Put The Bucket Hat On Your Style Bucket List
Hate it or love it, the internet’s most controversial hat (save maybe Pharrel’s Vivienne Westwood “Grammy hat”) doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Year after year the bucket hat lives on, from Gilligan in the mid 60’s, to rappers of the mid 80s, and now today with Japanese-Americana menswear enthusiasts. I’ll admit that I didn’t always “get” it, but I fell in love the instant I tried one on. Why? I mean a) too lazy to do my hair, b) goes better than a snapback with some outfits, c) it’s actually functional for keeping you cool, and d) I just love the look.
I chose to style my bucket hat with a workewear/fisher-dude vibe in a thrifted denim vest and some dropcrotch cotton pants. The perfect accessories for this look include my new handwoven Japanese sashiko and chambray split bandana by Kiriko and this handsomely rugged leather bracelet from the amazing new Coach + Philip Crangi collaboration.
Below are some of my favorite looks that demonstrate more ways you can rock a bucket hat with style this spring.
