Hats Off: Deer-stalking season is here!
The arctic winds are coming, and it's time to batten down the hatchets and keep dry and warm for a snuggly, stylish winter! We've all heard the statistics (bogus or otherwise) on how much heat we supposedly lose through our heads, and while some figures may have been exaggerated, it's certainly true that a nice hat will keep you warmer than most other items of clothing.
Happily for those of us who feel the cold, one of the warmest hat styles ever made is in vogue again this year: the deer-stalker hat (also called the "Aviator" or "Trapper". Whether your look is more fluffy shearling or snug wool, there are lots of styles to choose from: all with maximum thermal benefits and a real sense of fun! Here are a few of our faves:
