20 Awesome Photos of Pete Wentz in Hats

By Fawnia Soo Hoo

We were just talking about the book that Pete Wentz wrote in his spare time from his gazillion other projects, including hosting "Best Ink 2." To be honest, it's hard to keep track of everything he's up to (which we'll get to after the jump), but some would say that Pete "wears a lot of hats." And then a look through the past near decade of photos shows that Pete actually does wear a lot of hats—from droopy beanies to hipster fedoras. So to further prove our point of how busy the man is, may we present: 20 Awesome Photos of Pete Wentz in Hats.

Before we get to the pretty pictures, we do need to discuss how Pete juggles a boatload of projects. You may have heard that Fall Out Boy, the pop-punk band in which he plays bass, is coming out with an album in April and hitting the tour circuit in May. Dance Dance, right?

The musician also moonlights with running a clothing line (Clandestine Industries), a nightclub chain (Angels & Kings), a record label (Decaydance Records) and a film production company (Bartskull Films) and working regularly on charitable endeavors. So, what have you accomplished lately? Well, we can at least emulate Pete by buying a few different types of headwear. Here's a look:

20. The Rebellious Tilt

Ah, vintage Pete from 2006. here he is in a bright hoodie, an even brighter t-shirt, a skater cap rebelliously tilted to the side and a rocker snarl to match. Is that guyliner we see? [Photo Credit: Kevin Winter/Getty Images]

19. Dark Night

Pete looks all bundled up and ready for the red carpet in this somber-hued get up. His pensive expression goes perfectly with his emo-sideswept hair. [Photo Credit: Bryan Bedder/Getty Images]

18. Peace Out

(If you can't already tell, I usually write for "The Face," so I may notice fashiony things.) Here in 2008, Pete's got the jump on print-mixing by mashing up a stripey slouchy knit hat with a skull-emblazoned scarf. Bet it was really rocker subversive back then.

17. Fall Out (Paper) Boy

Here Pete rocks a leather-strapped newsboy cap with what looks to be a DIY statement tee. Cool. [Photo Credit: Kevin Winter/Getty Images]

16. Musical Talent

Pete also has this less poofy version of a newsboy cap. It's like he's auditioning for the hipster rock version of "Newsies." [Photo Credit: Gaye Gerard/Getty Images]

15. Deep in Thought

So it should be pointed out that Pete does wear hats a lot, but he also repeats his toppers—kinda like how Kate Middleton re-wears dresses. Here, he may be thinking, "Hm ... when did I wear this fedora last? And hopefully it wasn't on this show." [Photo Credit: Bryan Bedder/Getty Images]

14. Repeat Offender

And look at that, the stripey hat makes one of more appearances. This is also a good chance to take a look at the reason why Pete is hosting "Best Ink 2." [Photo Credit: Bryan Bedder/Getty Images]

13. Off Pitch


It's kind of weird to see him in a sports-related topper, right? A baseball cap almost seems pedestrian considering his extensive hat collection. But Pete was throwing out the ceremonial ball at a Dodgers v. Diamondbacks game in 2009, so it was only polite. It's also interesting to note that Getty Images went out of its way to point out that the Dodgers lost this game 4 to 1 in the descriptive text. Bitter much?

12. Black Out

We're nto sure if Pete looks more gangster goth or cat burgler-ish, but we'll take it. [Photo Credit: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images]

11. Hometown Allegiance


There he goes with the sporty caps again, but this Chicago Bulls one might actually be out of loyalty since Pete hails from Wilmette, Illinois. [Photo Credit: Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images for Rolling Stone's Volkswagen Rock & Roll Tailgate]

10. Working It Out


Hey, that bartender maitre d' looks kinda familiar. Just kidding, Pete's helping out his staff at the two-year anniversary of his establishment, Angels & Kings. He looks like he'd be a cool boss, right? [Photo Credit; Theo Wargo/Getty Images]

9. Hat Head


Is it breezy in there, Pete? The young renaissance man is also a fan of doubling up his headwear. They do say that up to 75% of body heat escapes from the top of your head. [Photo Credit: Scott Gries/Getty Images]

8. What Did We Just Say?

Oh! There he goes again, both sporting the stripey beanie and pulling the hoodie up. Speaking of, Pete Wentz wearing his hoodie up is a whole other photo gallery. [Photo Credit: Scott Wintrow/Getty Images]

7. Rocker Black Tie

This is Pete's version of formal gear: a fancy blazer, black jeans and the newsboy cap. [Photo Credit: Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images]

6. Confused Sports Fan


Okay, first he throws the ceremonial ball at a losing LA Dodgers game, now he shows up at a photo opp wearing a San Francisco Giants cap. Where do your loyalties lie, Pete? [Photo Credit: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images]

5. Um ...

Okay, okay, so that's not a hat, but it's a funny picture. Upon second look, he does actually have a hat on under that laminated piece of paper.[Photo Credit: Bryan Bedder/Getty Images]

4. Hipster Overload

Okay, first the Borsalino (that's a tall fedora, see you learned something new today), then Rayban-y glasses and the (very cool) cowl-necked leather jacket that looks like it was purchased from Oak. Pete would be right at home in Williamsburg in this outfit. [Photo Credit: Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images]

3. I'm Not Even Noticing The Hat

Do you think his guyliner pen ran out halfway through his make-up job? I have a feeling "The Face" coach Coco Rocha would be into this look. [Photo Credit: Ian Gavan/Getty Images]

2. Cricket, Anyone?


No, Pete was not an extra on the house-versus-villagers episode of "Downton Abbey" (okay, am I going too far off topic with that reference?). He's signing autographs at the Kentucky Derby. Gotta say, I love this whole look on him. [Photo Credit: Jeff Gentner/Getty Images]

1. Mugging for the Camera

Guess the afterparty got really wild, huh? [Photo Credit: Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for BMF]
