Chicago White Sox New Era 2018 Players’ Weekend Low Profile 59FIFTY Fitted Hat – Red/Black

MLB Chicago White Sox Mass Cuff Knit Cap

  • $14

It’s a knit hat, man. 4.8 out of 5 star reviews on Walmart, so it must be both warm and fashion-forward.

The picture cuts off, keeping you in suspense: Cutsey little pom-pom at the top of the hat, or no? NOPE. This is a serious knit cap! No pom-poms.

MLB Chicago White Sox Basic Cap / Hat by Fan Favorite

  • $9

Classic ball cap. If you don’t want to pay those fancy New Era prices, this is your cap. Also, if you have a varying head size, this is your cap, because there’s an adjustable strap on the back.

The reviewers do rave about the quality of the cap. It’s considered “basic” because there’s not a lot of extra nonsense on the cap (like, say, a New Era logo ...). Even comes with a pre-rolled cap bill.
