There's obviously the expensive Rapha hat available along with the somewhat boring SealSkinz, but are there more options out there?
I have a brimmed one and it's great for the winter, covers your ears entirely. If you get too warm you can roll up the back part and it'll only cover the top of your ears.
So first I got the Rapha Deep Winter cap, which is really warm, but doesn't cover my ears properly and leaves a horrendous band mark across my forehead (which is normally still visible an hour after my commute in the office).
Next, I tried the Craft cap which is available in different sizes. So I got the Large version hoping to avoid the forehead line... but no joy and my ears also stick out of the bottom on that too!
That Giro Ambient looks good though, and available in sizes so that might be my next choice.
the only thing with hats like this, is fitting helmet over it. I go from a '2' setting on my specialized helmets size medium and max it out to '5', also full 'loose' in order to fit it over the winter hat. It's secure though. So if someone was like already maxed out on a medium or upper limit of sizing, and bought a winter hat, i doubt it would fit.
What exactly do you mean by boring ? Not "trendy"... ?

It's available in a zillion brands for very cheap. It does the job perfectly to keep the head warm.
Not too thick like the wool ones, fit correctly with a helmet that has a few "clicks" left on the retention system.
No "belgian style" cap though...

If their caps are anything like their shorts, which are excellent, I'd recommend.
