“I’ll leave it on for a little bit more,” said Action Bronson, from behind NPR’s famed Tiny Desk. “It’s a look. For this first song, this is a look.” The Queens rapper was referring to the hat on his head, an outdoorsy Carhartt fishing cap with a neck flap draping down to his broad, sturdy shoulders. The offbeat accessory didn’t make it past the first verse before he chucked it, but the sartorial choice crystallizes a truth about the beloved musician, chef, and TV host: Action Bronson has a hat for every occasion.

Bronson’s personal style skews ultra-casual with a streetwise New York City edge. You’ll usually find him in a T-shirt, shorts, and sneakers—the type of simple clothes ideal for walking around the city’s most obscure neighborhoods in search of a great bite. When the temperature drops, he’ll add in a hoodie or a trench if he’s feeling fancy. (Hell, he even wore shorts when he was photographed for Aimé Leon Dore’s Fall-Winter ‘22 lookbook.) He pulls the laidback look off damn well, but Bronson’s ensembles are taken to another level entirely via his elite headwear collection, which includes obscure vintage caps, covetable streetwear joints, and a couple of delightfully eccentric options for good measure.
