s the perfect new hat for your wardrobe. From the classic baseball cap to the sassy cowboy hat, make sure to get these best straw hats.
