Familiar with the word ol’ trusty? It’s what we call that go-to hat that isn’t afraid of a little sun scorch, might need to be wrung out due to a pool cannonball or two, and tosses on never to miss a sunset with a cold crushable beer. Yes, with MLB playoffs on the way and NFL about to kick off, it’s easy to assimilate to the symbol of your hometown allegiance. These are not are not those kinds of recognizable hats on purpose; the caps below are ones to stand out uniquely as your sidekick for an adventurous weekend mode, ready to age gracefully with years of antics. There is only so much summer left, so pick one up and tip your cap to the good life.
Seager Co.mmunity Hemp Snapback
Unstructured five-panel ball cap design and made with a hemp and cotton blend. Add some miles to this cap and it only gets better, plus we really love cacti.
Tokyo Kyojin (Giants) 1940 Ballcap
Ebbets Field Flannels hits a home run with the authentic reproduction of the original 1940 Tokyo Kyojin (Giants) ballcap. Hand-sewn from genuine wool baseball cloth and made in the USA.
Peaking Snapback Hat
An unstructured 6-panel hat with a snapback from the adventure gents at Roark. You gotta love an embroidered logo patch done right.
Yucca Fins Wedge Tested Snapback
Yucca fins are so bad to the bone, they are now making more gear. This is a high-quality hat that already holds a vintage appeal, looks good with a bud-heavy and a fishing rod. Sells out quickly so act fast or you’re late to the game.
Venice Address Trucker Hat
CYTIES co-founder Ryan hasn’t taken this hat off his head all summer. We can’t tell if it’s because of a bad haircut, or just because it may just be the perfect trucker ever made—maybe both?
BONUS ROUND: Vintage Land Rover Snapback Hat
Did you think we were stopping at 5? Not when there is a vintage Land Rover hat up for grabs that can only be pulled off by two people, you and a cool grandpa. Get into it.
