In the early 2000s, the trucker hats of the 1970s made a major comeback, if an ironic one. Many people credit actor Ashton Kutcher for bringing back the trucker hat. Um, thanks?
Anyway, faster than you could say "hipster," everyone was wearing a trucker hat. Even famous designers like Christian Audigier launched trucker hat lines, with designs created by tattoo artist Ed Hardy. Today, these mesh, ill-fitting caps run upwards of $100 apiece. One hundred bucks for a mesh hat that doesn't fit? Not in this economy.
