Hmmm... they have sort of a
slight curve to them. I wonder
if spray-on starch and an iron
(with a paper towel over the
brim to preclude burning the
fabric) would help stiffen it
for you.

Been having the same problem.

I like to think i have a good collection and even some of mine have that anonying burve on the brim.

But as stated before trying to bend it flat wont work as it will wreck the shape of the cap.

The Hundreds OG starter caps had the same problem but it look as if the new ones dont so i would suggest buying them.

if you are referring to the old school starter hats, those were meant to have curved brims b'cuz they are all precurved. to flatten the brim will disorient the geometry of the crown.

remember, no really started rocking the "deadstock" flat brim till Fabolous.

Bell Biv DeVoe was killin em in those starter hats, Ewings and UMen overalls in that "Poison" video..

Boys 2 Men, ABC, BBD


I have to disagree that all the old school Starter caps were "precurved". I believed that most if not all were flat brim but people curved it cuz that was the whole style back then. I remember people would even tie a rubberband around the brim of their new Starter caps just to give that brim a nice curve. If you don't believe me i'll let my vintage deadstock Starter / snapback wool caps collection pics do the talking...



See how flat the brim sits on the surface..





If anyone else wants more pics of individual wool caps just let me know...

Holy Shit at TakeOver's pictures. Ive been dethroned in a strong manner.

I could have that many, and seeing that is inspiring me to go finish off the collection.

As for the flat brimmed who ever asked the question. All of my hats are like TakeOvers perfectly flat bills...
