Why a personalised bucket hat adds style to your winter wardrobe - indeed custom headwear is cool at any time of year

The amazing thing about hats is they often have an illustrious history with a shape that's been determined through the ages for every good reason. And this applies to the Bucket hat - forgive the pun - the Bucket stops here ! It came into being for purely practical reasons. Nowadays it's deeply fashionable and personalising a bucket hat allows you to be distinctive and stand out with your own style from the crowd. It can also be a wonderful gift be it for yourself or for a loved one or friend. You can choose a colour based on your outfit and it can be worn at all times of year.

The practical origins of the (at that time) humble bucket hat, stem back to the intrinsic need to protect against the elements. Irish farmers & fishermen wore them from around the 1900's when they were made from wool felt or tweed cloth as protection from the wind and rain: the lanolin from the raw wool made them naturally waterproof and the wide downward slanting brim helped against inclement weather.

From the 1940's the bucket hat became standard issue for the armed forces to protect the soldiers' necks - and at that time through to the Vietnam war transitioned to being made from cotton fabric.

From the 1960's the Bucket Hat's been a fashion item. Popular with Rappers in the 80's it's been 'in or out' with the fashionistas. Rihanna, Michael Kors, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton have all espoused the Bucket hat in different forms. Even Ikea's opting to make them out of their plastic bag material.

So whether keeping on trend is for you or not, personalising a bucket hat has a timeless style and is an easy way to upscale your wardrobe. Simple initials or a logo look really good embroidered on cotton. You can dress them up to go out or you can match them with your casual clothing for a laid-back look. Plus of course they protect against the elements so work really well all year round. The wide brim and SPF-50 protection make it perfect for sunny days but the sturdy organic cotton twill will keep your head warm when the weather is fresher. Design options include a range of colourful and flexible choices which means you can make this fun hat uniquely yours. Just make sure the hat is comfortable on your head. And again that's where this style is flexible as you can fold it up into your pocket or bag when not in use.

If a peaked cap is what you're after, then the super cool high end New Era option is hot off the press at TShirt Studio . With 100 years of history and being the official cap provider for major league baseball in the USA, you know that you're buying one of the best caps on the market when you buy our personalised New Era baseball cap. The White New Era flag is plain to see but subtle at the same time, embroidered to the left hand side. Other features are the cap's rounded crown with structured front panels. It's sizing is adjustable with a neat snap back fitting to the rear strap. It's also Fair Labour certified.

For the full expanse of custom headwear look no further than our custom hat and cap embroidery range. Flat peaks are available and also on trend - enter our design your own Snapback cap or the premium flexfit snapback cap. The Truckers came before the rappers, the skaters and the gamers and this is such a comfortable option with the quilted front sweatband with the old school mesh at the back keeping your head cool.

It makes a great alternative to the baseball cap which is super popular. Occasionally we blow our own trumpet and this happy customer sums up our service - "I'm a fussy graphic designer and really pleased with the quality of the baseball cap and the embroidery looked exactly as expected from their easy to use website. Delivery was super speedy arrived within 2 days of placing the order. Already recommended to friends looking for an excuse to place more orders!"

For highly rated, cosy & warm look no further than our custom beanies. With a huge range of colours this is a good option for those who want warm heads ! There's a lot of debate about how much heat we lose through the head but one finding concluded by Claudia Hammond at the BBC, shows when our heads get cold and the body is effectively insulated, the body’s core temperature drops a lot more rapidly than most people would expect, probably due to the plethora of blood vessels close to the surface of the skin on the scalp. Alternatively if you'd like a custom embroidered bobble hat then this is not only another warm & fashionable option, with plenty of design your own bobble as well as hat combinations, but also a vote winner as a gift for friends and family. And here again a reviewer sings our praises at TShirt Studio - for the quality of our products and helping with family relations !: "This Company stands out amongst the crowd for its quality of products and speed of turnaround. My goods were delivered in a couple of days. The bobble hat is excellent and the hoodie is thick and seems to be a good quality item. I ordered two mugs, one for myself and one for my wife after I had broken her favourite one and I am glad to say I am her favourite husband again."
