    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?

    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.
