Features and use
The main difference between the cap and the hat is that it has no brim. Depending on the shape of the cap, it has a neck protector on the back or earmuffs on the front of a screen. A cap covers most of the top third of the head completely so that the hair and hairstyle are no longer visible.
Caps are not only worn to protect against the cold. They are an important part of the work clothing of various professions. Thus, the visor cap is firmly in the police uniform and the police hat is a respectful symbol.
The chef does not wear his hat as part of a uniform, but to protect his food from contamination through hair loss. The purpose of hats in professions therefore depends on which professional group they are wearing.
For religious reasons
Another aspect of the vest is religious. In many religions hats are worn to cover the hair out of respect for God. As in Judaism, where the kippah serves this purpose, or in the Muslim religion the sunna. These caps are only worn by men; Women wear a headscarf. Within religion, the cap can also be a mark of a dignitary who holds his wearer, such as the bishop’s cap.
