What do you wear??
In North American usage, a beanie or skully is a head-hugging brimless cap with or without a visor. In the United States, beanies are made from triangular sections of cloth joined by a button at the crown, and seamed together around the sides. They can also be made from leather or silk panels.In other English-speaking countries, a "beanie" is a knitted cap, known in the United States as a "stocking cap" or "beanie" and in Canada as a "tuque".
Snapback is an urban slang term for an adjustable flat brim baseball cap. All other design elements are identical to modern, fitted, flat-billed caps as worn by professional baseball players. Snapbacks are less expensive than fitted baseball caps, and have become increasingly trendy in young urban fashion.Although trucker hats and other types of adjustable baseball caps may be sold with pre-bent brims, usually with a mesh back section, these are not typically called "snapbacks" in urban slang.Youth culture and hip hop fashion popularised the hat, although it is now popular among many groups.
