Choosing Hats and Baseball Caps

A quality summer hat can be both practical and stylish, providing protection from the sun whilst also serving as a great accessory to many an outfit. Yet with so many styles and designs to choose from it can be difficult to know which one to buy. Here we take a look at a few that are proving popular this summer.

Firstly we have this Vintage Snapback Cap. Defined by its flat peak and snap fasteners, the Snapback is a retro design which acts as a wardrobe staple for many. The plain white panelling on the front of the cap allows it to be easily customised with print and embroidery. Available in a variety of colours, this Beechfield cap is on sale at the incredible price of just £2.70.

An arguably even more classic design is that of the Baseball Cap. Suited to many styles, it is worn as much for casual wear as sporting activity for example. One particularly iconic cap is the New York Yankees Baseball Cap. Whilst seen in many forms, we offer the classic Yankees design, fitted with a velcro strap and made from 100% cotton to provide extra comfort.

If a cap is not for you, however, there are a multitude of other styles to choose from. The Fedora is particularly stylish hat, which has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent years. This Fedora Hat is styled in the traditional way, being creased lengthwise down the crown and pinched in the front on both sides. Available in both black and white, the white hat with a black trim would be particularly suited to this time of year. Worn with a jacket or fitted shirt, this would be a great hat for summer garden parties.

For those who enjoy filling their summer days in the garden or walking, the Cargo Hat with UPF50 Protection provides a practical and affordable option. It is made with a towelling sweat band with mesh lining for extra comfort and fitted with an elasticated drawcord to easily adjust size. It also offers UPF50 protection against sunlight, an essential considering the current climate!

Lastly, an ideal hat if you’re working in the sun all day. This Folding Legionnaire Hat is made from 100% plush cotton. With a three section fold-up peak and two eyelets on either side, this comfortable hat will keep you protected from the sun.

Adult Caps

Baseball caps are popular headgear for both men and women. They come in a variety of styles and colours and can match any casual outfit. Adult caps are perfect for days out at sporting events or the beach, and are often worn as everyday head wear.

Choosing adult caps as a gift can be confusing as there are so many styles and designs from which to choose. Plain block colours are ideal in this situation. The Adult Plain Baseball cap has an adjustable strap making it ideal for most adult head sizes. It is also one of the most affordable in the range of available caps.

If buying for someone with a particular taste, then perhaps the camouflage caps would be more suitable, or maybe even a cap that is patriotic, such as one of the England, Scotland or even Brazil styles. Distressed fabrics can also give a vintage look and are perfect for a dressed down, casual look.

There is also a range of sun visors that many people prefer. This style allows the wearer to keep the sun from their eyes without having their head covered. Very popular with lady golfers, these come in a range of colours to match any outfit.

The Old Course St. Andrews design adult caps and the official New York Yankee caps both come in a variety of colours. These along with a cap commemorating the England World Cup win of 1966 will make excellent gifts for any sports fan.
