Are Brooklyn And David Beckham Sharing Newsboy Hats?


Like all the accomplished members of his family, Brooklyn Beckham wears many different hats. Sartorially speaking, the student-model-photographer is fond of the typical beanie, he’s partial to baseball hats, too, and today we discovered that he’s also got a thing for newsboy caps. It’s a style that often gets a bad rap in fashion, deemed too hokey, too costume-y, and, yes, too reminiscent of the group of newspaper-selling, vest-wearing boys from Disney’s Newsies (1992). Beckham turned those negative connotations on their head yesterday, when he stepped out with his girlfriend, actress Chloë Moretz, wearing a newsboy cap that looked refreshingly cool. Instead of dressing the part—i.e. spiffy 1940s suit—he took a counterintuitive approach, with a simple T-shirt, rolled-up trousers, and Vans sneakers, accessorizing with a yellow carabiner, man jewelry, and a brown belt.

It’s a style that Beckham likely swiped from his father’s playbook. The former soccer-star-turned-fashion-designer has a long history of wearing the newsboy cap. Whether he’s boarding a private jet, sitting courtside at a basketball game, or taking a leisurely afternoon stroll with his family, papa Beckham rarely leaves home without one. Further proof that the apple (or should that be the hat?) doesn’t fall far from the tree
