As its name suggests, the history of baseball caps for men originated on the baseball field. The style was derived from other forms of brimmed hats, including  jockey caps, military caps, fedoras and boaters. The first baseballs caps were crafted from wool and featured a leather peak. They were worn exclusively by baseball players in the mid- to late-19th century, before being adopted more widely in the 20th century.

Today, caps are integrated into everyday attire and endure as a go-to accessory for everyone from sports fans to style-obsessed celebrities. While most commonly crafted from breathable and durable cotton canvas, many brands are experimenting with fabrics like wool, linen and even recycled materials. The cap has evolved from the merely functional to a stylish smart casual staple.
