A sleek and effortless hat is like the cherry on top of the perfect outfit. While baseball caps are a dime a dozen, the brimless docker hat is a conversation starter. And naturally, we’re pretty partial to them. Let’s take a look at the history of the style, some key elements to look for in purchasing one, and lastly some of the docker caps we have for sale.


While it may seem as if docker hats are having a moment in fashion right now, they’ve actually been around for a few hundred years. Docker caps are dated clear back to the 18th century. This tried and true model of headwear is not only a style choice, but it’s also practical. Dock workers favored this hat shape because it clung tightly to their heads, shielding them from the wind and other elements. Depending on the weather, they could roll down the thick brim to also shield their ears. The overall shape has remained nearly the same over the years. Really the fabric choices are the main deviation from the original design.

Style Elements

When it comes to choosing a docker hat, think about when and how you’ll wear it. More specifically, consider the climate in which you live. Different fabric types work better for different weather. If you plan to wear your hat in the winter, perhaps invest in a thicker and heavier fabric option. And also look for a design where the brim can be rolled down to cover your ears. We also sell beanies so be sure to check those out for even more warmth.

As for design, the sky is truly the limit. Since a docker hat is a statement piece, think about your overall sense of style. Do you want a bold pattern, a funky fabric, or something sleek and simple? Of course, you can always have more than one. We offer plenty of variety.

Our Hats

We take great pride in the docker hats we sell and aim to deliver sleek and on-trend fashions that’ll serve you and your style well for years to come. We were very picky with fabric choices and the overall designs and hope you love them just as much as we do.

A few of our favorite designs include

– The corduroy docker hat is the thickest fabric out of the three. It can still be worn in the summer months, but it might also be a great option for those in cooler climates. It’s available in four different colors and has a chocolate brown adjustable strap in the back.

– The logo style cap is where we get a little funky. Yes, there are solid colors available, but we’ve also thrown a fresh paisley pattern into the mix. This hat comes in a whole array of colors. Taste the rainbow.

– Last but certainly not least, is the bold striped docker hat. The three stripes on the wide brim of the hat are undeniably sleek and eye-catching. We offer this model in five different colors. If you’d prefer a clean and simple look without stripes, we offer that as well.
