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 Choose a Snapback

Selecting a snapback is definitely down to personal preference. Our Foxberry Boys snapback collection comes in a variety of designs and colourways, you can always find the right one for you by picking one that suits your personality and style. If you find you are struggling to choose, think about your desired look you are going for and go from there. If you’re interested in sports, you can choose our Trademark Fox Logo snap or if you prefer a minimal aesthetic, try a more simplistic design. However if you are still struggling to find your style or new to the cap game, why not stick to a simple and classic design like our Foxberry Boys Signature design in black. This way we guarantee your cap will compliment whatever outfit you pair it with.

The Snapback Hip-Hop Look

The history of Hip-Hop music gave rise to the snapback style. The rappers cool attitude and outfits go well together with a edgy snapback making them a popular must have accessory. Choose a snapback that makes a sleek and bold statement, such as our FXB design with white embroidery. Make sure you wear it with the brim facing forward and complete your outfit with an oversized, graphic tee, ripped black jeans or shorts, and sneakers.

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.

Finally, remember there are a few rules to wearing snapbacks.

  • Never wear a snapback with formal clothing.

  • Do not bend the peak, they wear made like this for a reason. If you would like a curved peak cap we suggest you go for our very popular Sports Luxe Baseball cap.

  • Do not twist your snapback sideways, straight forward front or to the back are the only ways.

  • Remember your age, if your wearing a snapback at an older age, you may appear to be hanging on to your youth. But who are we to stop

All Eyez On Me Tupac Biopic Movie Shows the Resurrection of Early 90s Streetwear Fashion

First of all we just want to say straight off the back Foxberry Boys thoroughly enjoyed watching the 'All Eyez On Me' biopic movie of Tupac Shakur. And cast members Demetrius Shipp Jr (Tupac Shakir) and Kat Graham (Jada Pinkett) did a great job playing these roles. Foxberry Boys are a massive fan of the late Tupac Shakur and watching the resurrection of US streetwear fashion such as Karl Kani and Walker Wear clothing brought back fond memories. We remember learning about Tupac in the early 90s watching him feature in a track by Digital Underground called 'I Get Around' on MTV cable box set channel programme called 'Yo! MTV Raps' . Tupac eventually branched off to be a solo artist, with most of Tupac themed songs revolving around hardship and social issues within the inner cities.

Tupac very much felt he was the voice of the people and what he stood for inspired the youths of today and most of his music is still relevant in today's society. in the early days we quickly noted Tupac's love for streetwear and his snapback he would wear backwards throughout most of his career which can be seen throughout his biopic movie.

The 90s saw the introduction of the 3 sided embroidery snapback merchandise during this decade because of the rise of HipHop and Rap music. This was heavily influenced by the artists who used to wear their snapback to the back.

Since then the snapback still remains an essential staple piece accessory within the modern day consumers wardrobe for everyday use.

Foxberry Boys definitely gives the 'All Eyez On Me' Tupac biopic 4 stars and the only reason why it wasn't a 5 star is because it was hard to squash his entire life into a 2 hour movie and most of all their will only ever be one legendary Tupac Shakur.
