Some say these humble headpieces are not to be worn by anyone over the age of 11. Just kidding. With certifiable luxe brands like Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Nahmias, and Miu Miu reinterpreting, refining, and imbuing them with possibility, it's safe to say baseball caps have become a menswear staple.

From Leonardo DiCaprio to A$AP Rocky to Denzel Washington, just about every prominent male figure has been spotted at least once stunting these bad boys. Not to mention, with celebs like Rihanna, and Gigi Hadid, the construction of the line that constitutes a 'masculine' wardrobe and the attribution of 'feminine' clothes radically diffuses here. These lightweight garments are ideal for securing a sleek yet humble off-duty appeal or simply trying to keep a low profile from the paps.

Born from the 1860s team, The Brooklyn Excelsiors' desire to cover their face from the sun came the first version of the cap we now know and love. Transitioning from the original design made of straw to merino wool eventually landing itself in the cotton blueprint. These lightweight staple pieces have manifested themselves into the garment piece of assertiveness and self-possession. Evoking the capability to elevate an ordinary, simplistic look to an entirely new level of fresh. Whether you're a designer fanatic or simply searching for something cool, stylish, and don’t know where to begin, we’ve got you covered.
