Selectism Buyer’s Guide | 10 Bucket Hats for Spring 2014

We’ve seen a quiet return of the bucket hat — from this past fashion week to countless caps on the streets, it’s quite apparent they’re here to stay. The bucket hat encompasses everything from country-club-dapper to hip-hop; they’re definitely not for everyone, but we’ve rounded up our favorites available now for you to try. See our picks below.

 

Kangol Bermuda Casual

Look familiar? LL Cool J was almost entirely responsible for blowing up the bucket hat trend back in the ’80s. Made from Kangol’s classic fuzzy “Bermuda” material, this one is guaranteed to turn heads. ($64)

 

Thom Browne Seersucker Fisherman’s Hat

Thom Browne offers this blue-grey and white stripe seersucker bucket, in true nautical form — rope ties included. Look for Browne’s classic red/white/blue Grosgrain stripe tab on the back. ($325)

 

Real McCoy’s Denim Army Hat

Japan’s Real McCoy’s is known for their incredibly precise “repro” (reproduction) items — mostly vintage athletic wears. We love this bucket inspired by an original US Army Work Hat. ($132)

 

Norse Projects Slub Print Charter 

Norse Projects are no stranger to the bucket hat. This one’s interesting — the contrast band houses an elastic drawstring allowing for the perfect fit. The “Charter” looks to be the perfect summer wear. Grab it while you can. ($80)

 

Maiden Noir Leopard Bucket Cap

Portland’s Maiden Noir, who are strangely better-known in Japan, make this series of leopard print buckets with a useful design detail. The side of the cap features a button pocket large enough to hold some cash, keys, or something that may need to fly under the radar at a summer concert. ($70)

 

Goods by Goodhood Bucket Hat

Our chaps at Goodhood produce this colorful all-over pyramid print hat under their in-house “Goods” label. An added bonus: the cap is reversible, revealing a classic blue/white seersucker cotton. ($104)

 

Mark McNairy Daisy Bucket Hat

McNasty has incorporated this embroidered daisy motif into many items including this seersucker bucket hat. He is known for blending classic menswear with loud prints and street elements, and this is no exception. ($81)

 

Lock & Co Hatters Reversible Bucket Hat

England’s Lock & Co Hatters make this clean reversible bucket ready for spring showers. One side features classic vintage-style Prince of Whales check while the flip is made from a  water-repellant navy material that is breathable. ($90)

 

Engineered Garments S Rev Hat

New York’s Engineered Garments make American-style clothing with a distinct Japanese sensibility. Although the S Rev Hat has very intriguing shape, we only recommend it for the experienced bucket cap wearer. ($84)

 

AXS Folk Technology Bucket

AXS Folk Technology present a worthy candidate with this drip-dye cotton canvas bucket cap. Summer music festival-ready. ($117)
