Fitted caps have their place and so do five-panel caps, but what about the traditional six-panel baseball cap, like this indigo number from the French brand A.P.C.?
Though the modern six-panel baseball cap came into its own in the 40s and 50s, the original baseball cap actually dates back to the mid 1800s. At the time, the Brooklyn Excelsiors, an amateur baseball team in Brooklyn, began wearing a cap with a long visor and button top in 1860. Until the 1940s, the “Brooklyn-style” cap that the Excelsiors wore was the defacto cap.
Fast forward to today and the six-panel cap is no longer solely associated with baseball teams. In fact, fashion brands have adopted the shape and made it their own. This indigo denim baseball cap by APC adds texture and refinement to the classic athletic staple.
Constructed with Portuguese cotton, the Louis Cap (likely named after A.P.C.’s co-designer Louis W.) has a bonded cotton lining and an adjustable leather tab with a metal buckle. The headband and seams are also reinforced with a grosgrain band, so you needn’t worry about it falling apart or becoming lose on the head.
Whether you need an incognito ball cap to run errands or something to top off an outfit this summer, consider this one from A.P.C.
