The trucker cap came about in it’s true form in the early 1970’s as a promotional give-away from U.S. feed or farming supply companies to farmers, truck drivers, or other rural workers.
The wide front panel made it an ideal platform for emblazoned company logos and at the same time functional, practical and cheap. It soon became part of the ‘uniform’ of rural workers all over the States. The combination of the stiff, long peak with the comfortable foam front and the breathable mesh back meant that the cap not only protected the wearer from the sun but it readily absorbed sweat too.
The practical cap worn by truckers and farmers soon became a staple of blue collar uniform and an iconic symbol of Americana.
Our take on this icon comes in two styles and are both done in the classic five panel trucker construction; wide foam front panel, four mesh back panels that provides ventilation, and the snap-fastening allowing you to adjust for the perfect fit.
