Snapback hat. It is either you are for or against it. Personally, I am not for snapbacks. Seriously, that crummy, plastic thingy is super ugly and that’s not to mention, it is totally uncomfy when you wear the hat backwards. Amazingly, despite the obvious shortfall, snapback hat’s design hasn’t changed much at all for like, forever. Even some expensive designer labels used cheap plastic for the snapback, which is kind of a reap off considering how much designer hats cost. But thanks to the righteousness in humanity, someone stood up and decided that enough is enough, and it is time for a change. And that change is known as Snappies Hats (or just Snappies).
Snappies ditched the forehead-digging plastic straps in flavor of top notch materials like top grain leather and real brass snaps, and the result is, well… lets just say that it lets me see snapback in a whole different light. With leather in place of plastic strap, Snappies adds a touch of class to snapback hats which would be impossible with plastic. It is ridiculously stylish, whether or not you wear frontwards or backwards, or sideways, or whatever. I mean, seriously, just take a look at it. Tell me your heart did not flutter at the sight of a leather and brass snapback.
To be fair, there are non-plastic snapbacks, such as fabric (some with velcro, which makes us go, ‘really?’), but we just thought leather and brass are way classier. Period. The only caveat is, unlike the ugly plastic which has multiple holes for size adjustment, Snappies has just three. Then again, who’s head has such drastic change in size? We don’t usually make adjustment and we do adjust, it is to accommodate the changing hair thickness over time. Unless you anticipate a lion’s mane overnight, or in a couple of days, you are probably good with just three sizes.
There’s one more thing though; Snappies may not be as resistance to accidental tug like its plastic counterpart do, after all, it is a snap button. You can pick up a 5-panel snapback hat from Snappies website for 30 bucks a pop. Yes. We also noticed that it isn’t cheap, but I’d say you get what you paid for. But it’s your choice, really. Oh, there’s another must-mention: Snappies has teamed up with Pacific Pug Rescue, a non-profit organization that rescues and rehabilitates neglected and abused Pugs, to donate $5 for every Holy Pugamole hat the outfit sells. So, yeah, you’d be doing an awesome deed while your head gets the style it deserve.
