Knitted Ear Caps Are the Obvious Solution to My Cold Weather Woes

I don't throw the term genius around a lot, but whoever created these knitted ear caps must be an enlightened individual. They're the perfect way to keep extra warm while reminding everyone of just how damn hip you are.

I've searched high and low for some way to keep my ears warm—but not my entire ears—just the tips of them. And I wanted to make sure the solution I found was obnoxious, easy to lose, and complemented a neck beard. I thought my search was a lost cause until I found these Swedish Hipstörmössan which translates to hipster head covering. Bingo.

I've no idea where you can buy your own set, and even if I did, I don't think I'd actually tell you. I'm sure they'll pop up on Etsy soon enough, but until then I'll do my best to spare humanity this embarrassment. [Beckmans via Fancy]
