Autumn is well and truly here and, whether you’ve been loving or loathing that new nip in the air, now is the perfect time to invest in some fresh headwear for the season. Unless you’re stubbornly refusing to turn on the central heating until November, you probably won’t find much use for 2016’s best beanies inside your mancave, but just as we keep your timepiece ticking wherever you roam, the Barringtons Watchwinder team want to make sure you’re looking good and staying warm while you’re out and about too! Don’t say we don’t care…

Without further ado, here are our top men’s beanies for 2016.

1. Cable Knit Hat, Gucci (£145)

Speckled wool and silk in a chunky cable knit, set off by a bold yellow and navy stripe, make this eclectic beanie a very fine piece of knitwear for your noggin this season.

2. Knit Beanie, Telfar (£177)

This rustic beanie from Telfar features a rugged brown cotton knit in a rich autumnal brown, using an on trend short style spot on for the season.

3. Cashmere Watchman Beanie, Lock & Co. (£195)

Unbelievably soft and inspired by the fishermen of the rugged Scottish coastline, this beautifully made beanie is all man and a warm wardrobe essential this season.

4. Burgundy Urban Renewal Vintage Surplus Beanie, Urban Outfitters (£12)

Right at the other end of the price spectrum, this warm option, made from carefully sourced vintage fibres to create a thick and retro look, is a cosy choice for smaller budgets.

Made in England from 100% British lambswool, this rich navy beanie is all about home-grown goodness. Soft with enough stretch for a comfortable fit, this is a solid choice for the season.
