    Earmuff for when it's cold, but still warm enough to care how you look. The hat you posted for when it's too cold to care.

    How about a tweed flat cap? One is never too young to wear those and they are certainly better looking. Also might look into a Greek Fisherman hat.

    I've got a beautiful NWT wide rib knit cashmere beanie in black I'm about to post in the sale section. It would probably fit the bill. Interested?

    On a side note, has anyone ever heard this referred to as a "Toboggan hat" instead of a beanie?

    I'd suggest something like the Borsalino in the attached image.

    Those type of hats are very versatile. I have a few Borsalinos like that and wear them with everything from very casual, to dressed up. When you take them off, they don`t take a lot space, as you can just crumble them up.

    It must be. I was born and raised in Virginia. I now live in Upstate NY and a tobaggan is a sled to people around here.

    That is a nice Borsalino. That is what type of hat I was refering to as a flat cap. Very nice indeed!

    Is it just me, or do anyone else's ears get colder much more than the rest of the head? As long as my ears are warm I'm fine, and I don't see how a flat cap or fedora is going to get that done.

    We always called them "boggans" growing up. In fact, that's what I still call them. Sometimes they would be called "toboggans". I never heard them called "beanies".
