What is a snapback?
The history of the snapback was given rise from the american sport baseball, but don’t get it twisted this is not baseball cap. Although the two are similar in nature, they do have differences. The snapback gets its name from an adjustable strap or as we like to call it “snap” at its back, which makes it a one-size-fits-all style. Baseball caps, on the other hand, are fitted and cannot be adjusted. Snapbacks also have a flat peak and six panels that make up the cap and result in a high dome toward the front. This shape provides the snapback with its unique appearance and a larger space around the cap to allow for premium customisation with print, embroidery and badges.

How to wear a snapback
Wearing your snapback forward is the most common and classic position. Its safe to say wearing your snapback forward presents a clean appearance and stylish fashion statement especially with streetwear outfits creating that urban style. However a more confident man can also wear one backwards. Be careful though because if your outfit is not on point your look can appear to be outdate if your snap is worn in the wrong way or with the wrong outfit. To pull off wearing a snapback backwards, pair it with modern and contemporary styles and designs. Also, remember to keep your outfit casual as the look projects a relaxed and carefree attitude. Aim for an urban style with streetwear and be sure to wear the cap high on your head on a downwards slant backwards.
