So what is the difference between unstructured vs structured caps?
Many of our customers over the years have asked this question and its a very good one. There are basically two different options with a little variation occasionally in mix of things.
1) Unstructured 6-panel cap
2) Structured 6-panel cap
Unstructured 6-Panel Cap:
An unstructured custom cap is a cap that does not have a hard internal structure. An unstructured custom cap does not have this firm structure and so it will not hold its shape when it is not being worn. If you look at an unstructured cap when it is laying flat on a table or other surface you will notice that it sort of flops over and lays almost flat.
