Are there any snapbacks that fit like fitteds? I bought a snapback and most snap backs ive tried on barley fit on my head. I have long hair so it looks fucking stupid. do "deep fitting" snap backs exist? how to i spot em


I noticed this too, probably just cos I got a fat head but still, I'm not too sure about finding many with the deep fit but from my personal experience I think the depth can vary as I noticed that my Huf caps really sit a little deeper than my Obey caps.

Came to ask as well. I wear a size 8 fitted, I bought this new era snapback five months ago:
And it BARELY fits on the last snap and only when my hair is freshly cut.
I tried on this Vans New Era snap:

A year or two ago and they fit deep as fuck but I haven't found any that fit like that since. I assume New Era resized cause there's no way my head grew that big and I had a shit ton more hair then. :/

Not really feeling the Mitchell & Ness Snapbacks. there the same feeling of a fitted and one of the plus about snapbacks are the lightness compared to a fitted

I don't understand the craze behind ti$a snapbacks their fucking shit quality. They buy wholesale bootleg vintage remake snapbacks and slap their logo on them, so weak.

Do they fit deep like fitted caps then?

In my opinion, the Mitchell & Ness snapbacks are cut close to the "old-school" retro styling... higher crown, square visor and a bit shallow towards the back. They also do their regular fitted shape with a snap, like the Raiders cap shown by ELKO. The New Era joints seem to be 5950's but with a back snap.

Most "real" deadstock caps are shallow. Don't believe the hype, some of that "deadstock" shit you are seeing at spots for $50-$100 is not always true deadstock! Unless, these joints were preserved in a fkn ice chamber, the hangtags that usually come with the caps would show some wear and discoloration. The crown shapes would also show some crushing. Heads are getting over...HARD! Don't give me this shit that you have a connect in fkn Europe somewhere who just happens to be sitting on crates of Bulls, Raiders, etc caps for the past 20 yrs. And that Starter stuff you are seeing out there in collaborations is just the right to the name Starter. Again, there is some "true" deadstock out there but there is also new caps being passed off as "deadstock".

Don't forget the other brands putting out good snapback product, such as ONLY NY, ELM, Quintin, WIP Caps, Ampal Creative to name a few.

As far as team licensed stuff goes, Mitchell & Ness is doing it the best... my opinion. The material is tight, embroidery is tight, fit is legit, and their price won't break your bank.

hell no, not the mall.

It looks like an original "deadstock" Drew Pearson snapback. They use to make all the "alternate" colorways for teams back in the days. But again, it can be from anyone... its really hard to tell from a photo.

where can i get snapbacks that fit shallow like the NBA vintage ones? without having to pay rape prices

i'm not looking for anything specific; just the same shallow fit. but i am looking for a raiders one like this http://snaphats.com/collections/homepage/products/vintage-la-raiders-logo-7-vintage-snap-back

i'm not tryna pay 100$ for a hat

how do the adidas, starter, and Logo 7 snapbacks fit compared to the NBA ones

I think the sudden interest in snapbacks comes from the design aesthetics of various companies, there's many different styles for each team to choose from. I personally like them.
