The dad cap, the six-panel cap, the baseball cap, whatever you want to call it – this sartorial artifact has always been culturally ubiquitous, but it has enjoyed a real trend-centric renaissance more recently.

Once synonymous with the corporate executive sharpening his backswing at the country club, it’s now touted by street style impresarios around the world and every single relevant hip-hop artist in the game, from Kanye to Drake and even eternal bad gal, Rihanna, are all fans of the reliable dad hat trend.

It’s fair to say this traditionally unstructured, unassuming cotton cap is having a real moment and has been rehashed on runways as haute-y as Balenciaga and Gucci, too.

Seriously, it’s high time you hung up the snapback in favor of something more universal. It looks good with any fire ‘fit, and it should be your headgear of choice. We’ve rounded up a variety of today’s de-facto cool cap for every budget, so you’re bound to find one that’s right for you.
