Logomania reaches new heights this fall with baseball caps. “They’re definitely a hot item,” said Jian DeLeon, the men’s fashion director at Nordstrom. “It’s an easy way for people to dip their toes into the world of a brand.”
In the process, the humble cap has been elevated to a snazzy fashion staple. “It used to be you’d wear a Yankees cap with Celine,” he said. “Now the cap can be the high end of the outfit.” Here are six to consider for your wardrobe.
This street-art-style cap, faded to evoke a timeworn favorite, comes from the luxe purveyor of logomania, Balenciaga.
