Back in the ’90s, serial cursor Samuel L. Jackson was one of the rarefied few who could wear a flat cap on reverse and make it look – pardon the language – mother-effin’ cool. Self-professed Peaky Blinders fans would probably snarl at this sort of a swerve but Jackson made it his own and those around him would probably shit in their pants than tell him otherwise. Now, those wanting to flex the same devil may care attitude and style in 2022 can do so with the aid of Prada. The Italian fashion house is making such reverse cap-wearing on-trend again with a fresh take of this style in recycled nylon that it calls Re-Nylon. And that’s not all, this spot-on take of a ’90s trend is supported by the swagger of Prada’s rectangular logo positioned above the forehead. Wear it to the pub, to the golf course or even on the red carpet. Just resist the urge of being a walking cliché and chewing on a toothpick – that’s way too much swagger.
