Just posted a few shots of a new 5 panel we'll be releasing early next month with our Winter 2012 drop.

Though I know I said a somewhat different thing in the post above - I think things like these are very oversaturated. The pattern obviously isn't self designed and it makes me think about how much work actually went in to creating this hat...

You're correct, I didn't create herringbone. However, you couldn't be more far off in telling me little thought or work went into creating this product. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.

When I feel that a timeless fabric such as herringbone perfectly fits the aesthetic of a release, I will create a product to reflect that, regardless if you or others think it is oversaturated or a trend. I can see you have your own brand as well. You're right in that as brand owners we should be aware of trends in the market, but not all of us feel pressured to conform (or nonconform) to that.

I've always striven to not draw lines or parallels to other brands or trends, and the only standard I feel obligated to live up to is my own. So if I am fine with releasing a product made of quality classic pattern (that I didn't design) then I will do so. Thanks for your input though.

You shouldn't worry too much about what other people are saying. Buy a hat because YOU like it, not because somebody else likes/disklikes it. There is always going to be someone who has something bad to say about something else.

I'm not by any means saying not to buy it (I may do so myself, I think the hat looks god damn cool), I'm just saying that it doesn't seem all that original (stussy, QL have both done them).

I'm not saying its bad (I actually really like it), I'm just saying that its pretty derivative of other brands/ styles.

I didn't take it that way at all, you made some good points in a respectful manner and I was just addressing those. This hat was heavily inspired by "old" New York, and the majority of newsboys caps from that era were made of herringbone or a heather charcoal blend of fabric. I know that it probably doesn't make this hat less derivative in your eyes, but just figured I'd let you know my thought process when creating the hat (and that I was not trying to emulate the other brands you mentioned.)

I was pointing out that a herringbone design has been used in multiple different companies drops. He then explained his reasoning to me, and I now get his artistic vision. You being rude isn't really needed at all...

Its funny how heated niggas get about clothes online


I guess if you're passionate, you get defensive easily? Movie people and art people do the same, it keeps it interesting.

I guess, but in real life if you guys were talking face to face it would never accelerate this quickly.

So is everyone just tired of suede brims or just that it's being played out by every brand. I mean the decades use suede brims on almost all their hats but they were at the top of a lot of peoples list when someone asked what everyones favourite brand was.

Discrete National Park Five Panel
Is this worth it? Love the hat, but 75 for it plus international shipping is ridiculous.


75 NZD is about $61. Which is still a little steep but its fucking gorgeous


I'd say it's worth the money. As @chriscosta said its NZD anyway. I ended up buying 3 hats and got free postage though because if your order is over $200NZD postage is free.

Should I feel bad for bending one of my 5 panels brims slightly? I find it looks better with some caps when the brim is bent.

You own it - do whatever you want with it. It's not a baby hamster it doesn't feel pain.

I know i'm coming through with a lot of hate but I just need to callout the guy behind blackcampmarket (Don't think for a second he isn't still lurking). You say you are business minded but we both know this is a terrible business model (you pretty much admitted that yourself) and it just makes you a CHUMP. I feel bad for anyone who buys a cap off you because you have found someone who is an even bigger chump than you are. You wouldn't be having a mid season sale if business was good so looks like you've made yourself look like a dickhead and can't move the stock, sort it out!

5 panels are dying out, especially for the season

great summer hat so they'll be back next year, but good luck to anyone starting a brand now

They are also dying because they are played out now. When brands like Burton and Hurley start making 5 panels we definitely know the end is in sight.

Soon they are gonna be like a New Era fitted; they aren't trendy anymore and all the kids that spent their allowance on them will be dropping their florals off at goodwill.

@chadacadabra Too late, both those companies have made 5-panels.. not that I'm really bothered that more brands are making them though.. I'm not gonna stop wearing camp caps anytime soon.
Oct 29, 2012 @ 00:26
I don't know about you guys but I'm the only one in my entire city who rocks 5 panels. There's even an Urban Outfitters at the mall (haven't been inside yet) but I'm presuming that it carries 5 panels yet I still have yet to see another person in a 5 panel.
