Welcome to Men’s Hat Trends, the second article in the Autumn/Winter 2019 style series.
This season, there are three overarching trends.
The first style for the A/W ’19 season is full of radical self-expression through bold fabrics, metallic, glitter, sequins, etc.
The next trend consists of a daring color palette inspired by nature with chunky details and trims.
The final style focuses on sustainability with recycled materials and vintage looks updated for the 21st century.
It’s not too late to review and prepare for Spring/Summer 2019 as well.
Style and Personality
Hats for men will include a lot of thick, durable fabrics like denim, corduroy, wool, nylon, and suede. You’ll see a lot of different shapes including trucker hats, sun-protection styles, unstructured 5-panels, and camper caps.
Heathered fabrics, poms, stripes, and Navajo patterns are popular in this market. We’re also seeing beanies with visors and unique art placement.
Surf and Skate
Browns, olives, and other earth tones will work as the base for a substantial portion of products. This style focuses on quality craftsmanship and functional, weathered hats for men.
The Americana trend is very prominent in hats for men. This season, you can expect distressed and tonal styles. We’re mostly seeing the flag used as an all over pattern or in the shape of the cap’s design or logo.
The graphics are predominately single-line, hand-drawn illustrations. There is a lot of simple, clean designs and detailed nature scenery. Many graphics are based around the typography.
Prints and Patterns
Trim and Details
This season, the focus is on small decoration elements that give hats for men a high-end retail look. You can expect things like quilting, perforation, metal accents, and unique closures. We’re also seeing unique art placement, especially under the visor, and patches are everywhere.
