    I haven't taken too close a look, but I know the following have released beanies for the fall winter '10. -- Norse Projects - they look standard issued. Non offensive. But I don't like their tag they include on every piece. Available anywhere. Google. -- SNS Herning knit caps. I have one, actually. I've got a pretty small head but this sucker fits tight as hell. I don't know if I'm not wearing it right. Maybe it's not supposed to go over the ears. I need to read up on the suggested fit of the hat. StreetAmmo has good prices on SNS but bad shipping (a couple weeks to the states at minimum). -- Wings + Horns released a cashmere beanie for the winter - Charcoal, Heather and Black. Roden Gray -- These Heritage Research Beanies at End: http://www.endclothing.com/brands/heritage-research - These Nigel Cabourne's look nice, but all of the solid colors are sold, except white: http://www.endclothing.co.uk/brands/...-beanie-1.html -- If you like Mister Freedom designs (not me personally, but I've always been fascinated with this hat): http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.p...roducts_id=378 Or you can buy bunch of expensive knit hats and then wind up settling on some Coal for twenty bucks and wear that every day in the winter like me.. edit; TDOT beat me to it re; Coal, haha. edit 2; Steven Alan did a cashmere cap too. I've always been happy with SA house products and accessories: http://www.stevenalan.com/catalog/SO...008-18251.html

    I have a hard time with beanies as they really mess up my hair so I avoid them.

    Which beanie would you guys recommend from Coal head wear?

    I'm looking to find one that I could wear with my peacoat. Not so much with my CG because it has a hood already

    Never had one pill actually. And I've had one that I've put through a lot of wear, too.

    The acrylic I believe may cause this kind of shimmer to them in the sun. Like the attached picture shows. Not sure if it's just the green one more so or not..

    they fit well for the most part, on most people, I would think. Comfortable. Cheap. And...Zappos.

    Is wool better if you have long hair? I used to wear a beanie long time ago but it would always cause static. Don't know what material it was.

    What's the fit like on the blackbird beanies? Tight and traditional?

    You could consider a St. James beanie... They are also sold at J.Crew.

    Good luck.

    Without a doubt the scotty - I have one in grey and it's soft and just a perfect size and the acrylic isn't itchy unless you start sweating. I ran it through the wash since I somehow spilled coffee on it and it came out okay, so that's a plus too (it's hand-wash, obv.).

    i would stay away from all acrylic headwear, just pay the extra money for a natural material, your ears will thank you.

    There are several levels of acrylic, much like any other fabric, and I don't know about the ears so much as your forehead - cheap shit can get really, really itchy on my forehead.

    Check out any of the beanies from the Coal Considered line if you want something non-acrylic.

    First two in merino wool for only $35. The last one in cashmere for like $65. I might get the first one.
