Since we got the obligatory questionable pun about "no cap" out of the way in the headline for this article, let's get straight into why the headwear is a wardrobe staple.

The history of hats is thought to go back as far as 3,200BC and since that time they continue to be used for the same purpose: as protection from the sun. From baseball players to dads on holiday, spring is the time when everyone starts reaching over to their cap collection more regularly.

As with any accessory, the right piece of headwear can either make or break your outfit and the best headwear to add to an outfit is undoubtedly a cap due to its versatility. A vintage trucker hat can be the finishing touch to any workwear-inspired look, while you can prove you are a streetwear OG with a Supreme 5 panel, and pairing a baseball cap with formal wares can tip the scale more towards casual than smart casual.

Bringing together some of the best men's hats on the market, from the traditional baseball styles to dad caps, check out our favorite caps below.
