What hat brand makes great warm-weather hats in the style of kangol's ventair/504 cap or even a beret?

Obviously, Kangol does, right? Well, I've had bad luck with the logo embroidery on my Kangols disintegrating with normal wear so I'm kinda soured on them for durability reasons. If I'm gonna wear something with a label and pretend I'm cool with my backwards hat, I'd rather it not fall apart and plunge me into even deeper humiliation.

So what Kangol competitors offer similar style warm-weather hats and berets?

I believe what you're looking for is called an ivy cap. Here's a bunch... does this look like what you're looking for? I can't speak to durability, though.

Oh, excellent! I hadn't known what it was called. Now at least knowing the name of the hat style should give my own googles some direction. Thanks, chesty!
