What Can We Call This Kind Of Hat?
Some other options besides “dad hat”—you’re welcome.
Recently it came to my attention that a certain kind of hat is back in style and that, unfortunately, we are calling them dad hats. Even famous non-dads’ merch websites, like Beyonce’s merch website and Kim K’s merch website are calling them that. “Dad hats.” Having already suffered through a lifetime of calling things “dad jokes” (why?) and more recently “dad bods” (again, why?) are we sure it’s not too late to call these hats something else?
Here is a list to start:
“The Classic Hat”
Not exactly a snap back, but similar
Trucker hat, but no mesh
Hat with words on front (or not!)
Head? Where? (Because there’s a hat covering it)
One of the most basic kinds of hats
