Hat Glossary

Brim
Also known as the visor or bill, the brim is your friend that protects your face from the sun. It's most often made of PVC plastic, sewn inside the fabric (canvas, cotton, wool, and what-have-you, and keeps its curve even after it's been washed.

Buckram
This is the liner inside the hat that gives it structure and form. Our "relaxed" or "low profile" hats have no buckram, so the cap is softer and more relaxed.

Button
Right at the top of the hat, keepin' it together, man. The botton holds all the panels together.

Closures
Closures mean exactly what they say: They close your hat in the back. Our fitted hats are just sewn up in back, while our adjustable hats have a variety of closures made most often out of Velcro, plastic, hook-and-loop, fabric snaps, elastic bands, or leather straps.

Embroidery
The sewn-in stuff that decorates your hat that is most often raised and sewn into the front and back of a hat, with your favorite team logos, brands, and team names.

Eyelet
The little holes in each panel that allow your hat or head to breathe. Most hats have eyelets, made of either metal or just reinforced stitching.

Panels
The six or eight different pieces, sewn together, that make the cap of your hat.

Stitching
The thread along the seams of each panel; it can be either a contrasting color or a matching color to your hat.

Sweatband
Only found on some hats, not all, the sweatband runs just along the inside and insures that sweat doesn't run down your face!

On-Field
Molded after the classic on-field style of major league baseball. They're 100% wool and have a firm, reinforced buckram.

Fitted & Low Profile
Come in True Fit sizing, with two silhouettes. The 59/50, which is the authentic on-field cap of major league baseball, sits higher on the head, while all other Low Profile aren't as deep, with smaller buckram, so they sit lower on the head.

Adjustable
Hats with an adjustable closure in the back. They're stylish and fun and one-size-fits-all, so there's no size guesswork!

Easy Fit
Are made of softer fabrics, like brushed cotton, and have no buckram, so they have a more relaxed look to them. They're a casual hat-about-town, perfect for the student, weekend hat-wearer, even the collector, since we have loads of different brands and team names.

Easy Fit Fitted
Come in four sizes: S, M, L, and XL, so they have no adjustable closure in back. These cool cats come in a variety of teams, brand, and colors.

Easy Fit Adjustable
The one-size-fits-all form of the Adjustable, the Relaxed Adjustable is the first name in total comfort, flexibility, and casual chic. Just pick your favorite teams and brands with no worries about sizing!

Fedora
This hat looks like the classic driving cap. Available in an assortment of fabrics.

Visor
Visors are cool in more ways than one. They keep your head clear and cool for any outdoor activity.

Bucket
Like a fishing hat. Great for guys and girls, it comes in many different fabrics.
