OK, so if you haven't have heard of Gary Clark Jr, let's catch you up: he's been making waves across the Atlantic in recent years, being touted as this century's answer to Jimi Hendrix. Not only that, but he played for the Obamas at the White House in a supergroup whose line-up read like a 'Who's Who' of music royalty (including Mick Jagger, BB King and Jeff Beck). But perhaps more important than all of this is that Clark is a man who knows how to rock a hat with pure, unadulterated flair.

He proves that covering up your barnet is a strong move, and that a trilby, boater or fedora is the last word in understated summer dressing – especially when topping off a casual monochrome look. He also reminds us that pulling on a hat is the best way to look and feel cool when the sun comes out.

So do as this Grammy-winning guitarslinger does and get your hands on some powerful headgear before summer truly hits.
