The red hand knit cap is the beginning and the heart of our company. Everyone from Jaques Cousteau to Kanye West wears them. But what outfits go well with a red beanie?
1. Red cap, blue denim shirt — Marvin Gaye, Jaques Cousteau, Steve Zissou
They are poster children for the red cap, and are mentioned a lot in Red Hat Factory articles. What all their iconic outfits have in common is the red/blue contrast, which is one of my personal favorites. I often wear a denim shirt with my red cap.
2. Red cap, green jacket — Kanye West
In nature, the red cap stands out, and that is kind of the point. Wearing military style greens with the cap is never a mistake. Especially if you’re out hunting and want to avoid being mistaken for a moose.
As you blend with nature, the cap pops even more.
It is yet another favorite for us at the Factory.
3. Red cap, yellow rain jacket
Yellow has become the iconic color for rain jackets. Red is the same for knit caps. Two bright icons together creates a colorful collision. Also, the rain jacket as a fisherman’s working wear, draws out the history of the fisherman beanie in your outfit.
4. Red cap on a monochrome backdrop
Black and white are seldom wrong “color” choices when it comes to lending voice to other pieces of apparel. If you want your beanie to shine, why not go monochrome — white or black?
Here at Red Hat Factory we are much more interested in seeing what you can come up with.
How you integrate our caps into your style is way more fun than telling you how to do it. That is why we deliver our hand knit pieces as a long “sausage” of wool that you fold yourself.
After all, though it’s a corny thing to say, the best piece of apparel is actually confidence.
