“I only use the skin of a python’s belly” says Don C in a recent chinwag with GQ style editor Will Welch. In this short, Don Crawley, better known as Don C, lets us in on the inspirations behind his coveted, Just Don snapbacks. For those who don’t know, the python motif was in fact borrowed from “buck fifty hats,” a baseball cap which featured faux python detailing and was popular among drug dealers in 1980s Chicago.
Constantly evolving his brand via collaborations with athletic heavyweights like Jordan Brand and Mitchell and Ness, Don has created a cult following for his own unique interpretations to classic sportswear designs. His hats have been worn by Beyonce to Big Sean, and are available from select shops across the globe such as colette, Barneys New York, RSVP and Wish ATL.
