Why are these caps called Trucker?

In the 1950s, the ESSO company and the Shell company had a big dispute over the trucker market, who wanted them to refuel at their stations.

What did ESSO do? He thought, I'm going to give every trucker who comes a cap with my company logo. But the difference was in the creation of the back of the cap, I created a net or mesh, because the trucks of that time did not have air conditioning and the temperatures were unbearable.

Trucker caps are a specific style of caps that feature a rigid front and a mesh back. These caps are popular in trucker culture and have become a fashion accessory in various contexts. Here are some common features of trucker caps:

1. Rigid front : The front of the cap is usually rigid and can be made of different materials, such as cotton, foam or polyurethane foam. This provides structure and support to the cap.

2. Mesh Back : The back of the cap is made of a mesh fabric that allows for ventilation. This feature makes trucker caps comfortable to wear, especially in hot weather.

3. Front panels : Trucker hats typically have front panels on which patches, logos or other custom designs can be placed.

4. Adjustable closure : Many trucker hats have an adjustable closure at the back, usually with a snap or a strip of fabric with a Velcro closure, which allows the cap to be adapted to different head sizes.

5. Retro and casual style : These caps are often associated with a retro and casual style, and are popular in outdoor activities, sporting events and as part of urban fashion.

Trucker caps have gained popularity not only among truckers, but also in everyday fashion and popular culture. Their distinctive design and versatility have made them a fashion choice for many people.
