I got tobogans, beanies, two bucket hats, and a bunch of snapbacks, some bandanas. I usually get my snapbacks from Spencers Gifts.

It can be hard to find a hat that someone else will like. If you think he might want to expand his wardrobe horizons you might consider a flat cap--it's not much more formal than what he's used to, but it does take it up a notch.
My son has one of these, and I've seen a few other guys with them. Not usually worn with t-shirts or super casual look, but my son often wears his when he goes out on the weekend.

I've always liked to wear hats, and have tried a few styles like the flat cap. I just really couldn't get into them. As I've gotten older, I've steered away from baseball caps with team logos on them, or bold colors, and prefer either faux leather or vintage caps. With age, I do tend to shy away from things with big logos on them and wear more plain, dark colors. I don't know if he would prefer any of these. If it were me, I would go for a vintage-style baseball cap with no logo or a small one, in a dark color like navy blue, dark brown, or black.

Newsboy caps
Pork pie hats

The two above look good on many young men.

However, I love to see a man in a bolero hat. They look best on tall, slim, confident men. If your nephew fits the bill, that may look good on him. It's a dramatic hat, and good to wear for special occasions, or for going out on the weekend.

I'm 34 and just picked up a hat from Yellow 108 on a trip to Austin 2 weekends ago. Not bad for the price.

Well, after explaining to him that beanies and baseball caps are juvenile and stupid-looking, why not take him to the most elegant men's hat store in town, and let them make a fuss over him?

He might look very snappy and individual in a fedore, by the way.

Can never go wrong with a bandana. It's all you really need.

I don't wear baseball caps but I don't think they are juvenile. Just not my style. And beanies? I wear beanies quite a bit in the winter. They are a great functional choice and can look great depending on your personal style. I'm 34 and definitely fashion conscious/fashion forward. My fiancee, along with being a performance dancer and teaching dance, models clothing and works in fashion. Both of us wear beanies and neither one of us feels beanies are juvenile or 'stupid looking'. Certainly we are allowed to disagree as fashion and style is highly subjective, personal, and regional. But I just don't feel that a beanie as a whole is considered juvenile or stupid nor do I get that impression from most people I am around as I see them regularly.

There is a time and place for a lot of different kind of hats. Wearing a baseball cap to a semi formal event? nah. Wearing a beanie on a winter night out show/bar hopping in NYC? Nothing wrong with that.

My youngest son always wears a hat - different kinds depending on what he's doing and the weather - and he looks really good in them. I don't know if they are just the style now with young men or what, but I love it.
