This classic, unisex cap in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) gets its name from a popular style of chain link with a similar appearance. This is a hat with the right amount of yummy texture to satisfy any appetite—it’ll be a “go” with a sleek dress coat or a casual tech jacket. Knit it with the doubled brim (shown here) for extra warmth around the ears or with a trim single brim for smooth urban style. Likewise, a slouchy length or close-fit size is up to you.
