Bucket hats are made of soft fabrics and have short flexible brims. They are commonly worn as fishing hats in the summer, and usually have two holes at the side for ventilation. Wearers often use them for shade by pulling the brims down. Bucket hats may be made of denim, canvas, twill, or nylon.
Types of Bucket Hats
Kinds of Bucket Hats include the following:
Men’s bucket hats
Men’s bucket hats are usually large and made of thicker fabrics, such as denim and canvas. They are commonly available in cowboy, camouflage, and newsboy cap styles.
Women’s bucket hats
Women’s bucket hats are smaller and made of light, delicate fabrics like cotton and silk. They are often embroidered and feature sun or floral designs.
Choosing Bucket Hats (Buying tips)
Material. Choose a bucket hat made of durable fabrics that will not tear or fade easily. For outdoor use, choose a lightweight canvas hat with side eyelets. Look for those with sturdy stitching and reinforced brims.
Fit. Choose a bucket hat that fits comfortably over your head. If you are using it as a fishing hat, choose a tighter fit or look for one with chin straps. For casual use, a looser fit is more stylish and comfortable.
