4 Stylish Dad Hats for Big Heads

4 Stylish Dad Hats for Big Heads

Though we previously answered the question, What is a dad hat? - we thought we’d better rephrase it here for any newcomers. 

Dad hats are just a simple 6-panel baseball cap with unstructured front panels and simple logos. They’ve been around for years, but only recently have they been attributed with their own name and style. Dad hats lack the frills of snapback, trucker, and fitted caps; quite simply, they are something your dad would wear.

In this article, we share with you some dad hats for big heads.

Our Oasis dad hat in olive color is one of our absolute must-have dad hats for big heads. We created the Oasis hat out of our sheer need for a dad hat in our product line. The supple, buttery twill fabric of this cap is soft and comfortable, making it the perfect hat for everyday wear. This is the Oasis you’ve been looking for.  

Why did we name this comfortable-fitting dad hat Oasis? 

Every journeyman requires a go-to cap. And just as an oasis is a pleasing sight in the desert, Banner & Oak’s Oasis hat will always be there to shelter you when you need it most.

Before moving on to some important specs of the Oasis hat, we should mention that it comes in two different colors: olive (as previously mentioned) and black. 

The olive color is easy on the eyes and couples well with an afternoon in the woods or a warm morning on the lake. The black Oasis hat looks good for more general wear - an evening out on the town or exploring the city - but will also protect you from the sun out on the trail or water.

Both the black and olive Oasis hats contain the following specs, making them a must for anyone looking for dad hats for big heads:

  • Flat Stitch Embroidery 
  • Solid Back Panel Construction 
  • Tuck Closure with Banner & Oak Branded Brass Clip 
  • Six-Panel, Low Crown Shape 
  • Unstructured Front Panels
  • Moisture Wicking Sweatband 
  • 100% Cotton Buttery Twill Fabric

Our line of ladies fit dad hats, Trek, also comes with a signature dad-hat tuck closure on the back, making it ideal for larger heads. 

The name of our Trek hat is inspired by the idea of getting out there and pushing ourselves beyond our boundaries. Whether it be summiting a mountain, hiking hot canyons, or undergoing a challenging trail run, we believe you have the power to unleash the beauty of the raw and rugged backcountry. 

Here we share the signature burgundy-colored Trek dad hat. It has been described by buyers in the Banner & Oak community as “a perfect burgundy.”
