Don C, of Chicago concept boutique RSVP Gallery fame, could be considered the premiere couturier for snapbacks and fitted caps—piecing together basketball and football team logos with luxe leather details in unique ways. Despite their hefty price tag, his line of python brimmed caps have developed a cult following amongst dudes that prefer his elaborate creations to the standard issue hats. His latest release, though, might be even more niche in their appeal compared to previous offerings. Available in singular hues of cobalt blue, pale grey and a pumpkin-spiced orange, Just Don's new punchy caps have us yearning for the often-referenced early 2000s era when guys comfortably rocked bright, monochromatic looks—think matching leather jacket, jeans, Timbs, the whole nine. We're hoping these fearless caps revive this Technicolor way of dressing, veering us away from the layered black-on-black-on-black aesthetic that been ruling the menswear scene. If you're not afraid to taste the rainbow, cop your Just Don cap exclusively at Barneys New York.
