Nothing like cotton caps and hats to announce the arrival of spring or summer! (Unless it's linen and silk caps, but we'll get to those later.) Getting firmly back on track, let's take a look at that back-by-demand cadet cap called The Spirit from Carlos Santana. It's comfortable in washed cotton, has a true-fit velcro backstrap and is detailed with embroidered art. Satisfied customers leave five-star

If it's a flat cap you're after, Bailey offers a very nice rendition made from a blend of linen and cotton which feels as good on as it looks. Called The Drayer, this ivy cap is in a dockman style with a slightly elongated silhouette and sewn down brim. More cotton caps that are always popular for summer wear include The Allenport by JB Stetson, a 100% cotton cap that boasts details like the embroidered golden yarn crest on the front and embroidered trim on the bill, as well as authentic Greek Fisherman caps from Aegean.
Believe it or not, The Collective, a stingy brim fedora from from Santana by Carlos Santana, is made from a blend of cotton and polyester. This braid hat is finished with a suede band and overlay and also features roped piping, applique and an Abraxas Angel pin. The 1 3/4 inch brim is bound, and the charro suede leather sweatband adds comfort.
Scala's got a couple of great cotton hats to consider: The Diamond Head and The Carson. The Diamond Head is a great summer hat in 100% brushed cotton with a sun-shielding three-inch brim. The crown has mesh sides to catch every hint of a cooling breeze, and the leather chin cord helps it all stay put. The Carson is a safari hat with a smaller brim, but also made of garment-washed cotton and features mesh sides to circulate the air effectively. Both hats are packable and crushable for convenience when traveling.
Returning this year from Robert Graham Hats, you'll see a walking hat called The Shoreline. This 100% cotton stingy brim fedora features embroidered surfers on a paisley jacquard body. Trimmed with a vivid grosgrain band and embroidered RG crest, it's finished with a colorful cotton and satin sweatband and silk lining. We've also got a newsboy cap from the designer called The Diablo Canyon. This is in a cotton/poly blend and has a sewn down brim and solid visor. Take a look inside to see the Roaring 20's Art Deco silk lining - just for fun.
- I have been wearing this style cap for the past 5 years and Carlos Santana caps are the best. The style, construction and attention to detail is awesome. Shortly after getting my Santana caps, I put all my others in the Goodwill bin.
- I've received a lot of compliments -- very stylish and made for a gentleman to wear.
- The Santana cadet cap is a very well made item. It's stylish and has a great liner.
- Very pleased. Great quality and fashionable. Now one of my favorite hats.
