What is a dad hat called?
A dad hat is a 5-panel (usually) baseball cap that has a slightly curved brim (pre-curved by the manufacturer), whereas a snapback is a 6-panel baseball cap with a flat brim. Both are meant to be one-size-fits-all that come with an adjustment strap in the back.
Why are caps called dad hats?
You may think the dad hat got its name because some really great dad invented it. Not so much. Middle-aged men were the people who wore these hats most often, so the name got generated because the style was mostly reserved for grown-up guys.
