Description

This "dixie cup" or "dog dish" white hat is one of two classic styles worn by sailors in the US Navy. It is worn "four blocked" to create a square appearance with the edges slightly rolled. Since white is a highly reflective color, these hats were sometimes dyed dark blue and other colors were often used to identify a sailor’s duty station.

While commonly called a “gob hat” the phrase does not appear to have ever been used by the US Navy, even though it is the most popular name for this style of naval hat.
