Trucker Hat Background

A Trucker Hat is a part mesh cap with a single panel across the front and adjustable plastic snap closure at the rear.  Also named ‘Feed Caps’, these were often promotional giveaways for farming and trucking companies such as John Deere before becoming fashionable in the early 2000s.  The front panel is often made of foam with the rear of the hat being a plastic mesh. The brim is often curved. It is suggested that celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher, Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell Williams made it popular, while comedian Judah Friedlander and DJ Andy C have been wearing the hats for years.
