Man's Hat Pattern

I want to knit my fiancee a hat, but I can’t seem to find a pattern that is masculine enough. Help Please…

Wouldn’t just a basic hat be masculine? There are a ton of those around.

…and lots more…

I think Jan’s right. It’s more about yarn and colour choice in a way than pattern necessarily - although one would perhaps not go for lacey patterns etc.
