If you’re thinking about branching out beyond the ball cap this summer, then I heartily recommend giving Portland, Maine’s Quaker Marine Co. a look. Founded over 60 years ago, the brand has long been the boaters’ go-to for authentic nautical headwear. Offering everything from classic yachting caps, to Gilligan-style tennis hats, to tasteful straw numbers (all of which are proudly handcrafted in the USA), QM has a warm-weather head-topper to fit any taste. And, with prices ranging from $20 – $40 per, they fit nearly any budget too. Really, as far as non-baseball hats go, you can’t do much better.
And if you did have your heart set on a new ball cap this summer, well, they make those too.
