The humble baseball cap is a cheat code when it comes to styling. Even in its most simple form, it caters to both form and function — adding a cap to your fit can round out a look while also providing much-needed protection from the sun (gotta keep this skin looking fresh). But the best part of hats is without a doubt, the price.
Affordable hats are everywhere and you don’t need to look far to find cool cheap hats. Whether you’re looking to tap into a higher-end brand like Neighborhood or find your everyday unassuming staple, you can cop it all for under $50.
Below, we’ve gathered the best cheap caps for you to shop. From a 90s-feeling Carhartt x A.P.C. collab, an ode to Colette, or a Grateful Dead trucker hat, we’ve got you covered.

Stüssy Flight Nyco Low Pro Cap
The Nyco Low Pro Cap comes courtesy of one of streetwear's OG brands, Stüssy. The hat is branded with an alternate Stüssy logo on the front and features an adjustable fit. The black and white colorway allows for easy matching, too.
We just dropped the adidas x Highsnobiety ZX8000 Qualität, a collab sneaker that blends simple design with the highest quality materials. To coincide with the release, we also created a collection of staple clothing that follows that same ethos. This cap from the capsule arrives in 100 percent brushed twill cotton with a white embroidery HS logo at the front.
Call Me 917 Hot Dice Hat
Skater Alex Olson's Call Me 917 takes inspiration from the unforgettable skate graphics of the ‘90s and early ‘00s for the Hot Dice cap.
PLEASURES Olde Polo Cap
It's rare that you find corduroy and suede coming together on a baseball cap. PLEASURES makes it work, though, with an adjustable design that is outfitted with the brand's logo in an Old English font. If you're looking for a cap that can be dressed up a tad, this one's for you.
Arc'teryx Bird Baseball Hat
It's always a good idea to have an all-black option in your headwear collection, because you can wear it with virtually anything. And coming from Arc'teryx, you don't have to worry about the quality. The brand's Bird Baseball Hat is a universal style with that unmistakable logo embroidered on the front.
Gramicci Yellow Umpire Cap
Yellow is a seriously underrated color — it’s bright (so it lifts your mood) and as we previously wrote it’s a shade synonymous with summer, the sun, and positivity in general.
The shade is also surprisingly wearable, and Gramicci’s mustard dad cap is an easy hue to style. But, if you’re not convinced, there’s also a navy version for the yellow adverse.
Paterson Paris Cap
The Paris Cap from Paterson will bring a splash of color to your ensemble, as the hat is offered in a minty green colorway. Multicolored branding livens up the cap even further, while a brown leather strap provides the design with another complementary dimension.
Converse x NNBHD Logo Cap
If you’re a fan of cult Japanese brand Neighborhood but can’t quite bring yourself to drop $60+ on a dad cap, this Converse x NBHD collab is your affordable option. The 6-panel hat arrives with a co-branded logo on front with contrast stitching.
NOAH Canvas Cap
NOAH's highly sought-after logo is on display front and center on this tonal baseball hat. Arriving in a deep orange colorway, the branding emerges via tonal embroidery. Around back, you'll find a matching adjustable strap with metal hardware.
Carhartt x A.P.C.
Carhartt is the gold standard of workwear so it makes sense the brand knows its caps — how else are you going to keep the sun out of your eyes? Now, teaming up with A.P.C., Carhartt has elevated its headwear game. The denim version gives us Britney and Justin at the VMA vibes, while the khaki stays true to the brand’s roots.
Grateful Dead Dancing Bear Trucker Hat
Following one of the most hyped Nike collabs in recent memory, the Grateful Dead’s various logos have been spotted all over the place, from LeBron’s pre-game fits to a collaboration with Crocs. This classic trucker cap features the band’s iconic teddy bears to the front panel.
Colette Mon Amour Hat
Designed with the iconic Parisian store (RIP) this hat comes in Colette’s signature Pantone 293 C blue. Pay homage to a piece of fashion history, while simultaneously repping Highsnobiety.
