Buying beanies online from looks alone is risky business.

I find that, more than almost any accessory or clothing item, the fit of a beanie can be so drastically different brand-to-brand, model-model, that trying them on is pretty important since head size differs so much.

most beanies are one size for all.

so that doesn't make any sense.

Only child, but the person who knitted that hat for me just winged it and it turned out exactly like his, as far as I can tell from the picture. Kinda thin though so I'm going to cop http://cdni.llbean.com/is/image/wim/...id=330&hei=295

It actually makes perfect sense. If they had multiple sizes you could more accurately guage head shape/size. With one size fits all, you are hoping that that one size, and design of one size, will fit your head well. Just because something is "one size" doesn't mean it will fit everyone desirably. That is why fitted baseball hats are sized, and non-fitted caps have straps to adjust. If you think a one size beanie will fit a person with a 7 1/4 head the same as a 7 1/2, you are wrong. Not to mention size of ears, length of face, etc. All I'm saying is, it's best to try them on. The point I'm trying to make is, you never get measurements on one-size beanies, some are longer some shorter, they might technically fit on everyone but they won't look good on everyone. If you can't try it on in person just gamble and return it if it is a bad fit, but if you can it's always better.

Lol, that's pretty funny. I actually prefer the green one. It is a tighter knit and fits me a little better. I may have my mom knit me another one without the pom pom in a more neutral color.

It's true that it's better to try on beanies before you buy, the materials matter a lot and the fit can be really different between them. Nevertheless I've had good luck with chunky handknit wool beanies found on etsy for <30 dollars.

i'm totally expecting and prepared to get flamed for posting this, but i just received this cashmere beanie and its pretty f'ing amazing. before you jump to conclusions, you can't really argue that it doesn't look unisex upon first glance and i was looking for something in a heather grey and would have tried this if they actually offered it in that color. no i don't condone purchasing women's clothing but hats can be unisex.

but back to the beanie- its very lightweight but still insulates like crazy. the fit is pretty much perfect and when worn it actually looks like the rib-trim extends throughout the entire beanie and not just the brim, basically the same way this looks in the pic. i was prepared to return it if it looked effeminate in any way but it definitely doesn't. although obviously if you prefer one of the darker colors offered in the mens version i'd look at that first. and if you've got 150 bills to burn then i'd consider this:




good luck finding a decent 100% cashmere beanie cheaper than 48 bux though^^. my winter beanie search has concluded.
