Are you the type of dude that likes to wear hats but doesn’t know which hats are considered dapper nowadays? If so, you’ve come to the right place. John Dapper is going to show you a few different hats that are guaranteed to make you dapper and attract the right kind of attention.
Most guys usually wear baseball caps. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, you really need to expand your hat game if you want to be dapper. By investing in a couple different types of hats you’ll always be ready to take your outfit to the next level–no matter what you’re wearing.
The Bucket hat was designed to protect you from the sun as much as possible and does a great job in doing so. The Bucket also has a couple of holes on top for better air circulation and is guaranteed to keep you nice and cool on those hot summer days. This hat can be a little tricky to pull off and if you don’t do it right you’ll end up looking like Gilligan. I suggest you pair it off with a nice polo shirt, some khaki shorts, and some boat shoes.
The Pork Pie
Pork Pie hats are made of either straw or felt and have a cylinder shape like a crown. These are extremely dapper and quite popular with the jazz crowd. The Pork Pie hat is a classic, timeless hat that can be worn with pretty much anything. When you wear this hat, I guarantee that all eyes will be on your head and not your outfit.
The Panama hat originated in Ecuador and is made out of woven straw. This is the perfect hat to wear during the summer and will match very nicely with either a linen or seersucker suit. This is the kind of hat you wear when you want to dress up and remain casual at the same time. I highly recommend you also smoke a cigar while wearing a Panama.
At one time, this hat was once considered the “rich man’s Fedora” and will add a touch of class to your wardrobe. This is a nice hat to have because it’s simple and sophisticated at the same time. It has a slightly smaller brim than the closely related Fedora and will surely grab the attention of those around you.
The Newsboy cap was very popular in Europe and the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries among boys and men. The hat originated from the boys selling papers and somehow migrated onto the heads of regular men. This is a great cap to wear when you want to stand out from the crowd and be original. What’s great about this hat is that it looks best with jeans and a t-shirt so you can wear it every single day.
These are a few types of dapper hats that will expand your collection and move you away from wearing only baseball hats. If you’re the kind of guy that doesn’t wear hats, these are all great to try out and see if you like them. Even if you don’t like the hats at first, I guarantee you’ll like all the attention you get–especially from the ladies!
