Snapback vs fitted hats: the battle of the baseball cap family
Now it is the time things get a little spicy, as these two hats take a punch of each other.
Let’s see who goes down first.
Snapbacks are well known for their versatility. They don’t pick and choose outfits; they can go with any outfit choice.
If you want that street swag style, saying you are the king/queen of what you do, just snap-it-back any day.
The first argument for fitted hats is that they do not feature the plastic enclosure at the back.
Really? We thought the enclosure is what gives snapbacks their style edge and why big stars like Jay-Z cannot resist them.
Anyway, that is our opinion and it is not the gospel truth.
The lack of enclosure on fitted hats gives them a cleaner round finish.
That is quite a plus if you are looking for custom hats.
- Fashion relevance and endurance
There is a long rich history of snapback hats.
They became popular in the ’90s and have not looked back since then.
The pop culture would not be as we know if it were it not for snapbacks.
They came and took over the scenes and remained true to that cause.
Today, snapback caps are on a resurgence that is going to keep them at the helm of hat fashion for a long time.
Like it or hate it, snapbacks are going to be around longer as long as hip-hop culture is going to keep ruling entertainment circles. No debate about that.
Fitted hats may have come into the fashion scenes way before the snapback.
But they relaxed and the crown was taken from them and it is never coming back.
For that throwback feeling, fitted hats are still the undisputed options. But that is as far as it goes.
You do not expect the young heads to put on an old school cap over their head and go to a club.
Forget about it. Only old heads still trust the fitted caps. About popularity in the modern fashion space, snapbacks are more relevant and will outlive the fitted caps.
We could be wrong, but things look gloomy for a fitted hat resurgence ever happening in the future.
