Keep on truckin' in this cult classic among caps, the trucker hat. With a heady choice in headwear, there's a reason the trucker hat keeps coming up on top.
If you're new to the trucker hat, here's what separates it from the rest of your cap collection. A trucker hat's closest relative is the baseball cap. Generally, a trucker hat's design typically includes five panels, a bill, a high-rise front that makes its structure stand straight, and plastic mesh backing. A trucker hat stands tall and proud among the land of other hat styles because it's usually taller than most other caps, although the modern trucker had now comes in many heights. There's more variation, though. Some argue trucker hats should have a flat brim, while others say it must be curved. There's debate whether a snapback is necessary or not. And there's foam versus hard front panels. Here's what's undeniably true. A true trucker hat absolutely has to have that iconic mesh backing. While it started out for breathability and keeping truckers and other hard-working men and women cool, now it's also about looking cool.
If you love that retro look and feel of a trucker hat, you brought back this trend from its 1960s start. You're probably wanting to rock the one-size-fits-all snapback and a bent bill. You'll always be able to keep that signature trucker-style strong with our looks, like the Yupoong 6606 Adult Retro Trucker Cap. With 18 colors to choose from, 11 of which are the contrasting colors most celebrated in a trucker hat. Among those contrasts are modern options, like a red-black mix or an orange-khaki blend. Just because you like the original doesn't mean you can't reimagine it. The FlexFit 6511 6-Panel Trucker Hat also offers more color options in a similar throwback look.
For another arguably throwback, choose a foam front with a flat brim, like the Big Accessories BX030 5-Panel Foam Front Trucker Cap. With its 9 colors to choose from, there's the primary-on-white contrast or the uniquely modern color combos. Why this look so celebrates its heritage is that foam front. Trucker hats were king of the road in the beginning because they were usually promotional items with companies that printed their logos directly on that bold white front. Times haven't changed in how inexpensive and easy it still is to print on that foam front. Keep it classic with a white foam front, bring it to today with a contemporary color combo, or even just keep it all one color. Just don't bend that brim.
Anyone who wants a fresh and modern take on a trucker hat, there are plenty of options. Easy does it with new relaxed and unstructured looks. The Big Accessories BA601 Washed Trucker Hat intentionally fades its colors in favor of a hat that looks like you've truly had it forever. The Comfort Colors 105 Unstructured Trucker Cap goes easy with an unstructured front on a normally rigid trucker's hat. It also fades those formerly crisp colors with washes in interesting colors, including various denims. And modern isn't always about looks, such as utilizing environmentally friendly materials, like the econscious EC7095 6-Panel Trucker in a hemp-cotton mix and the econscious EC7070 Eco Trucker Organic/Recycled Snapback Cap in a certified organic cotton, both with recycled polyester.
