Custom Dad Hats

A great way to put off a chill vibe is to add your design or logo onto custom dad hats. The name says it all--your dad wears this cap--probably on the weekend when he is wearing his sweatpants , drinking coffee, reading the newspaper and just chilling out. But now dad hats are for more than just dad's. These have become popular amongst a younger crowd and now these hats are accepted by all age groups. Custom dad hats are a great way to promote your business or team with a nice soft unstructured hat that fits the form of your head and shows your logo in a classy hip light.

What Is A Dad Hat?

What is actually just a baseball cap somewhere along the line got renamed a dad hat. No one knows why but the term was funny because it described the type of hat that we would imagine our dad's wearing. Although dad's still wear these hats they have become really hip with the younger generation and both musicians and skaters have made this timeless polo cap look cool to everyone. A dad hat is just a relaxed 6 panel unstructured cotton twill hat with a strap closure and a slightly curved brim.
