Although 5-panel hats have a similar look to baseball hats, it is another hat entirely with its own unique history.
The name 5 panel comes from the five different pieces of cloth sewed together that meet on top with a button. There is one panel that goes sideways following the bill, making it a perfect blank space for a logo.
The 5-panel hat usually sits higher on the head and has a square look compared to the classic baseball hat design.
When the baseball caps were invented in the 1860’s, many variations were created as a result of that initial design. Some had long bills, some had solid bills, some turned into funny caps with propellers on the top, some turned into trucker hats, and some turned into the 5-panel hat we know today.
All of these variations changed the different caps out on the marketplace.
The 5 panel stayed subtle and low-key as a streetwear item through the years until skateboarders in the 90’s started to wear it.
Compared to other hats, it stayed secure on top of their heads while they flipped over obstacles, so it quickly became a common hat in their community.
These hats became such a part of their culture that almost every skateboarding company through the years has produced a 5-panel hat at some point.
Skateboarding at the time hadn’t exploded on the main scene, so although it was popular within their community it wasn’t found in many other places.
It wasn’t until the 5 panel was on national television that interest in this hat grew.
Anyone who watched TV in the 90’s probably remembers scenes with Will Smith rocking his blue and yellow 5-panel hat on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Those scenes, combined with skateboarding’s growing mainstream popularity through the years, are two of the main reasons that we know this hat today.
