The twenty-first century has witnessed a cap craze. Nearly every facet of society has embraced its own version - from rappers to punk rockers, cyclists to baseball stars, hipsters to high fashionistas. In Caps: One Size Fits All, Steven Bryden explores the evolution of the cap, tracing its roots from functional item to fashion must-have. Filled with expertly shot color images, the book features interviews with cap connoisseurs and icons of cap fashion, including Supreme's Aaron Bondaroff and Craig Ford, owner of the London BAPE store. It explores the design and construction of caps, and the incredible array of brands and types: from baseball to 5-panel, painter cap to the Pittsburgh bucket, Ralph Lauren to Stussy. The book also peers into the closets of avid collectors, tracks the cap's journey through pop culture history and includes street style photos showcasing how people are wearing caps around the world today.
