The iconic trucker caps are making a bold return but, did they really ever leave or are the cool kids just making it their own?
Sitting taller than a traditional baseball cap the trucker cap’s front panel is inserted with foam creating a constructed front profile. Curved or flat peak, it’s up to you, the trucker looks great either way. And the choices are almost endless. Trucker caps come in 5 panel or 6 panel designs, the difference being an extra panel in the front with a centre seam.
There are truckloads of options when it comes to fabrics, from classic cotton twill and nylon, to custom designed and printed fabric, the latter being a great way to create a unique look. Nylon profile at the front is the traditional fabric to use but, who says you can’t create a new tradition. Customised fabric may also include a sublimation print, heat embossing or take the form of all over embroidery instead of a print. Customised fabric is a good way to let your cap speak for itself; style and brand image is reflected throughout.
Logo application is like tyres on bitumen, the only way to have a great ride. Matching your logo application to your custom trucker design is the only way to have a great product. Leather patches are a schmick way of showing off your brand, classic embroidered patch logos are popular without fail and metal badges are adding diversity to the mix. Regardless of how simplified or how detailed, your logo can be tailored to suit your specific requirements and brand essence.
Everyone has a preference as to how they wear their trucker cap; there is no right or wrong way, just as long as you wear it your way. You can choose how you profile the trucker cap, wear it high like a trucker, wear it back-to-front, or wear it closer to your head for a fitted look.
