ALL DRIP, NO CAP: THE ULTIMATE CAP SHOPPING GUIDE
While we are here for seasonal trends, some things never go out of style. And one of those things in the humble cap. Coming in various iterations, styles and colourways, caps can transform a fit with minimal effort. From camo CELINE styles to streetwear-heavy flat caps, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites on the market, to help you secure your next headwear choice. We even hit up some of our community to test them out for us. Don’t say we don’t try.
Sometimes you just want a good old fashioned baseball hat. And if you’re going down that route, these Loro Piana examples are a great choice. Minimal and monochrome, but still high quality in their form and function, LP’s six-segment Baseball Cap is made premium materials such as wind microfibre, cashmere drap, Baby Cashmere, vicuña or velvet cashmere, all treated with Storm System – a treatment that makes them water resistant as well as cozy. These are perfect for capturing that model off-duty look – just ask Tiffanie.

CULTED’s own James tried out the 1017 Alyx 9SM flat cap, acknowledging that it being lightweight made it perfect for the upcoming summer. “A cap has always been something I’ve bee attached to from young. Seeing the likes of Pharrell, Eazy E, Wu Tang etc always have a solid fit finished with pristine fitted cap inspired me to get into caps, and allowed me to find my personalised style, shape and fit. More time you’ll catch me in a fitted cap, or 6 panel cutting through the city” James told us.
