Buying Criteria: What to consider before buying a Flemish cap

Fans will do anything to show their love for their favourite club, especially when they can say they are part of the biggest fan club in the country and one of the biggest in the world. However, to choose a good cap, it is necessary to pay attention to some criteria. Here are the most important ones we have selected for you.

  • Material
  • Size
  • Fastening system
  • Original product

After reading each one of these topics carefully, you will be more than ready to choose the model that best fits your style.


One of the critical factors when choosing a cap is always paying attention to the material. Today most models are made of cotton, polyester or a mixture of both. It is also common to find leather models.

The question here is to find a material that is resistant, but that does not heat up your head too much. Breathable materials are the most indicated for people who suffer with excessive sweating.

Closing system

Currently, caps use two main types of closure. In the strapback, it is fastened by a band made of leather, fabric, plastic or the same fabric as the structure, usually fastened by a buckle system.

The snapback system is considered the most vintage nowadays, produced in plastic or silicone, being even today the most popular. Whichever model you prefer, make sure there is a good fit to prevent the cap from coming off.

Original product

Unfortunately, as with other products involving big brands and famous football teams, piracy is a constant concern, offering inferior quality products and without any warranty. In the case of Flemish cap, which are licensed products, it is important to always check the labels and origin of the product to avoid falling into a trap. If the price is too low, be suspicious.

In addition to offering caps of the highest quality, part of the revenue is passed on to the club, so when you buy an original product, you are not only opting for more quality, but also helping the team of your heart.
