- All about trying some new things, so it was with curiosity that I opened a box from Pilot & Captain the other day. Inside was their navy, five-panel hat. I’m much more of a traditional ballcap kinda guy, but I like the way this hat was structured (it’s made by Alternative for P&C) and how it framed my face. I’m also about six weeks into letting my beard grow out, so the “camper” hat combined with my scruff really changed my look. Always good to have options || Pilot & Captain: P&C Camper Hat
