When Ehrhardt Koch founded the New Era brand back in 1920, he sought to innovate the hat industry. But I think he didn’t imagine he’d be the start of a global fashion phenomenon and a must-have accessory in every wardrobe – the baseball cap. You don’t have to be a hip-hop fan, play baseball or skate to enjoy it. We all love baseball caps, no cap.
It’s the most common type of hat you see on a daily basis. Boys, girls, young and old wear them, and even pets on social media. But choosing one with the right shape and materials isn’t as easy as it looks. On the contrary, it’s closer to rocket science. So I thought that since the best season for baseball caps is right around the corner, I’d give you my tips on how to pick the right cap and what to combine it with
TYPES AND MATERIALS OF CAPS
If you already are a baseball cap aficionado, you’ll know that there are six types of caps – the baseball cap, the dad cap, the trucker cap, the fitted, the snapback and the 5 panel cap. Let’s take a closer look at them, one by one.
The fitted is the first type of cap to see the light of the world. This type of cap, born in 1934, is the mother of all caps. Thanks to the fitted cap, we have baseball caps, snapbacks et cetera. Its telltale sign is the fact that it lacks the fastening on the back. The typical representatives of the fitted cap would be New Era’s 39THIRTY (3930) with a curved brim and the 58THIRTY or 59FIFTY with straight brims.
The trucker cap is, as the name suggests, the favorite type of headwear of your friendly trucker. The trucker cap is very easy to recognise. It has a mesh on the back, the front part is more square-looking and is a bit larger than the baseball cap. Although the trucker cap was first popularized by, well, truckers, these days they’re worn by everyone – skaters, athletes and your friends.
HOW TO WEAR A CAP
Telling you what to wear your cap with is a bit complicated. Caps go well with basically everything, so it’s hard to go in the wrong direction with one. Obviously with the exception of a job interview and similar occasions. If you have an at least partly sporty outfit on, then a baseball cap is always a good accessory.
As far as more formal clothing goes, any pairing of jeans and a t-shirt/hoodie/jacket is complemented by a baseball cap – it fits well with denim and you don’t have to spend as much time thinking about your outfit as with a snapback or dad cap.
