Today we’re looking at even more headwear trends in the promotional space.
We’ll also look at how one cap company is stepping up to help recent hurricane victims.
Historically, men wore hats every day; it was a staple in their outfit. Many believe that tradition died when President John F. Kennedy didn’t wear one to his inauguration in 1961. This paved the way for the baseball cap we know and love today.
Can you imagine putting a logo on a Pork Pie or Panama hat?
Beanies and other knitted hats are gaining more traction in the promotional space. These are especially valuable to industries like construction that spend a lot of time outdoors, particularly in the winter months.

Codeword or (code)word is a hat company that makes hats with a city’s area code emblazoned on the front. It donates a portion of every sale to a children’s hospital in that city.
In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, The Hat That Gives Back™ stepped up to make TEX and FLA caps donating 35% of each sale (instead of the normal 20%) to the Houston Food Bank and the South Florida Food Bank.
Their website boasts that one cap purchase will provide 21 meals to hurricane victims. So far, they’ve been able to afford over 80,000 meals.
