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:

I’m not a hat guy but I would totally wear that Sunset Mountain one.

Don’t forget Goorin Bros., the best hatmaker west of the Ol’ Miss.
Coal Headwear makes a great set of vintage-style caps, as well.

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

Can’t leave out Ebbets FIeld Flannels in Seattle, WA. Truly old school wool caps.

Have you seen the caps done by Benny Gold? His work is really classy, and attention to detail superb.

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.
