The people that think cut & sew info is freely available blows me away. If someone finds a factory thats cheap and high quality they sit on that info and dont tell a god damn soul, only person that knows my hat factory and cut and sew factory is my business partner.
Took me over 8 months to finally find a factory in china that is reliable, professional, all about high quality and all that for snapbacks. My guy even made me a sample before i paid him. Its also hella cheap to go straight to a factory. I get my sample next week after just doing a money transfer today. I may be able to help some other brands out, for a fee of course. Shoot me a PM with your info and ill contact you if we end up doing middle man work for others.
Also i think the "Made in USA" is semi overrated. The majority of people want high quality, for the lowest price and at the end of the day i doubt they really care where it comes from. Especially with some of the stuff china is producing right now.
Heres a pic of the sample im waiting to come in
Ya! 780 baby. Shoot me a PM if you ever plan to buy some flavor clothes ill hook you up with a HB deal
I guess my opinion is semi biased due to me living in Canada..
ha, only right I suppose.
It really depends on your market and what scale operation you are running. A company the size of Apple pushing out millions of products is able to give workers steady income as opposed to a small independent clothing brand producing less than 100 hats. Cap manufacturing in the US has been a scarce resource for years because 1) No one is sharing their resource, 2) They overcharge and lack of costumers puts them out of business, 3) No one goes to school for 'Cap manufacturing'. Total opposite oversea. Some US companies act as middle men and order from China anyways, while making a little on top.
This^ . Anyone that does find local stuff like that would never share it. Some middle men like you mentioned, but then the price is way higher thus cutting into your profits.
There is tons of middle man companies, P______ Fits for example, that seem to be half ass companies run by people who have no idea what they are doing. I was quoted 6-8 weeks on hats, and its the 15th week now and I still havent received them. It takes almost a week every time to get a reply to any sorts of emails yet they spam the shit out of their twitter feed and facebook. I've been trying to be understanding because I assume they are having issues with their own factories, but man, at least be more transparent with your customers about the orders they have placed and paid for...
Checked out your site btw, love the colors on that sold out guilty pleasure hat. And the 36pc is dope, did you go through BS? (If you dont know the abbreviation or dont want to answer no worries mate)
