The Cap – A brief history

The cap, or hats in general, can be traced back thousands of years, and one of the first pictorial depictions appears in a Greek Tomb hundreds of year BC. The image in the tomb painting shows a man wearing a conical straw hat.

However caps more similar to the ones seen today began to be worn in the late 16th century. Hat styles varied massively over the years the best quality hats were made in Milan the 18th century.

In the first half of the 19th century, flamboyant hats were popular; decorated with ribbons, flowers, feathers, and gauze trims. However it was in the second half of the 19th century when the first baseball style caps as we see them today were worn.

In 1860, the Brooklyn Excelsiors wore the ancestor of the modern rounded-top baseball cap, and by 1900 this style of cap became popular. In the 1940s latex rubber became the stiffening material inside the hat, and so the modern baseball cap was born.

We have caps that are suitable for both adults and children with various methods of fastening available.
