Hello everyone, I am a fanatic on 5-panel hats and have had a deep desire to start my own business/brand.  With little money in my pocket, I was not able to match the pricing of over seas productions.  I decided to jump right into the art myself.  Learned how to sew and immediately started to make 5-panel camp hats that I am proud to show you guys today.  After many months of trial and error (making sure each panel fit correctly/trying different fabrics/different methods of production/logo) I still have a lot of perfecting to do. I would like to start selling, but I would like to perfect the art of 5-panel making first. Here's a little sneak peak of what I've made so far.

I love some of these designs but to be honest the build of some of these (basically all) are weak. If you can get these manufactured somewhere else I could for sure see myself buying some of these! (Also the leather strap kinda kills it for me as well)

^ Theres 3 layers of interface.  My first one was floppy, but my current ones are stiff and fit very well. Also I don't care if I am copying other brands with fabric designs or leather straps.  I make what I like and that all that matters to me.

I agree with you, I never really thought you copied anyone (someones gonna point it out I'm sure but I really don't care about copying and all that shit) and also the leather strap was just personal preference, I'm sure others won't mind it but for me I am not into leather straps.

Do what Sons of the North did and give the buyer the option of either a leather strap or nylon strap. That way everyone is happy.

The designs are solid! But the structures like he said are kinda weak. They look funky and have big bills. They are also kinda inconsistent but I know you are not a master so it's a learning process but opinions can help you learn. And yeah I don't like the leather backs too much. But keep up the good work and keep poppin in.

I can confirm that the quiet life hat up a few posts is legit.

I saw them talking to someone about it on instagram, but I hadn't seen a picture until that.

Sorry if you felt attacked, I didnt say that in a response. Im just putting that out there because I know there are going to be people that say I copied other brands. I never really noticed that the shaping was off.  This is why I post here to get feedback from people like you. Thank you.

Thats a great idea actually. Maybe once I perfect the fit, I can do an affordable fully custom 5-panel service with a MOQ of 1 (because most custom places are for mass production only) so the customer can choose if they want a nylon strap or leather strap. Thanks for the opinion!

Went to Macy's and saw that American Rag are doing the 5-panel thing too.

One of them was okay but it still felt half-ass.

How do the decades hats fit? For some reason I've just never picked one up, and I'm always skeptical about buying a new brand since I like shallow fits.

@mproc Decades hats fit perfect! I own about 3 and they all fit nicely. They run shallow too so no need to worry. You won't like something unless you try it. Plus, they just released their Holiday Selection so what better time to try something new than now. :D

I agree, the fabric choices are absolutely awesome on most of these but the construction is what kills it.. Construction is such a major part of the whole 5 panel craze... Props for trying it out and getting more done than most people though. If you were to out-source for a manufacturer you would be killing it with a lot of these prints.

Our site is online now. Limited to 10~15 each design so don't sleep.



It's kind of astounding how unoriginal these are.
Unoriginal but presented well... Curious to see how fast they sell...
