As the days continue to drench us in sunshine, you might want to think about covering your noggin. Luckily, there’s no shortage of sun-protecting headwear for you to consider, and you can’t go wrong with the Mendez Suede Caps from Lady White.
Handmade by the product’s namesake Jesus Mendez in Lady White’s factory in Los Angeles, they’re unstructured and shallow-fitting, so maybe not for everyone’s skull, but you can unbutton the tiny metal snap closure if your skull is bulging from the seams. They come five colorways in various contrasting earth tones and feature tonal zig-zag construction as well as a cotton sweatband to mop it all up. And because they’re suede, that means some nice patina potential with time and sweat.
Protection against the sun is essential if you’re using their sportswear to… I don’t know, play sports? Even if your sport of choice is couch surfing, a hat when you’re out and about isn’t a bad idea.
Available for $120 at Lady White Co.
