The ‘90s called and your favorite hat is back – the snapback – and it is ready for another go around.

The snapback’s history lies in baseball and gets its name from the adjustable “snap” in the back which makes it a one-size-fits-all icon. It features a wide flat brim and six rigid sections that create a high dome toward the front. The shape is distinctive. It can only be pulled off with the right attitude – if you aren’t feeling confident then it just won’t work.

Snapbacks can be a work of art when paired with a smart casual outfit and worn in the right venue. Wear it facing forward for the classic look, or wear it backwards to achieve an edgy look. Wear it forwards with the brim slightly askew for the youthful devil-may-care-urban look.

When it comes to pulling off the snapback hat, there are a few important rules to follow. And the rules are definitely not the same as they were in the ‘90s. First, never ever (repeat never ever) crease the brim of your snapback. And resist the temptation to bend the brim (and if you do, ever so slightly). Donning the hat forwards is the preferred trend, especially for the older guys. Be sure to wear the hat high on your head with the brim on a downward slant. And feel free to wear the hat backwards when you are active (example: riding a bike). No sideways caps. Ever.

Finally, remember the logo/brand on your snapback. It must be in the right location. The Vulcan logo in its various forms is distinctly appropriate for your snapback hat. It is a conversation starter. It speaks to your sense of style, your hobbies and priorities, with irony and wisdom. It is a brilliant accessory.

While this hip-hop staple may no longer look great with baggy jeans and an oversized t-shirt, you can pull off this statement-making hat with the right attitude. Vulcan has several designs for snapback hats available on the website; make your statement today.
