I will introduce you to the fantastic world of Snapbacks, or those flat brim hats so famous among young people.
But how was Snapback born? This hat was born in the United States, when baseball players wanted something that would protect their eyes and improve their vision if there were adverse situations on the pitch like a scorching sun or heavy rain that didn't allow them to see the ball.
From a functional garment, it quickly became a hallmark for the team.
In the 90s, however, the term snapback was coined, the baseball cap was revisited with the addition of a rear band that adjusts the width of the hat.
Soon this garment becomes a fashion accessory especially among boys and in the HIP-HOP culture; celebrieties, sportsmen and ordinary people got crazy for this new trend.
The peculiarities of this accessory are precisely the back band, the button attached to the upper end and the small eyelets open on the sides to ensure freshness to the head.
