Richardson 112FP vs. Yupoong/YP Classics 6506 - What is the Difference?

Richardson 112FP vs. Yupoong/YP Classics 6506 - What is the Difference?

The Richardson 112FP is the five panel trucker cap and the Yupoong/YP Classics 6506 is the 5-panel retro trucker cap. The Yupoong 6506 is also known as the Flexfit 6506. The main differences are the material, sizing, and price. The Richardson 112FP is made of 47% cotton and 53% polyester, while the Yupoong 6506 is made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton. The polyester material is primarily used for the mesh back crown panels. The Yupoong 6506 has more polyester content overall (polyester has wrinkle-resistant properties, is durable, able to retain its shape, and cheaper than cotton, so may be preferred in some cases).

The sizing for the Richardson 112FP is OSFM (one size fits most) - sizes: 7 - 7 3/4. The sizing for the Yupoong 6506 is OSFA (one size fits all) - sizes: 6 5/8 - 7 5/8. As a result, the Yupoong 6506 fits a slightly wider range of head sizes, but Richardson's sizing still targets most of the common sizes. 

The last main difference is the Richardson 112FP is at a slightly higher price point than the Yupoong 6506. Both caps are premium quality. Both styles come with an adjustable, plastic snapback closure and pre-curved visor. Both caps are 5-panel and structured. The 5-panel caps do not have a seam/stitching in the middle and are sometimes preferred for screenprinting and heat transfer.
