The History Of The Cap: From The Sport To The Fashion

The accessory began to become popular in the nineteenth century, appearing on the head of baseball players in the USA

Did you know that the popular cap began to be worn even in the nineteenth century by baseball players?The famous accessory that makes the head of young people, adults and children has already been very different from what it is today.

According to threergroup, the first “apparition” of a cap-like accessory was long ago: in 1000 BC, in ancient Rome. When they were released, the slaves wore a sort of cap (a cone-shaped cap with one end dropped to the side), as a sign of freedom. During the French Revolution, in the late eighteenth century, the accessory was renamed “bonnet rouge” and became a symbol of the republican party. In the Middle Ages, a kind of hooded cap was worn.

“Baseball hats”

But the cap as we know it began to gain popularity even in the nineteenth century, with its use by baseball players in the United States. The cap is used today in the sport to protect the players’ eyes from the sun’s rays.

The first baseball caps were made of straw. Then they were made of a kind of wool. The baseball cap called “# 1” had a star drawn at the top and was used by amateur teams.Depending on the material with which it was made, it could cost from a few cents to two dollars.

In 1889, then-famous baseball player Albert G. Spalding (who gave birth to the famous sportswear brand Spalding) released a baseball manual and included in it an ad with the different types of baseball caps of the time (see figure) . The Detroit Tigers were the first to put the team logo on the front of the accessory around 1901.

In fashion

With the popularity of the sport in the USA, the caps began to win the streets. In the 60’s, they gained vivid color and prints. In the 80’s, they excelled in dance clubs with embroidery and satin fabrics.

Today, caps are in the heads of people of all ages and in any situation: whether to protect from the sun on an afternoon of fishing, to manifest the style of the young or to advertise the brand of a company. The accessory follows fashion trends, and fits any style.
