Is it a Hat? Is it a Cap? Your Ultimate Guide in One Photo

I’ve been meaning to establish a “Thesaurus” series for so long and finally decided to get on with it.

I love photos that serve as a specific “thesaurus” with specific themes. I will be posting such photos every now and then. I think they’re great and really enrich one’s vocab.

It’s always good to know what each item’s name is.

The subject here is hats, only not all headpieces are called hats.

Check out the different names, and if you have other expressions, don’t hesitate to share them in the comments section!

    Thanks for the work you have done collecting these! Looks fine and funny! You might also mention that a baseball cap is sometimes called peak cap (guess it is mainly BrE), and is called a trucker’s cap if the peak is flat (imagine some gangsta-rapper). I would also be happy to see some aviator’s hat (the one with flaps, you know) – it is cold where I live, we have to wear them in the winter))). And then don’t forget the Sherlock -style cap. Not seen really often, but deserves to be mentioned for having a personal name))) Hope you’ll find the remarks useful, sorry if not)

      Hi Denis,

      I’m glad you liked it! To be honest, it wasn’t me who collected them. I stumbled upon it on the internet and I can’t seem to remember where. I saved the photo on my laptop a couple of years back and I have similar photos which I happen to come across on the web so I will be sharing them regularly.
      Also, thank you so much for the remarks. I love the aviator hat πŸ˜€

    The Sherlock Holmes style is called a deer stalker. The oldest hat shop in the world is in London (Lock & Co whom we can thank for the bowler hat). Here’s an interesting glossary (http://hatsuk.com/hatsuk/hatsukhtml/bible/glossary.htm), just one of many. Interesting origin of name for the ten gallon hat. Hat names can get confused with proprietary names as well.

    ‘Bobble’ is also called ‘bonnet’ in the UK and ‘beanie’ in the UK and SA.
    Add “balaclava”, “casque”, “helmet”, “kipa” and “kufiyeh”.
