Over the past thirty years, the baseball cap has emerged as a powerhouse amongst hats, evolving from a sports accessory to a universally accepted part of our casual wardrobe. It has been adopted by virtually every social stratum in the country, from disaffected teens to celebrities to software moguls to middle-aged, middle-class moms and dads to retirees. We wear ball caps to make a statement; to show an allegiance; to shade our eyes from the sun; to look and feel sporty or hip; to be part of something larger than ourselves. We wear them backwards, forwards, and sideways, tilted at various angles. They are a simple but ingenious product - inexpensive, utilitarian, and aesthetically pleasing. Village Hat Shop is proud of the baseball cap... America's greatest contribution to headwear.
