Solid Color Caps -
The idea of making the front two panels of a baseball cap in a contrasting color has its origins in the flamboyance of barnstorming, Negro League and softball teams (in the latter case, sometimes even in satin). The design helps emphasize the logo and as team insignias became standard in the late 1920's and early 1930's, this style dates from then, but perhaps reached it's apex in the 1980ís when feed companies originated the lurid designs of the trucker, mesh, stand up cap.
The standard 1940's, soft-crown, wool flannel cap with contrasting color in the two front panels. Inside is a horsehair front backing and leather sweat band. The 3Ē visor is the modern length and comes with a dark green under visor. A perfect cap for attaching your own logo.
