There are many questions we get asked about Yupoong Dad Hats, and they usually start by asking what they are and how they got their name.
What is a dad hat?
A dad hat is a panelled baseball style cap with a curved visor and a closure at the back to adjust it to fit the head size.
Why is it called a dad hat?
As the name implies, dad hats were named because they used to be mainly worn by middle-aged dads.
Perhaps no one really knows why, but for whatever reason, people into hip-hop in the 1990s began to wear dad hats. They became part of the hip-hop uniform worn by both hip-hop artists and fans.
Now their popularity has spread far beyond hip-hop. Trendy celebrities including musicians Drake, Kanye West and Rihanna have been spotted and photographed wearing dad hats.
Beyoncé, for example, has her own customised Lemonade hat.
