The Manual’s Top 5 Bucket Hats

Yep, the bucket hat is back, in a really big way. Though you may have thought the trend was put to bed sometime around 1996, the trend for these ingenious sunhats has now gone full circle – your summer ’14 wardrobe is unlikely to be complete without one.

If you’re tentatively thinking of investing in one, check out our top five choices from some of our favourite brands. We’re tempted to throw caution to the wind and bag the lot…

Cheetah Camo Bucket Hat by Stussy

As prints go, this little number from Stussy is pretty awesome. We’re feeling the dark, muted palette and modest logo tag. Crafted from 100% cotton, complete with vent holes we’re thinking this is a great option for those blazing hot summer days, whether you’re in the city or on the beach.

Reversible Water-Resistant Bucket Hat by Lock & Co Hatters

British brand Lock & Co Hatters are the oldest hat shop in the world and this timeless design is testament to their long-standing popularity. Featuring a subtle herringbone pattern and a smart navy reverse, this piece will go with anything in your wardrobe. We promise.

Sable Bucket by Hotel 1171

If you’re looking to make a statement with your bucket, look no further than Hotel 1171’s equestrian take – the perfect companion to a white tee. This baby is crafted from linen so your head is guaranteed to stay cool and sweat-free. To ensure it remains an original, the brand will only release a total of 50 so if you want it you might want to giddy up (sorry).

Marina Batavia Cotton Linen Bucket Hat by Stone Island

We love this one. And if you’re all about simplicity and quality brands you will too. The classic navy colour, the narrow brim, the ventilation holes and the tasteful branding…we’re sold.

Men’s Blue Floral Printed Bucket Hat by Brooklyn we go Hard

This bucket from Parisian brand, Brooklyn we go Hard, makes us wanna catch some waves. The smart floral pattern and lightweight chambray cotton fabric are the icing on the cake. Pair with your favourite short sleeve shirt and shorts for rad summer style.
