Headwear has a different value for each and every of us. To some a cap is something to wear when it's cold or to drive the car when you are facing the sun but to some others headwear is an exact science. Fitted, strapback, dad cap... are these words unknown to you? Then you are ready to approach our guide to caps.
This part of streetwear is actually borrowed from sportswear, considering that the first snapbacks were actually baseball caps. All of them originally had a green under visor, actually because it is the best color to properly refract sun rays.
The first memory that we have of a cap with strong links with music is Suicidal Tendencies trucker cap. Before there were official ones, you had fans of the band doing their own Suicidal trucker with stencils or markers. You call trucker a lightweight snapback usually with the front panel made of foam or canvas and the back made of net. It is called in this way because at the beginning they were cheap promotional items, therefor mostly worn by truck drivers.
The following step is the sporty snapback: baseball players layed the foundations with their uniforms for a key part of the streetwear outfit. This means mostly New York Yankees or Los Angeles Dodgers snapback, like the 9fifty by New Era or Mitchell & Ness styles. When the snapback has a little strap made of leather or fabric to adjust it, then it becomes a strapback.
At the very beginning visors were curved, then around 1978 New Era placed its first ad for 59fifty caps in a magazine, eventually available to the public through mail order. These are commonly also called fitted caps. With a stiff crown and a straight visor, 59fifty marked the golden age of hip hop, with every Newyorker MC or DJ wearing one. The upgrade with these caps was that you had to wear your size, measured in inches. Having no hole for the closure on its back makes this shape a little more elegant. For the above reason you have a sticker in the visor that says 7 1/2 or 7 1/4 or 7 3/8 and so on.
Then you have stretch crowns like those from New Era called 39thirty or 9thirty: fitted caps, with a straight or a curved visor according to the style, made of stretch fabric. Sizes in these case are not in inches but small/medium or medium/large.
To fully understand what a Dad Cap is, just think about those  Polo Ralph Lauren  unstructured caps of the early 90s. By unstructured we mean without a stiff front of the cap. So even if technically a New Era 59fifty fitted is superior quality wise, now it's time for smooth and unstructured crowns, curved visor and a little logo in the center (just like Polo back then). Did you check the Move Dad Cap already?
As a last headwear piece from our proposal, we wear beanies during cold weather. Long or short, cuffed or not we think that you can pick up your style pretty easily here.
