There are a number of baseball style caps that are worth considering for your embroidered logo.
Very simply put, constructed caps have a piece of material called “buckram” in the crown that helps hold its shape.
Constructed caps are very popular for athletic teams and uniforming for companies.
Unconstructed caps do not have this feature which is one of the reasons unconstructed caps are called “floppy caps”. The crown lies more against the forehead.
These are much more popular with people. We sell way more uncontructed caps that we any other style.
The flat bill is a constructed baseball cap style that has become popular in the past few years. It is probably most recognized as a symbol of the hip hop culture-worn mostly by young people looking for something different. It is a very personal cap and that reflects the style and attitude of the wearer.
The defining characteristic is represented in the name. It is the large flat bill on the cap that gives it a very distinct shape.
Everything old is new again, right? One style that has made a comeback the past few years is the mesh back or sometimes called “trucker caps”. Mesh back caps come in mostly constructed styles but unstructured styles are available and popular as well.
The defining characteristic of the mesh back cap is the back 4 panels of the caps are made of a mesh material that allows air flow to the head which keeps the wearer cooler in warm temperatures.
Another relatively new style the past few years is that of the distressed cap. The distressed style caps are mostly unconstructed and feature a look that makes it appear as though the cap has been worn a lot over the years even though it is a new cap. Distressing caps has become popular in the past few years as people seek items that are vintage or old looking.
There are a number of different ways to distress a cap to make it look worn. All of which are very interesting.
Most baseball style caps are “one size fits all” and feature some kind of adjustable closure on the back that can be made to fit most heads. Fitted caps do not have a closure, instead they have an elastic band that stretches slightly to fit heads of different sizes. Fitted caps are mostly a constructed style cap and are associated with baseball but many others love the look and feel of a fitted cap.
Fitted caps general come in different sizes. Most come in M/L and L/XL. Some however do come in S/M, M/L and L/XL. Most adults wear a M/L but we always recommend trying one on before buying to make sure you get a fit that is right for you.
