Solid Color Caps -
The visor on baseball caps has undergone significant changes over the years. Those alterations ended in the 1950ís when the modern 3 inch visor became the standard it is today. In the early years the bill was soft, crushable and short, affording relatively little protection from the sun, but making up for that in the convenience of pocket-stuffing. The early soft visor was modified in the 1920ís, becoming stiffer and slightly longer. The 1930-38 style with a 2 Ĺ inch visor is a cap of unique wearability in sturdy wool flannel and does not seem unduly dated.
All caps in this section have a round, soft-crown, of athletic wool flannel. Inside is a hair canvas front backing and leather sweat band. The 2 ĹĒ visor is firm and has a dark green wool underside.
