You may have heard some hype around the trucker hat in the media lately. The reappearance of this trend is due to some celebs who have been sharing their love for the classic trucker via their social media channels. Kylie Jenner, an influential trendsetter, was seen earlier this month repping the trucker hat as a part of her sport luxe outfit. Her big sister Kendall has also jumped on the bandwagon, and I think we all know what happens when these fashion icons start on a trend. The trucker look is going to be mainstream very soon, and we think everyone should be embracing this trend.
Trucker hats have an intriguing history; originating from farming supply companies who handed out free promo hats to farmhands and, you guessed it, truck drivers. Essentially, they are a type of baseball cap, with the token mesh panels in the back. Traditionally they have the classic baseball shaped curved peak, although in today’s fashion environment you’ll find trucker hats in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials. As per baseball caps, trucker hats can be 5 panel or 6 panel, depending on your design. This trend is making a strong comeback and we expect men, women and kids to be sporting their Truckers this year.
Traditionally made of nylon, trucker caps can be a cost effective option when buying custom wholesale hats. The mesh panels at the back make them a great summer hat and are popular among the surfer crowd, or even as sports caps. The mesh comes in a wide array of colours; from block colours to patterns and even glitter. Check out some of our mesh swatches below for some ideas on how to customise your wholesale trucker hat order.
The coolest thing about Trucker caps is that they can be the classic structured design, or you can change every area of the hat except the mesh back panels – and it?s still a Trucker! Examples of our previous wholesale orders below showcase just how versatile a trucker cap is. Incorporating a straw front panel really encompasses a traditional trucker hat. Put a modern twist on the design with an epic sublimation print or a soft suede peak, which is guaranteed to turn customer’s heads. Taking a hot commodity like the trucker hat and putting some unique features on it is key to leveraging the trucker hat trend.
