i do not discriminate against a beanie. i have many and have probably never spent over $15 on one. if you're up for a bit of a pricier one, that yellow polka dotted one is perfection in my humble opinion. now, when it comes to a beanie purchase, can i offer some tips? take 'em, leave 'em, hate 'em, love 'em... but here they are nevertheless: look in the men's section. beanies are practically unisex, so don't limit yourself to the women's section. same goes for kids. most of parker's beanies aren't even "kid" beanies. also, if you don't like the cuffed look, you can often uncuff it (as long as it's not a stitched cuff) to achieve the more slouchy look you want or to get it further down on your forehead. and finally, when you're having a bad hair day as i often am, get out your beanie. that one was pretty obvious.
