Official 5 Panels/ Camp Caps Thread

I appreciate your comments. I mean of course we want to create something thats unique and original and not be like every other 5 panel brand out there but like almost every business the purpose is to make money and we don't want to go so far off trend that we don't sell or only appeal to a very limited market. I mean you mention Moupia's new animals collection, they are beautiful but yes they are predictable. Nonetheless I can almost guarantee they'll sell out instantly.

So what do you guys want to see, I know that should be my part but we have so many fabric choices, don't know which ones to show you. And price wise what's do you guys think is reasonable, up to $45?

@blackcampmarket Dinosaurs and Penguins are the best imo. Make those happen!

@thedecades Can't wait for these drops!

I dig the camels.

I really want that platypus print some guy had though.

@blackcampmarket the butterfly fabric looks nice, but nothing is really original, just some nice fabrics with a contrasting peak, it's been done before. I would still consider buying one, because i'm not yet tired of designs like this. But it is not as original as you claimed it to be.
Also, good looking out on the fabrics that have been used before, dissapointed by the ILU one smh

@somekindof I appreciate your opinion, I thought they were pretty unique, I mean we have a lot more fabrics that are probably more 'unique' but I put the ones I thought looked best when put into the template.

Also, good looking out on the fabrics that have been used before, dissapointed by the ILU one smh


And thats only a few, I've come across a lot more, LESS' deer fabric, almost every fabric Moupia has used, a lot of ILU, AnmlHse's Party Animals fabric, Preview's Polar Bear...

Don't blame you guys for cashing in on the trend, but those animal fabrics are such poor quality when it comes to fabrics and they're about as rare as pennies. There's a store 10 blocks down the street from me that has like 75% of the all over prints that I see companies using.

If you're doing limited runs of novelty print hats, for the love of god source your fabrics by hand and use vintage deadstock stuff where you can. These companies that operate by buying the fabrics as cheap as they can online and sending them off to a manufacturer are a joke.

@blackcampmarket love the penguin dinosaur and birds

Where did you found all of these known fabrics from all the brands on the web ?

What do you guys think of that cap? I'm not sure about it.

@mregotting Thanks

@sharkin Fair point but it's easier said than done I guess, that's why rare fabrics are rare, because they're hard to find. I mean especially here in UK there are not many fabric shops around. Where I am at least there isn't one fabric shop, not for a good 10 miles. I'm going round a couple shops at the weekend so hopefully I'll find something good.

Ok, here it goes. These are just a few we like, we have a lot more fabrics that we are considering. Let us know what you think of these, which stand out etc. And what do you think of the name, it was just the first thing that came to our mind for the purpose of the image but we quite like it.



I'd cop that shroom

Multiple places, they're not easy to find but they are there, I do like to think I'm a bit of a search genius though, can find almost anything online.

This.
I have a lot of vintage fabrics laying around wich i sourced by hand in thrift stores, markets, old peoples houses (for real),... also, i've made hats using fabrics from vintage clothing i bought and cut. But this is not easy to do when you want to produce more than just one hat each..

Bummed me out so much to see Only NY replicas, people who make them should be shot.
Nevermind, people who wears replicas/hop on every new trend will always be dickriders, trendfollowers and faggots anyway.

Agreed. I source everything by hand and would never purchase fabric online.

I don't understand what everyone has against buying fabrics online. I know a lot of them are shit and it's nice to source by hand but I mean, if you find a nice fabric online, even it's not the most unique but a really nice print, and it's good quality... why not buy it?

So all the fabrics you do buy from small shops etc, if the exact same fabric was online you wouldn't buy it? I agree it's nice to source by hand but unless your producing very limited quantities it's hard and your not going to get any where near as much choice in a shop as you'll get online. I'm sure there's literally millions of fabrics online, they can't all be shit.

I have nothing against online fabrics, a lot of them are nice, of course the stuff you source by hand is going to be more rare and maybe a bit more unique but you get a lot more choice online meaning online you get the best of the best, from a shop you only get the best of that shop. And I bet you a lot of the online fabric seller are stores that are trying to sell online.

Free shipping though, so I feel that it is worth it. So really they'd be $45-50 caps. PLUS they make the best fitting caps I've ever tried. Plusx2 they are a Canadian brand, so gotta support RBW.
