New Vintage Hat Culture

Posted by Jakub

Since I was a teenager i’ve wanted to do custom hats, mostly just a cap, i’ve always been fascinated by the choosing color combinations to the quality of the sewing of the patches, embroidery, and all over printing. After digging around I have to say there is an amazing culture set in place of people making high end hats beyond New Era. I hope to do a custom ISO50 one someday soon because i’m itching to do one like the beautiful Oxford one by Quiet Life, here’s a few companies that do it properly:

Damn… @TOM WELSH and @RYAN coming thru big!

@Tyler made by Burton which blew me away and the trucker hat thing is kind of growing on me I don’t know why

New Era still does the best caps…check out the collaborations they do with LDRS, Blackscale, Fitted Hawaii etc

This post is great. Big up on the Benny Gold mention by @tokyospark . Personally, I love the five panel hats that companies like Obey, Benny Gold, and Supreme are doing with all different kinds of patterned fabrics. Such a different take compared to your cookie cutter New Era baseball caps.
