Beanie Season is Back With Batoner’s Ribbed Wool Hats

Batoner is the house brand of manufacturer Okuyama Meriyasu of the Yamagata Prefecture, Japan’s knitwear epicenter. While Okuyama Meriyasu isn’t a household name, the fashion houses who entrust them to manufacture their knitwear most certainly are, so you should be assured that Batoner offers the same level of quality of the most illustrious brands out there.

This take on the standard watch cap isn’t revolutionary, but no take on a watch cap should ever stretch the classic design that far to begin with. The epitome of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”, this Japanese-made iteration is rib-knit from a twisted wool yarn. The cozy cap has plenty of material to get your roll on, and is available in three colors and priced so that you could realistically pick up all three while you’re at it. Those that appreciate a monochromatic look will want to note that these tones match those of Batoner’s signature rib crew neck sweater, also at Brooklyn Tailors.

Available for $75 in olive, navy, and camel, at Brooklyn Tailors.
