Varsity headwear is made of wool fabric. This cap comes with six panels and ventilation eyelets, six rows of stitching on pre-curved bill, and self-fabric strap with chrome buckle. Strap back adjuster with chrome buckle completes the cap’s stylish look.
A varsity headwear is used to covering the head. In the past, hats were an indicator of social status. In the military, hats may denote nationality, a branch of service, rank or regiment. Police typically wear distinctive hats such as peaked caps or brimmed hats, such as those worn by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Some hats have a protective function.
As examples, the hard hat protects construction workers’ heads from injury by falling objects and a British police Custodian helmet protects the officer’s head, a sun hat shades the face and shoulders from the sun, a cowboy hat protects against sun and rain and a Shankara fur hat with fold-down ear-flaps keeps the head and ears warm. Some hats have religious functions, such as the miters worn by Bishops and the turban worn by Sikhs.
