Does anyone know the company/manufacturer name on the back of this Only NY snapback?
This isn’t a Only NY logo, so wanted to know who’s it is as i have seen it on a few hats.
Its blue, white and red with a ladies head.
Link below.

Thanks in advance




Don't need a manufacturer but could someone tell me the exact type of fabric this snapback is made of? it's different from the generic mitchell&ness, new era snapback shit that's out. what is the fabric or texture called?

The site says poly/cotton blend

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

MADE IN USA is more than quality and price. It's about wanting to put a meal on an honest workers table without sending money out of the country. Support US brands with US dollars to strengthen the US economy. I buy US goods wherever I feasibly can. Honestly, I think US apparel puts the money in the factory workers' hands whereas offshore production will end up with the company and foreign economy getting that larger share. With offshore production, you've eliminated a couple pieces from the puzzle, killing any chance at money multipliers within the economy or trickle-effects. With hats being what, like 10 bucks difference in price, it's a no-brainer.
USA all the way.


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)

I started this thread in July 2011. I can now say i've gone thru seven different manufacturers, from two different country's. I first sourced samples from China but soon found myself searching for a US manufacturer. The Chinese quality at first was low standard, low cost, short run times. The US quality was High standard, high cost, long run times.
Today is the 7th of October, i can now say iv'e officially found a manufacturer. I've been using this manufacturer for the last three months. The hat quality is of a standard i could not originally find. Below is picture's of some of the hats from our summer range!
Feel free to ask any questions!



Good shit!

All Brands mentioned in this thread I have seen at Flex Fit every time I'm there. And we all know they do their work over seas.

Maybe on some they out source to others but for under 5 bucks with embroidery, why go find it cheaper. I tried to find cheaper when I went to Magic and did. It was $1.50, minimum order 144 and good quality but I would rather have the dealing of Flex Fit over them all day, everyday.

dude i just started my own brand about 6 months ago. i did my research (the info is out there, hard to find though) for the manufacturer of Only, Huf, Supreme, TQL... and they are 10000000000000% made in the US. Dont say brands make them overseas then sew on the "Made in USA" tag. That's just offensive. They are all made in the US with US materials and fabrics. Get your shit together before making a statement like that.

Flexfit has two programs. Domestic and overseas. With domestic you can't fully customize your caps. Not worth it at all. Any brand who uses Flexfit isn't legit.

Tons of brands get shit made in USA and its good quality. Problem with USA made is the mins are high, usually 144, and the color options and custom tagging options are very limited. Time frame is also a bitch with most places i've looked at being upwards of 6-8 weeks

Majority of consumers dont care where a product is made. If they like it, they like it. So getting things made overseas is a great way to cut costs.

I just got my Winter hat order in from my new factory. 3 styles, 50pc of each. Cheapest price i've found yet and also the highest quality. Samples took a week and full production plus freight was just over 3 weeks.

Yeah cause they use the overseas program. that has a minimum of like 550 pieces. good luck with that. im saying their domesticp program sucks. overseas has all the options, but then again, youre manufacturing overseas. USA manufacturing is much better if you find it

Hmm, maybe you dont have minimums but they would still have price breaks. Like if youre only getting a couple they will be mad expensive because they have to be made in the sample room. I've found places with low mins like 15 but I mean you're paying $25 for a hat which is ridiculous.

At the end of the day its all about finding the highest quality product for the lowest possible price. I dont think enough people really care where its made. It is however a great selling point you can use, but not a necessity. All my clothing (excluding hats) are made in canada so I do push that aspect but most people couldn't be bothered by it, or thats how it seems anyways.

not to jump in the middle of others discussions but flex fit has definitely done domestic orders for a good number of the more popular/successful brands out there.

Flexfit does Domestic, the min. is 144. Not sure about the pricing or quality but the Hundreds have used them. I guess Flexit and Yupoong are the same company. Still looking for the HUF manu. out in LAsad

After MONTHS of research I found the good people at Captuer.  They are
stateside and can help you with any project for your line.  Trust me, I
have tried everything!  I have samples from most of the companies listed
above and if you are looking for a wonkey china fit/quality they are
your guys.  Hats are like shoes, you can't just expect to find decent
options on Alibaba and start running headwear.  Captuer helps lots of
the big brands but can help you too.  I hate to give up my connects but
give and you shall receive.  Here is my latest run of snapbacks.
