The Detailed Introduction of Baseball Caps

If you want to know about baseball caps, you cannot skip the history of baseball caps. So, let’s talk about the history of baseball caps first. In the beginning, baseball caps came out with baseball games to protect baseball players from sunlight to get a better score. Therefore, baseball caps originated in the United States. Usually, the defenders wore baseball caps, leading to their fans wearing them to support their favorite teams or players. Since then, baseball caps have become popular and various clothing brands have released different baseball caps, enriching the types of baseball caps.

The types of baseball caps have enriched and can be sorted by these 4 aspects – the front profile, the brim, the pattern, and other ornaments. These 4 aspects are not separated and crossed with each other. However, according to different wearing styles, occasions, and outfits, the selection needs are different. Here, we Aung Crown – an experienced hat maker with more than 25 years of experience in hat and garment manufacturing, will introduce these 4 aspects of baseball caps. Now, are you ready for this cap journey?

1.    Front Profile: Buckram or Unstructured (also called structured or unconstructed)

It’s recognized that choosing a hat depends on your dressing style. In general, petite people are fit to wear a buckram baseball cap (a structured baseball cap) and tall people are fit to wear an unstructured baseball cap (an unconstructed baseball cap). Usually, buckram baseball caps are more shaped and can make the head look bigger. So, people who have large heads should think twice before choosing a buckram baseball cap.

2.    Brim: Flat Brim or Curved Brim

Usually, the curved-brimmed baseball caps have a great effect on modifying the face and mostly wear straightforward. The flat-brimmed baseball caps have no curve for the neck, so it’s more suitable to wear a flat-brimmed baseball cap backward. Of course, both types of baseball caps can be worn straight, left 3-5 cm from the hairline and eyebrows. However, most celebrities do not wear them that way because of their poses and shots.

3.    Pattern: Plain Color or Patterned

Plain baseball caps are a must-have for everyone because they are fashionable yet versatile. Just having a few or one of them is enough for dressing up. What’s more, plain baseball caps sometimes include two-tone styles. When choosing a plain baseball cap, just pick the one that matches your complexion. In general, plain baseball caps come with logos that are simple, confident, and classic.

Patterned baseball caps can be divided into embroidered or printed baseball caps, including printed letters or printed patterns. When choosing a baseball cap with complex patterns, it’s suggested to choose simple and plain outfits to avoid being too messy.
