What is a Dad Hat?



Dad hat is a baseball cap with six or five panels, the front panels unstructured with a simple logo.



Born in the 1970s as people started donning 6-panel baseball caps off the field, quite popular among middle-aged men, which helped them build their name. 


How to wear

First, choose the right color. Neutral colors such as black, white, gray, brown, and blue are for this kind of item. A creative quote, “Fresh color for a fresh start.”Colors have meanings, so choose the right one matching your personality and style.


Second, choose the right graphic. Personality matters much; they typically feature embroidered pictures, logos, or phrases. Shop online platforms such as Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Etsy, Shopee, etc, for your right product.

What is a Baseball Cap?


A type of headwear made from wool, with a flat top and no visors for protection. Ear flaps can be worn up or down depending on wearers.


Baseball caps are usually 6 or 5 pieces, round crown, structured, hard top, with adjustable plastic buckles on the back, velcro or sheet metal buckle to fit various head shapes.

2. Population. The younger generation usually prefers baseball caps, and dad hats are often considered worn by parents, while the trend is now shifting.


3. Style. Washed vintage, retro-style dad hats are loved by many. At the same time, baseball caps are more diverse, such as satin lined, camo, tie-dye, etc.
