Baseball caps getting crumpled on the right side - Page 2

post #16 of 29
One size fits all/most hats are not real baseball uniform caps. They are fashion hats in the shape of baseball caps. Baseball uniform caps are fitted and have a hatsize. It's not just for the professionals either. My highschool team wore real fitted caps. Our uniforms may have been a little loose or tight because they only came in 3 sizes, but the caps fit us right. Buy a real baseball cap in the right size for your head and see if the same thing happens. Real baseball caps do not include the pink, red, or light blue NY Yankees caps even if fitted. They include only the game colors for the teams.

Baseball caps are for baseball and cheap business incentives/advertising.

Pith helmets do not come in my size.

Therefore I wear leather football helmets when I go outside.

The baseball hat shown in the picture of Joe Torre, the one mentioned as 59FIFTY, and the fitted baseball cap worn in highschool have a stiff lining in the front two panels that allow them to keep their shape. Have a look at the underside of a "real" baseball cap (the New Era 59FIFTY) and you'll see what I mean.

Your caps are fine, they're just likely made of a non-stiff fabric and don't have a lining to keep the front panels "up". To be honest I don't like the look of those caps with stiff front panels; they sit way too high for my liking (though some are lined with a more rounded shape). A cap is an extremely casual accessory. I wouldn't worry about the "getting crumpled"; it just adds to the casualness.

If it's a major concern for you, I would suggest buying caps that have a stiffer fabric or lining in the front panels, which you really can't determine unless you're buying it in person and can touch/feel the fabric and/or see if it is lined in the front.

You mean more along the lines of a "trucker cap" without fabric instead of mesh?

Did you really refer to Joe Torre as "this guy"? Honestly, I don't even like the Yankees but you shouldn't be allowed to wear a baseball hat.

I have the exact same problem. Its the shape of our heads, I think. I don't know precisely what the issue is but almost all of my hats collapse a bit like that. Must have something to do with the specific curvature of our heads that puts pressure in some areas and doesn't in others forming the dip.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the logo. If the logo is leaning towards the right side, it will cause the left to cave. It's science people!!

I cant believe that baseball caps are being discussed on a style forum. The hint is in the name. STYLE The biggest blight on the American stylistic landscape alongside underwear-exposing jeans is ubiquitous baseball caps. Solve your problem by throwing all the bastards out and if you must wear a hat then get a man's hat.

Calm down man - I wear it on the beach... I don't go there dressed up in a tuxedo

As for the "this guy" comment that someone referred above - I apologize for being so ignorant of US sports culture - I'm not from the US...

If its a cap you wear to the beach, honestly, don't worry about a dimple in the hat. Even the finest and most stylish gentlemen will want to throw on a weathered, well-worn, comfortable cap when appropriate. Fussing over it is exactly what makes it lame.

Try wearing them on the left side then, or better yet take the tread to the streetwear room.

If you're right-handed you may be attaching (stapler?) les chapeaux with more pressure on the right side, causing an unsightly and no doubt embarassing polyester indentation, or "crimp" in the vernacular - thus diminishing invaluable street "cred," or "face", and risking humiliating "diss".

Try stapling the left side with your right hand and vice versa - or cricket caps.
