The popularity of buckets come and go. I think they will always be with us. I have a rather nice one, which I find goes well with my Barbour on a drizzly day. A change from Jeff-caps, and a step up from knit skullies. The gent featured here does a very cool professorial vibe. Neat, tailored, pulled-together look. Perhaps he’s re-thinking the “D” he gave my paper?
Bucket hats are neither in nor out: they are just hats. When you start obsessing over what’s fashionable on any given day in any given month of any given year, the clothes start wearing you instead of the other way around.
