Find Quick Answers To Your Questions about Hat Terms below:
 
What does Structured or Unstructured mean?
> Structured means that the front two panels of the hat are supported by a stiffer fabric called "Buckrum" - it helps to maintain the shape of the hat
> Unstructed means that the front two panels of the hat are not supported - the hat is designed so that the front two panels "flop" flat when you set it on a table
 
What does Low, Mid or High Profile mean?
Profile has to do with the slant of the front of the hat
> Low-Profile - this is the least steep slant to the front of the hat and is normally associated with a sport or golf style hat
> Mid-Profile - this is a bit steeper slant to the front of the hat and is normally associated with what a baseball player would wear.  Additionally, this style hat tends to be a bit of a deeper fit
> High-Profile - this is almost a straight up slant to the front of the hat and normally associated with a "trucker" style hat
 
How does washed or unwashed cotton look?
> A washed hat will have a duller look and softer feel to the fabric
> An unwashed hat will have a more brillant fabric color and normally the fabric has a smooth finish
 
What are the different closures?
> Plastic Snap - two plastic tabs at the back of the hat that snap together to adjust your hat fit
> Velcro - two fabric straps at the back of the hat that Velcro together to adjust your hat fit
> Metal Buckle / Antique Brass Buckle - two fabric straps at the back of the hat where you feed one strap through a square style buckle that clamps down to adjust your hat fit
> Slide Buckle - two fabric straps at the back of the hat where you feed both straps through a buckle that slides to adjust your hat fit
Is one hat closure better than another?
It is strictly personal preference / most men prefer either velcro or one of the buckle styles / most ladies prefer the slide buckle as their hair will get caught in the Velcro
