First developed by the Brooklyn Excelsiors in 1860, the baseball cap became widely popular by 1900 and has over the years been seen in the overall attire of baseball players. It has now however developed into many variations of style and has become a popular men’s fashion item to own.
A baseball cap either comes ‘fitted’ with a plastic, Velcro or elastic adjuster, which allows the cap to adapt to the wearer’s head size.
This type of hat was the ideal match to tie-dye T-shirts and baggy jeans in the 1990’s, but recent seasons have seen the style work its way into various modern urban fashion.
For a contemporary streetwear look, try wearing solid coloured longline tees or vests in preferably black/white, slim jeans/joggers, and a pair of sick sneakers. Alternatively, opt for a plain colour baseball cap and combine it with a shirt and some tailored shorts. Stay clear from ones with heavy bold prints on them. Bright coloured ones like yellow and green are not easy to the eye, so don’t go for those. Keep it simple and you will look great!
