Official 5 Panels/ Camp Caps Thread

Jan 01, 2013 @ 21:11
ive been in the retail business for years and im just trying to get you guys to open up your minds.
one of my friends worked at a factory and they take off made in china tags and replace em with new tags.
ive seen brand in what you would call a 'legitimate' stores with screen printed designs where they would simply cut the tag off the original plain shirt, print their design and replace it with their own tag.
louis vuitton and bigger brands we know that not all of their items are made in europe etc, they get some of their stuff made in china, finish it off with final details in france or w.e then say it was made in france.

well im done with the whole topic i brought up.
i wasnt trying to have an arguement.
just simply trying to open up your minds.
Haha so if that's the case, why doesn't every brand/company do that? Why would you have anything say it's been made in China when you can just say it was made in America? Or Italy or fucking Narnia? If this happens, why is there such a huge difference in quality from hats made in China than say the U.S. or New Zealand? Why don't the brands that produce hats in China remove the 'Made in China' tag?

Personally, both the companies that I've received awful fitting/quality hats from were made in the US. 

I really don't understand the whole deal about where the hats are made. I care about the quality, I don't care about where the hat is made.

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.(Invalid img)





I have some of that exact planet fabric laying around. Makes me want to make one like that.

resell price may be higher.
like getting a legit cdg pullover for 200, still over retail, under resale.

Well regardless I have to pay $10 for shipping for hats so I just count 54 as a standard price

Pretty sure you've asked that 10 times by now and nobody has answered. Nobody in this thread could find out any easier than you can. Google that shit.

I tried a couple ONLY NY hats at a local store and found they fit noticeably smaller/shallower than my other hats. Is this true with all their hats?

Check out  The Americus. They have nice quality camps. They're based in New Zealand so the hats are about 66 USD.
