Beanie: Buying guide for men

How to choose the most suitable winter hat for you, based on your style and hairstyle.

If you think the beanie doesn’t fit everyone, maybe you just always picked the wrong one!

Despite what you think, the hat changes – and changes also its fit – according to the fabrics, the style and the workmanship, but more importantly, it must be chosen according to the hairstyle you have.

This guide will explain the four most famous models and how to choose the perfect one for you.


1) The Essential Cuff Beanie

Its strength is given by the essential style, which adapts to any look: it can be worn every day and, thanks to the vast palette of colors available,  is easily combined with sweatshirts, coats, down jackets and scarves.

The flap keeps the forehead and ears warm. It’s worn close to the head, and it is for this reason that they are suitable for men who wear a short, shaved cut or who are bald.

2) The Short Fisherman Beanie

As the name suggests, this cap is inspired by the wool one worn by Fishermen from the northern seas. It has become one of the symbols of the Northern European Hipster style of the last ten years, without ever losing its fascinating appeal.

It has a shallow crown leaving the ears semi-exposed, adapting perfectly to the head: it can also be worn by those who wear medium-long hairs, as it leaves the hats free on the nape.

3) The Long or Tongue Beanie

The tongue cap has a longer structure than the classic ones and allows a “relaxed” style, thanks to the longer shape behind the head.

It takes inspiration from those of the Rastafarians, but adapted for the “urban” lifestyle, that it has been made less voluminous, maintaining the length.

Its strong point is its versatility: in fact, it can be either folded over the forehead or left “dangling” at the nape of the neck, ideally to collect hair. It’s particularly suitable for men who wear long hair and dreadlocks.

Pleasures has focused on the classic 90’s Hip Hop Style with logo on the cuff, as well as Chinatown Market


4) High Top Beanie

Halfway between the classic hat and the fisherman’s one, the High Top style is worn in a very relaxed way, almost with forgetfulness.

While it doesn’t offer much warmth, the High Top Beanie has a space on the top and can be worn flat on the head without falling off.

It is the ideal model for those with curly hair, as it does not press on the head and does not spoil it.
