It’s hard to imagine a world without baseball caps. That’s probably because the accessory has become so ingrained in our daily life that it’s often the first accessory that we jump to on a daily basis. Originating on the baseball field, obviously, the baseball cap has shifted from a functional sports accessory to an everyday essential thanks to its accessibility. Much like a graphic T-shirt, a baseball cap is an easy way to rep your brand, team, or city overtly, making it an almost tribal accessory.
But, while baseball caps are still used to represent, they’re not all emblazoned with team insignia or symbolism. If you’re not looking to mark yourself out as a born-and-bred Yankees fan, there’s a wealth of less partisan pieces. Whether you’re looking for designer baseball caps or something basic to cover weary eyes, selections from Nike, Off-White™, and more will satisfy the desires.
Off-White™ kicks off this round up with an overdyed grey number that’s got the feel of being a genuine vintage baseball cap. A minimal embroidered logo punctuates the front and provides a focal point.
Palm Angels’ coveted gothic text logo graces the front panels of this designer baseball cap. Although the cap is purple, a faded effect ensures that it’s neither too bright nor unnoticeable.
