A bit ill-fitting, fairly wimpy, a little dorky:  All characteristics of the dad hat, a trend that’s currently approved by the fashion crowd, but has been championed by khaki-wearing padres for decades.

A distinct affront to snapbacks, oversized flat-brims, and other so-called “cool” hats, the dad version will typically have a corporate logo, a dumb saying, or a random graphic, usually made from somewhat flimsy cotton or canvas.

That cap you bought at the hotel gift shop because you forgot your straw Panama ? Check! That baseball hat on the floor of the closet that came in the gift bag at your last work conference? Check! That too-small “nerd” cap that looks like it came from central casting, and may as well have a pinwheel on top? You get the point.

You might kid yourself and think you’re wearing yours ironically, but the fact is—when paired with your high-waist Levi’s wedgie jeans, a straight-from-the-skatepark hoodie, and a sick pair of Nikes—you’re smack in the middle of the direction fashion is headed right now, so you might as well embrace it.
