Hipster Hats that Make Me Happy
Which is why I left the house in a Tilley Endurable Ivy Cap. I joined the hipster masses and you know what people said? "Nice headwear!" The other style I tried, the Tec-Wool, got the same response. What did I say? I said you can't argue with a good hat. No one even tried.
Here's what I like about the Tilley winter caps. They have quilted lining and tuck away low profile ear flaps, so they're really warm and get warmer when you pull the ear flaps out. There's a secret pocket in the top where you can keep your bus pass or your marching orders or that love letter that really appeals to your brain. They're made of a very water resistant wool and they keep their shape when you smash them in your backpack with your laptop and your refillable coffee canister and all the other stuff you carry around. There's a little cinch strap inside so you can adjust the fit -- a nice touch. Both caps come in a tweedy brown or a textured black that's really a very dark charcoal gray. And I think I mentioned, they look great.
These things are great for wearing out and about around town, to the microbrewery, while shopping for artisanal cheeses or smoked meats, or heading to a knitters meetup, but they're also great for travel to blustery cold places where you just need to be warm. Want one? Measure your head (they come in multiple sizes) and to the Tilley website.
Oh, and yes, that's me in the picture. I look like a freaking hipster. I don't care.
