Best Fitted Hats of All Time
The Criteria Used to Decide the Best Fitted HatsThe Criteria used to determine the best fitted hats are as listed:
- Design - Are the designs simplistic and minimal or are the designs more complex, intricate and creative.
- Identity - Is the fitted hat identical or very similar to designs created in the past? Is there a noticeable difference and what range is that difference.
- Purpose - Was there a meaning behind the cap, some significant event that took place that inspired the creation of it, or was it simply created because a new design was needed.
- Material - Are the materials used to create the fitted cap different than the common polyester that is typically used or are other rare materials used.
- Hand Made - Custom made hand-stitch designs on a fitted hat are more special than a machine stitch design is. Consumers put more value on a hand-sewn design.
