i’m not sure about your weather, but we’re sweatin’ out here in nashville.  it was 77 degrees today.  it’s probably not the best time to be discussing stocking hats, but go ahead and get yours before there’s a run on them this holiday season.  here are my four favorite this year:

never underestimate a good stocking hat in the fall and winter.  i’ve always gone with either a navy or gray, but i think it’s time to branch out.  the price of a good stocking hat can range from $3 to $100 and honestly if you’re paying that much then you must be rich and crazy.  i have a couple of $20 stocking hats from the gap that have lasted for several years.

i like the saint james for j. crew hat above.  saint james is a french clothing manufacturer that got its start by making wool products for sailors i.e. they know how to keep you warm.  you can find another version of their cap for $10 cheaper here.  i believe the main difference is that the wool on the cheaper hat is not as thick.

if you need some inspiration on how to wear your red stocking hat look no further than steve zissou and his crew:
