Pull this brimmed cap over cold ears as the first pinks of sunrise strike the horizon and you begin your day. Made from springy, soft Merino, Hansmire comfortably hugs your head in an elastic 1x1 rib, finishing with a modern, seamed crown that’s both classic and fashion-forward. Ranch 03’s prismatic palette brings a modern flair to this cozy new staple that’s sized for the whole family. Enjoy this cap on casual outings in both the city and countryside.
