Although the bucket hat was originally used in a purely functional fashion by fishermen and farmers alike, it has become something altogether different in its 100+ years of life. Now favored by the fashion world’s elite, making regular appearances on runways and Fashion Week street shots, the bucket hat has become a go-to headwear choice in recent years.

The age-old question: form or function comes in to play when thinking buckets. The right one should afford you enough of both thanks to its utilitarian origins and current status. And whether you’re entering the hat game on a budget or you’re ready to take your accessories to luxury levels, we’ve got a bucket hat for you.
