Kids' Caps & Hats
Whether for casual getup or sports attire, caps have managed to find its way into the fashion and lifestyle of people around the world. By nature, caps or headgear serves a variety of purposes such as protection - against heat, cold, impact, rain, sunburn - medical and distinction.
One of its many types, and popular across age groups, is the baseball cap. The origin of said headgear can be traced back to 1860 then to the 1900s when the 'Brooklyn style' cap became famous.
But the birth of the modern baseball cap as we know today happened in the 1940s, with latex rubber being used as a stiffening material inside the hat. To protect a player's eyes from the sun, the bill or brim was added in the design for this purpose.
Before, baseball caps came only in standard sizes and one-size form. Advances in textile materials paved the way for the strict-fit design, which utilises Lycra or rubber to allow it to have a fitted design while maintaining adjustable feature within sizes.
Currently, baseball players wear caps as part of their uniforms. Outside the field, police officers and the military don caps as well for protection and adhere to uniform protocol.
It's worth taking note that the cap has become a fashion accessory since the 1980s and continues to take its place among the youth movement amidst ever-changing trends.
