Men's Bucket Hats
Maybe not the most glamorous of men's hats, but the iconic bucket hat keeps coming back into fashion, so it is reasonable to own at least one. The soft bucket hat is comfortable to wear and can save you and your hairstyle from sunburn or pouring rain.Designs
Choose the design depending on what you are going to wear with it. For casual day wear, pick a hat with plain design that goes with almost any piece of clothing in your wardrobe, or be bold and get a checked, striped, or colourful design. Obviously, going to a formal event like a wedding with a bucket hat is pushing it a bit too hard, but you could wear it for less formal occasions, as a part of a smart outfit. Choose a plain design and pair it with knitwear.Material
The material of the hat determines the best settings and situations for wearing it. Basic cotton bucket hats are suitable for casual wearing, while you would need a technical fabric like nylon or polyester if you wanted to go trekking. Ensure that your head stays dry with a waterproof hat. For sun protection, a bucket hat is also a good option, and you should choose a breathable one to avoid toasting your head.Colour
The hat colour could either match the other items, or break the colours for a more balanced look. For instance, with a casual outfit, you could match the hat colour with the bottoms and use a different tone for the top to break it all apart. Choose a plain white for smart outfits, and forget everything about colour rules if you use it as a part of your streetwear outfit.Size
A hat is only comfortable if the fit is right. Too large a hat may fall off, while one that's too tight could give you a headache. Take your head measurement. Circle your head completely with a tape measure slightly above the ear. Basically, it should be at that point where the hat needs to sit. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. Use the measurement when browsing sizing charts of manufacturers, bearing in mind that the sizes may differ from one maker to another. What is small in one chart could be medium in another. Therefore, always refer to the measurement.
