The Trucker hat got its name from truck drivers in the United States. During the 1970s and 1980s vehicle manufacturers and agricultural machinery manufacturers gave out trucker hats as advertising to truckers. Hence they began to be used to a large extent, became iconic, and then spread to other audiences.
During the 1900s, they spread widely to fashion, streetwear, and snowboarding. In the beginning, it was a huge trend, and the American brand Von Dutch was very popular. Von Dutch succeeded in revolutionizing the industry with their trucker hats and these truckers dominated the hat industry for a time. The trend swung the other way eventually, but today the trucker hat is still a popular enough hat model that almost all brands choose to have it in their collection of hats.
A trucker hat is characterized by the net covering the back and sides. This offers great ventilation and prevents your hair from getting flat and sweaty. Trucker hats come with both straight and curved brims. The curved brim is more popular than the straight brim tho.
Today trucker hats are still very popular among truck drivers in the United States. The roots of the trucker hat are still alive in other words. In fashion, it is a permanent feature, represented in many brands. Hats are available in simple models with either a small, embroidered logo or fabric patch, but also hats with larger motifs and patterns printed across the front of the hat are very popular and common in trucker hats. Trucker hats have also always been popular within surfing as a result of the function and the relaxed look of a trucker hat.
