Hey guys, new to this forum and 5 panels. What are the better brands and usual prices I should be looking for to score a nice and firm cap?
It really depends on the brand, supreme in their online store vs resale is huge difference - the same applies with any popular and limited print.
$50-$55ish with shipping seems to be usual.
by "better" I'm going to assume you mean quality.
As quality goes there isn't much difference among smaller brands. Just be sure to stay away from brands sold at your local mall - obey & chuck originals. The ladder especially being a joke.
But smaller brands such as anmlhse & who cried wolf seem to have the same manufacture.
I love ugly is more expensive for base prices (roughly $72 usd) but they're easily my favorite 5 panel brand I've worn. They fit my head just right (7 1/2) They're slightly boxxy at first, but they form a fit to your head within 3-4 wears.
The quiet life and supreme are tied behind ILU, the holes on the side of the hat match up if you happen to be ocd.
Huf is gr8 if you have a smaller head (under 7 3/
Moupia fits are horribly awkward if you have any decent sized head.
Feel free to correct this.
