PILLBOX FASHION HATS!

Recommended Posts

A pillbox hat without rings is called a panel hat.

The presence of "rings" or "stripes" has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not a piece of headwear is a pillbox hat. The term "pillbox" refers to the hat's shape, not whether it features rings/stripes.

That said, the hats you linked to in your original post are nothing more than hideous bastardizations of true baseball pillbox caps.

They're still the best fashion hats I've seen yet.

fashion hats: bad

pillbox hats: usually bad

regular hats posing as pillbox hats, particularly these: terrible

Pillbox hats are like little pots. These are not pillboxes. Your love for all hats even resembling pillbox makes me question your thinking even further than I previously did...

I think the problem I and others might have, is that its instead of looking at these at fashion hats, for a lot of teams, they're basically throwbacks hats that aren't even close to accurate.

I like the idea, but would prefer the actual pillbox style. I also think these have the potential to be a bad victim of New Era's inconsistencies. I can't imagine they all line up in the store -- even some of these pictures look off.

I have a Cubs pillbox somewhere... need to dig that out.

I got me a Nationals pillbox -- one of those they sell in Union Station. Decent quality, too. The dome hats with stripes don't cut it for me.
