Where Did the Beanie Hat Originate?
s Men's Hats Styles Guide
No matter what activity you're engaged in, you'll be sure to find the right hat to suit your needs. Bright sunshine and warm weather can mean wearing a visor to keep the glare from hitting your eyes, or pick up a safari or bucket hat to provide added coverage and block the sun from hitting your neck and face. A bandana can provide a sporty look while soaking up sweat and moisture before it hits your face. If the temperature starts to drop, reach for a beanie to help keep you warm, or put on a headband that covers just your ears.
Vintage Mens Hats
A hat is a head covering which is worn for various reasons, including protection against weather conditions, ceremonial reasons such as university graduation, religious reasons, safety, or as a fashion accessory. Some hats have a protective function. As examples, the hard hat protects construction workers' heads from injury by falling objects and a British police Custodian helmet protects the officer's head, a sun hat shades the face and shoulders from the sun, a cowboy hat protects against sun and rain and an ushanka fur hat with fold-down earflaps keeps the head and ears warm.
Dolores's interest in fashion history dates from her teenage years when vintage apparel was widely available in thrift stores. Hats and headgear provide protection from the elements, imply social status, or can identify the wearer's group affiliation or career. Even in today's hat-optional culture, we mentally place a crown on the head of a king or a beret on the head of an artist. Until the late 29th century, hats or head coverings were an essential aspect of a man's wardrobe.
