^ ILU is starting to not sit right with me. First, outsourcing to china which increases their profit margins AND now they increase the standard price of hats by $10. Fuck that.


Some people seem to forget that you can't get your business to grow without making a profit. The profit allows them to build their company and make more and better garments.

I agree, $85 AUD is a lot for a hat, but I'm sure the quality is top notch as always.

The fit of those hats look funny to me, maybe it's a bad angle. Also fuck those vertical airholes, is that them trying to separate themselves from the crowd? Kill me

Correct!!! But $85 bthen they need to be using thee highest grade of fabric and use horween leather for the straps because thats like someone paying $70 for a American Apparel cotton tshirt

My @minsct hat came (already!) and it's damn awesome. A bit of a bigger brim and, but pretty damn good construction (the box logo has a tiny but if faulty stitching, but I just cut off the excess string, so it's fine).


Thanks homie! Appreciate it.

I don't doubt that the quality is top notch but their quality has been consistently good throughout every drop but what bugs me is that they keep raising their prices just because they want to make their brand look more "high end". Whatever, can't really bash them,I just won't support them.

It's kinda of a bummer that ILU rose the prices on their hats, but it better because they'll be sitting there. So when ever I get a paycheck I'll cop one or two.

for real though, anyone else not feeling the new ILU front patch?
Nov 03, 2012 @ 01:01
ILU have to be one of my favourite brands still. Just love the quality and professionalism. I don't agree with them rising their prices, I don't think it cost more to make the new range but they can do what they want at the end of the day. And I like the new patch. The old one was too big and glad they got rid of the extra large bit.

Anyone know about the fit/quality of XCVB hats?

Who makes the most comfortable and best fitting plain black/navy 5 panel? Last winter I had a Carhartt black wool 5 panel but the fit was terrible so I sold it on. Open to different materials and basic designs/colour combinations

EDIT: Just had a quick look on Flatspot and found these - would appreciate it if anyone could let me know about the quality and fit of any

Quiet life always makes really nice fitting caps. I have never been disappointed by a hat I purchased from them.

Sorry don't mean to be rude but @proverse they're nice hats but that wolf fabric for example is literally the first result when you type 'wolf fabric' on google images.
Nov 04, 2012 @ 10:13
Don't worry about being nice - just tell them straight. To give him credit it isn't the first fabric when you search 'wolf fabric', it's the second





Although I have a feeling the eagles fabric is the first result when you search 'eagle fabric', slackin on those second result roots





Also wonder where he got the idea for this logo...



Yes i'm mean, boo hoo

Its the first result for me. I have nothing against finding fabrics online, but at least look around and try and find something that is a bit rare. I have been helping a friend with his brand and found this wolf fabric. Found it online, but I think the place was the only place that had it. Still so generic with what brands are doing now so were not using it.

Shit is a little too "3 wolf moon" for me. Looks like a shirt I could get at a flea market.
