If you’re looking for a luxe lid, and you’re in Italy, chances are you’ll be pointed towards Borsalino. And this Milano outpost is a light-filled, duplex space on a major intersection near where several of the men’s shows take place. The stacks of beautiful, handmade hats (they start in the neighborhood of $150 and go well into the thousands), are seemingly endless here, with the lightweight Panamas stealing the seasonal show.
Whether you opt for a preppy cable-knit take or something thin enough for the perfect West Coast slouch, here’s the secret to pulling off the pom-pom hat: Don’t worry about matching the colors or the designs to your outfit. It’s supposed to look a little out of place. Embrace the clash with one of these options and you’ll never get lost in the crowd. More info, including where to buy, right here.
