From its baseball diamond beginnings, the humble cap
has found its way in and out of countless sub-cultures – from skater boys
to, more recently, the stylish hip-hop elite. And although its core purpose is to shield your eyes from unwanted glare, the cap has become a year-round stylish accessory and not just a summer essential. The basic template has spawned many variations – five-panels and snapbacks to name but two – but out of all of the peaked hats, it's only the baseball cap that has remained a sartorial sure-fire winner.
