A classic design, the snapback has seen a recent rise back into the fashion world where it is adored by both celebrities and the public in equal measure.
The snapback caps first rose to fame in the 90's in America where it became especially popular in Los Angeles and New York. In these early years, the popularity of the hat was largely due to being worn both by famous musicians and sports stars.
The main advantage of the snapback closure simple plastic design is its flexibility, making the hats one size fits all. This system also makes the cap durable since there's no additional metal parts that can break off.
The 6-panel caps are a standard as far as baseball caps are concerned. This style of hats represent a majority of the snapbacks on the market as well. They are made of 6 triangular panels of fabric woven together.
As 6-panel hats are simply a stitching style, they can be found with diverse closure like fitted, snapback, strapback or even flexfit.
Unlike 5-panel caps, the extra panel on this style of hats give them a slightly different shape and higher profile. This vintage style dates back to the authentic ballcaps of the '50s.
The origins of trucker caps, as it’s name suggests, are implanted firmly within the trucking community. They often sport a snapback type of closure with a curved beak and meshed back. The trucker cap became popular with truckers when farm supply companies began giving them away as a promotional give-away. Truckers would be the ones delivering the supplies for these companies and picked the hat up while they were doing so.
Since the trucker cap shares the plastic size adjustment system of the snapbacks, it makes it a very practical hat in terms of durability and breathability. This combination of practicality and style had made trucker hats stay in popularity for years.
