So a bucket hat is a plush cotton hat with a thin brim that can vary in coverage size. Women and men wear the same style of hat which is generally uncommon in the clothing industry. Not much like a baseball cap, the bucket hat, or Fisherman’s hat, has a leading edge, and then a trapezoidal shaped, shade edge. These hats are typically composed of a thicker material, like an elastic weave made, and then two sides that may have a ring hole made of metal so that people who wear these hats in the summer will have air flow to keep them cooler. Ultimately, the brim size is what distinguishes the look of a bucket hat. Some have a small, flat brim while others have a wide brim that can be turned up or down. Closer to today and what made it gain popularity in pop culture, the most famous person who wore a fisherman’s hat in the early days was Gilligan, from Gilligan's island. Unless you took a liking to journalism and then you would also know that Hunter S. Thompson also donned a cotton bucket hat nearly year-round. The well-known character, Gilligan, in the 1960s comedy appears on screen in a bucket hat year-round. The positive association between enjoying the show and growing fond of Gilligan helped the popularity of the hat soar. The reversible bucket hat is one of the most versatile hats because it can be worn two ways. Tie dye bucket hats are perfect for adding a pop of color
Originally, Bucket hats were first worn by farmers and fisherman in Ireland and they were popularized and played as a large piece of fashion in rap and hip-hop during the 1980s. As all equally functional and comfortable things do, they made their way to be used for military purposes. The practicality and durability of bucket hats made them top priority garments of clothes during the second world war to protect the soldiers from sun and disease. They also proved useful in muting the glare when aiming with firearms. They have now managed to make their way around the world and be worn and adored by everyone everywhere. Especially within the music-lovers crowd. Along with our Gen Z hydration pack, reversible bucket hats are a great way to stay cool, comfortable, and protect yourself from the sun. But why stop there? at Electric Wave, we have a huge selection of bucket hats that are perfect for any rave. And since they are reversible you're basically getting two hats in one.
