While we love covering our hair with a beanie or a bobble hat, wearing one in the summer is akin to enjoying the summer sun in your finest winter parka. You wouldn’t do that, and there’s no reason to wear a winter hat in the summer either. No, what you need is one of the best summer hats, which will serve you well until those other options become useful again and beyond.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of our 15 favourite men’s summer hats. From caps, to bucket and Panama hats, this is headwear that will see you stylishly and safely (UV rays are no joke) through the summer, whatever your style.
Afends Systems Change Bucket Hat
Afends is a Byron Bay based fashion brand that is leading the way in organic hemp fashion. This bucket then is both stylish and sustainable. That’s what we call a win, win.
Off-White Hand Off Baseball Cap
A black cotton cap from designer Virgil Abloh’s Off-White brand. Is it simple? Yes. Is it hella stylish? Also, yes.
Grosgrain-Trimmed Straw Panama Hat
This straw Panama hat is only to be worn by a gentleman. It is made to be doffed, not removed, and should be used to shield your face from the sun while you’re enjoying a Pimm’s in the garden.
Y-3 5 Panel Cap
Y-3 is the result of a collaboration between renowned Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas. Here the two have created a fitted black cap that’s stylish enough to wear out and comfortable enough to wear around the gym.
Jordan Jumpman Washed Bucket Hat
Save to Wishlist
When Drake rapped, “Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to somethin’,” he was probably talking about the development of this super-stylish washed bucket hat. Probably.
Nike Futura Washed H86 Cap
It’s blue. It’s Nike. It has the swoosh, and it’s perfect for a sunny day. Need we say more?
Beams Plus Army Hat
Cargo pants aren’t the only style piece commandeered from the army. This hat, which is based on US Army work hats from the 1930s and ‘40s, definitely has that old-school American G.I. coolness to it.
Tie-Dyed Nylon Cap
The drawstring on this tie-dyed nylon cap will keep it secure, while the back flap will protect your neck from the sun, which we’re sure the Wu Tang Clan would approve of.
Palm Angels Broken Monogram Logo Bucket Hat
The brand Palm Angels originated as a coffee table book of black and white photographs documenting architecture, landscapes and in-action portraits of the LA skate scene. Thankfully, the brand now make bucket hats too and we can show you this beautiful monogrammed logo option.
Dickies Hardwick Cap
Snapback season is almost upon us. Do it right with this baby blue cap from Dickies.
Pretty Green X Umbro Bucket Hat
This looks like the kind of thing Liam Gallagher would wear, you say? Well, that’s because it’s the result of a collab between Gallagher’s brand Pretty Green and Umbro. And if that doesn’t stir up some 90s nostalgia in you then nothing will.
Calvin Klein Jeans Pride Reversible Bucket Hat
Calvin Klein Jeans
Underwear authority and all-round fashion icon Calvin Klein has done it again with this reversible tie-dye bucket.
ASOS Design 5 Panel Cap
Getting yourself one of the best summer hats needn’t cost the earth, especially when ASOS Design are coming through with these cost-effective caps.
Burberry Reversible Checked Wool-Blend Twill Bucket Hat
The beauty of a reversible hat is that it’s like getting two hats for the price of one, which, at this price, is very much appreciated. Still, it is Burberry, and this is an investment, not just a hat purchase.
Brain Dead Nigel Colour Blocked Bell Bucket Hat
Brain Dead is a creative collective of artists and designers from around the world, which takes its cues from post punk, underground comics, skateboarding and the spirit of subculture as a whole. So if you want to rep the counterculture this summer, this is the hat to do it in.
