How to wear a snapback?

I will give you some tip for wearing a snapback hat.

1
Take the sticker off the brim, for the love of God. You're not 50 Cent.
2
If you're going to wear a cap for the day, make sure hat hair isn't going to be an issue later on.
3
Wear it backwards seldomly and carefully. Never wear it sideways.
4
On the same note, make sure it's not cutting off your circulation. A big red line across your forehead isn't likely to elevate your look either.
5
Opt for simplicity over showiness wherever possible. A plain cap is classier and will go with more of your wardrobe.
6
Keep it clean—ladies rarely go for “grungy hat guy.”
7
Make sure it fits snug on your head. There's nothing like frantically chasing a windswept cap down the street to ruin your carefree look.
8
On the contrary, it's a huge indicator of your personal style, so embrace it and wear yours with confidence!

The history of baseball cap?

The baseball cap, a sports uniform staple since the mid-1850s, was actually not socially acceptable for non-sport wear until the late 1970s. Back in the 50s (the 1850s, that is) the very first baseball caps were made of straw and worn by the New York Knickerbockers. Thankfully (for them and the rest of us), they moved from straw to fine wool within a few years. The explosion of televised sports in the late 1970s and early 80s largely contributed to the acceptability of the baseball cap for the common wearer -- as did Tom Selleck sporting his Tigers cap in Magnum P.I. (There’s another one for trivia night. You taking notes?) The design details have varied throughout the decades, but the key elements remain the same: a bill to block the sun and a place to put a team logo.
