This post is purely experimental to help me gather some data, but I hope it’s informative and helpful. We’re going to explore some weird trend that is… very 2019. Cool Dad Hats (this may be an oxymoron).
What is A Dad Hat?
Simply put, a Dad Hat is an all cotton baseball cap. But it’s also so much more than that. We’re not talking fitted caps, mesh trucker hats, or cool snap backs. We’re talking totally mundane cotton caps that look like they are a little too big. Maybe with that strap to tighten it up. You probably know a cool dad hat when you see one. They have that slightly curved brim.
Examples of Cool Dad Hats
So if you’re in the market for some dad hats, here’s the kind of thing to look for. There’s no such thing as a “best dad hat.” Just gotta find the right one for you (or, you know, your dad).
The Adidas Men’s Original is the OG classic cool dad hat. This faded denim wash and throwback Adidas logo screams dad.
The Pineapple Dad Hat from KBETHOS is another great dad hat look. This cap has all the dadness with a hint of irony attached. It comes in lots of colors, and you can also get it with a rose instead of the pineapple.
That’s all there really is to say about dad hats, to be honest. The best dad hats are simple, unassuming, and ironic.
Other Hipster Dad Gifts
Is there a style you’re going for? Here are a few more good products I think fit the mold of “Cool Dad Hats” that you can use to beef up the dad wardrobe.
Vans High Tops
Another hipster dad wardrobe staple is the Vans High Top skate shoe. You don’t have to be a skater to feel at home in this tried and true shoe. Along with a cool dad hat, you’re literally outfitted from head to toe.
Dad Bod On Point T-Shirt
Big bold text and highly ironic message. This dad t-shirt will round out the cool dad hat wardrobe. Comes in a few different colors and will have your dad laughing ironically every time he puts it on.
