It’s blinking cold right now in London, where MR PORTER is headquartered, and, as a result, the number of hats on show in the office is on the rise. Beaniesflat caps and snapbacks are increasingly foremost in our thoughts, as well as perched on our heads. This is a boon for those of us who – how can we put this delicately? – could do with a bit of coverage where the follicles aren’t as fecund as they once were; less so for fans of hair styling products. But is this a climatically charged blip or could it be symptomatic of a wider trend, a broad acceptance of headgear in the workplace as office attire becomes increasingly democratised? One reader hopes to find out.

Will hats be more popular?
