There is more to a Cap than most imagine. Let us explain the differences between styles of hats so you can make a more detailed purchase.

Cap Descriptions and Styles

Peak | Bill -
Peak of cap is the part of the cap that extends from the base over the front blocking the sun from you face. Also known and referred to as a Bill.

Crown -
The Crown of a cap is the front part of the hat which starts from your forehead of hat to the top of your head. Available in Low Crown, Mid Crown and High Crown.

Unstructured Caps -
These styled caps are most commonly your classic style cap and are relaxed fit panels rather than constructed side panels. They have relaxed fit structured crowns but constructed bills.

Fitted Caps -

Adjustable Cap -
Caps that have an adjustable back, such as fabric snap or velcro fastener. Usually OSFA (one size fits all)

Stretch Fitted Caps -
Commonly caps that are constructed with 3 - 4 pre defined sizes that stretch to you a perfect fit. Sizes available range from S/M, L/XL.

Sometimes also called snapback hat when worn as a fashion item, is a type of soft cap with a rounded crown and a stiff peak projecting in front.

Cleaning Your Cap

Looking after your caps ensures they last the test of time both structurally and cosmeticaly.

Most hats can be washed in a standard dishwasher machine. Thats right your not seeing things, in a dishwasher. You will need to ensure though you do not use ANY detergent or chemicals in the machine and your cap is positioned on the top shelf of machine. Gently scrub any stains with a damp cloth once your hat has been soaked in warm water. We sell Cap Cleaners, click the link to find out more. Ideally we suggest you consider this cleaner to maximise cleaning results. Don't forget that caps made from Wool will need to be cleaned using cold water. Always put your hat in the shade to dry, this will eliminate your favourite cap from fading by the harsh sun and elements. We also recommend that you consider a Cap Cage when washing your hat in the dishwasher or clothes washing machine, to ensure your cap or hat keeps its shape.

Cap Storage

For best storage results to promote shape and condition, we recommend your store your caps in a Cap Carrier or Cap Compartment or in a drawer. A multi compartment Shoe Hanger is also a perfect cap storage caddy. Never store your caps in a luggage bag or under clothes or items. This will destroy the integrity of the cap and its Bill, Crown and Panels.
