23rd January 2018The trucker hat style – a complete breakdown

TRUCKER

Is the trending trucker right for your brand?

Trucker hats have been a staple style in the headwear world dating back to the 1970s. Although they were originally recognised as a promotional giveaway item, the humble trucker has rightly earned its spot on the fashion stage, whirling into mainstream success during the early 2000s.

The trucker cap is distinguished by the polyester mesh, rear and side panels (which allows the head to breathe). They usually have a snap adjuster to the rear of the hat, although this isn’t a vital part in the design. Flat peak variations are also available, making the trucker design more acceptable with streetwear fashion.

A potential trending product?

In the early 2000s trucker hats were extremely popular and seen on the shelves from many well-known brands such as Ed Hardy, Von Dutch, DEUS and Vans.

Is this iconic hat returning to its former glory?

BIG BRAND TRUCKERS

We have already seen celebrities such as David Beckham, Rita Ora and Kylie Jenner embrace the style. Maybe because of celebrity endorsements the Trucker hat has had a strong resurgence on the high street. Major league retailers like Topman, ASOS and Two Seasons have regularly added this style into their ranges.

TRUCKER CELEBS

We have already seen an untamed hat trend return in recent years, in the form of dad caps. A beloved trend that saw everyone from Barrack Obama to Donald Trump rocking the style.

Will truckers follow the same success? Only time will tell.

The different types of truckers

Traditionally, trucker hats are foam fronted with a 5 panel shape and have polyester mesh side and rear panels. Today however, variety is on your side! 6 panel truckers, sports sneaker mesh and contrasting fabrics are all available at your disposal.

Here at SL Black Label we of course have our own trucker hats, ranging from traditional styles, to high street icons and to activewear essentials. There are plenty of truckers for your brand, in our headwear ranges.
