Following the hottest August Bank Holiday ever recorded in the UK we thought it was important to remind everyone that we logo plenty of headwear as well as clothing! For hotter days Portlantis can supply baseball caps, bucket hats, outback hats, sun visors and even straw hats – so whatever your preference we can keep you cool, safe, and branded with your logo.
Unsurprisingly the baseball cap originated in the US. In 1860 the Brooklyn Excelsior Baseball Team wore a round top cap with a long peak and by 1900 the caps were very popular amongst all types of sports teams – a trend which then spread into the workplace. Today baseball caps come in all colours and lots of fabrics – cotton, polyester, hi vis and air mesh. There’s plenty of choice when it comes to the size of the peak and “snapback” peaks are increasingly popular.
Most British heatwaves are short-lived so when the weather turns colder attention will switch back to beanie hats. Whilst there are literally hundreds to choose from there are only two basic decisions you need to make if you are choosing a beanie! Do you want a turnback on it ?(Most people do as logos look so much nicer on a turnback). And do you want a knitted beanie or a fleecy beanie? (Most people go for the traditional knitted beanie).
