11 Vintage Trucker Hats That Are Making A Comeback

Baseball hats, flat caps, bucket hats, fedoras, cowboy hats, pageboys - you name it, they’ve had their moment at the forefront of trends, and trucker hats are no different. Do you remember those early Y2K days when everyone and their uncle wore trucker hats, even to the kind of occasions where a trucker hat definitely shouldn’t fly?

We have fond memories of Ed Hardy and Von Dutch truckers gracing the heads of the biggest celebrities, and honestly we never thought we’d see the day when trucker hats would make a return. But, being the hipsters we are, we love seeing old-school trends coming back to life and we’ve started dusting off our own trucker hats for wear. You might be wondering how you can make trucker hats look stylish at any level - and the advice we have for you is: as long as you aren’t pairing them with wifebeaters then they should look okay.

Take a look at our selection of vintage trucker hats that would be worthy of your hipster crown.
