A Brief History of Dad Hats
If you’re a 20- or 30-something, then you’re probably intimately familiar with the dad hat. You may not know it by such a name, but with a bit of thought it should be obvious from where it’s derived: Your dad.
Dad hats are exactly the kind of hat that your father probably wore on weekends growing up. They’re floppy, less structured cotton hats with a slightly curved bill and embroidered stitching–probably a small logo–right in center.
They were an iconic promotional item for golf events, restaurants, and other companies throughout the 80’s and 90’s.
But these aren’t just a throwback–dad hats are hip, too. Perhaps because of the nostalgia associated with them, these hats are now often spotted on athletes, musicians, and celebrities around the world. They’re quickly replacing flat-billed, fitted caps and even New Era snapbacks in many crowds.
As they say, fashion tends to be cyclical. In this case it seems the millennial generation is simply walking in their parent’s footsteps.
Why Order Custom Dad Hats?
Dad hats offer a uniquely comfortable and casual fit and design.
They’re less structured than other hats, making them conform to the shape of just about any head. There are no sharp seams or edges that can rub against the scalp.
These hats feel right at home with either a polo shirt or a t shirt. And despite their comfortable and casual nature, it’s not uncommon to see them worn to more upscale restaurants or clubs. They’re generally seen as a dressy-casual accessory and can fit right in at all but the most formal of settings.
