I’d Cap That

Michael Clair shares a very interesting look at the the long, strange history of the baseball cap, and how it went from not even being a thing in baseball to being ubiquitous. “We can go to a seminal moment in the late ’80s when NWA emerges, particularly when Eazy E emerges in the White Sox hat … It’s one of those things that went from being something that was associated very strongly with where you’re from, and very strongly with being a fan of the sport, to transcending that and saying a statement about cool and saying a statement about aesthetics and saying a statement about athleisure and lifestyle.” If that’s a long way of saying it’s a great way to cover your bald spot, then I agree.
