The baseball cap is a pivotal accessory with the beginning of spring.
Since the 50s it has been part of the MLB team uniform but from the 70s it has established itself as an indispensable item even off the field, becoming an icon of many celebrities, as in the case of the New York Yankees hat worn by Jay-Z. Even the cinema has made extensive use of this item, like Bubba Gump one worn by Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump, or that of Dustin in Stranger ThingsDonald Trump has made it a symbol of his electoral campaign and the high fashion brands do not give up including it every season in their collections.
