Although helmets and masks play a central role in the Star War saga -- Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Stormtroopers, Rebel pilots -- hats never really received their due. Sure, there are Imperial officers, Rebel ground forces, and that unfortunate bucket hat Luke Skywalker tried to pull off on Tattooine. Otherwise, though, hats are second-class headgear is a galaxy far, far away; they're the droids of head covering, basically.
And that's a shame, because the films could've done for the beanie what they did for the hooded cloak. But while Star Wars never embraced hats, one headwear company has certainly embraced Star Wars.
New Era's Star Wars collection is pretty impressive in its variety, with caps and beanies based on Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, Boba Fett, Jango Fett, Captain Phasma, Stormtroopers (both Empire and First Order variety), R2-D2, C-3P0, BB-8, X-Wing pilots and more.
My favorite is, without a doubt, the shiny gold Big Face 59Fifty C-3PO, which is as unashamedly '70s as the protocol droid himself. So much so that you'll probably need a pair of roller skates and gold lamé hot pants to properly accessorize.
The caps range in price of $20 to $56.
