Peaked Cap is a slight variant of a Mariner’s cap; however, there are some differences. The crown is structured and slightly slanted. The front side of the crown is raised, and the back is slanted downward. Therefore, the crown has gradually declining height, and the peak is at the front. This is one reason why this cap is known as a Peaked Cap.
Another distinct feature about this cap is the short, stiff visor, originally made from leather but now made from synthetic leather alternatives. This short visor is also known as a peak, and thus the cap gets its name.
A Peaked cap is mostly worn by the armed forces personnel and therefore has the forces’ insignia and a rank-defining braid around the headband.
