Recently, we had the opportunity to catch up with our good friend, Quentin Washington. Quentin is the founder & author of the site Avenue Swank. Avenue Swank covers fashion, style, music, politics and pretty much all things cool that you need to know. After knowing Quentin for a few years, it has become evident that he has quite the fitted hat collection. Gone are the days when fitted hats were just another piece of fan gear worn to show solidarity to your favorite baseball. Now, you can find luxury brands teaming up with baseball cap staple brands like New Era to create hats that are just short of being call artwork. This post has three looks all paired with fitted baseball caps for a bit of style inspiration. Below, Quentin gives your some insight to his love of fitted hats. Be sure to tell us what's your favorite look in the comments section below.

"I grew up around baseball and playing baseball, so hats have been a part of my routine since childhood. Hats to me are like shoes; they can give character to a simple look, as well as help tie in colors and patterns. Its an easy way to add trend to a classic look without having to do a full head to toe overhaul." (Quentin Washington)
