5 Online Retailers that Sell Hats for Men

5 Online Retailers that Sell Men's Hats

Hats are a popular gift for many men – from caps that show their pride in a sports team to fashionable winter hats for special occasions – this fashion accessory usually gets a lot of much-needed use.

Straw Hat from Hats in the BelfryLet’s take my father for example, he’s been pining for a straw hat for ages, which led to me learning the difference between a real straw hat and one that is not (and it’s not just the price). That’s why PickUrGift really comes in handy when shopping for hat gifts because style, color, size and quality really does matter, and sometimes, it’s extremely hard to settle on a hat that doesn’t have to be returned.

If my Dad received a Reverse Wishlist™ filled with hats, he’d be overjoyed. To get started on possible hat gifts for men, we’ve listed a few online retailers to get you started.

Different Types of Mens Hats and Caps

1. Hats in the Belfry

With store locations in Annapolis, Baltimore and Philadelphia, Hats in the Belfry operates an online site that sells an intriguing array of men’s hats and caps to fit any personality, special occasion and style. A few brands found on their site include Kangol, Barbisio, and Christys’ Crown. To get an idea of the variety of styles offered through the online retailer, see above.

2. JJ Hat Center (Pork Pie Hatters)

The San Sebastian by JJ Hat CenterEstablished in 1911, J.J. Hat Center is the oldest hat shop in New York.

3. Hats.com

Hats.com boasts the largest online selection of hats for men, women and children. When browsing the site, choose to zero in on a specific style (such as army caps, bucket hats, visors and top hats); or search by brand – from Eddy Bros. to Country Gentlemen. You’ll find plenty of quirky hat options, such as a few from the Kangol Golf by SLJ line (associated with actor Samuel L Jackson), which are featured below:

Some of the additional features of the site include hats made-in-the-USA, top sellers, and new arrivals.

Overall, this site seems to be one of the more affordable of the bunch (outside of our last recommendation), and offers more conveniently targeted search options. For example, when shopping for men’s caps, you can identify specific brands, styles, manufacturers, country of origin, and price. You can also search for caps by material, such as wool, cashmere, denim, suede, mohair, and lambskin selections. For added savings, there is a ‘Sale’ section with discounted items to browse.
