Are snapbacks dead?

Nov 18, 2012 @ 22:17
Mitchell and Ness over saturated the market, I see year old M & N snaps going for about ten bucks, they made too many styles and too many of each hat.

Seems like you young bols are going to 5 panels, I'm a 24 year old G though so I think I'm going back to fitteds, as much as possible anyway, fucking New Era and their custom account owners are still dropping a lot of heat in snaps only, wiggidy wack.

As long as hypebeasts are still around, snap backs will never be dead. Sadly.

I wear snapbacks but not those colorful team M&N shit, just plain black or navy snapbacks.

Still fitteds>snapbacks

lol you think hats will die? maybe m&n but snapbacks/fitteds will not die. and camps dont seem to be fading out any time soon. i thought they were fading out this summer but they seem so typical nowadays. they may die out in a couple years but snaps and fitteds, no

I've been wondering same thing. I go around to a lot of local skate shops and ask them what they think is going on with it. they kept telling me 5 panels were coming on big..i just cant see people wearing them en masse. 

noticed lately strapbacks have been coming on strong especially in urban areas. i can't really see skate kids adopting strapback though? what do you guys think

I can see snapbacks getting less popular with the masses pretty soon. More and more places are pushing 5 panels, guess they just fit better

camp caps are ugly as fuck if you aks me, probably only on a white head kid, idk, dont like these
hope that the snapbacks stay the trend

whaleboy i have to agree with marvelpreme i never even tried one on honestly, it just reminds me of a train conductors hat definitely not my style. i just have a hard time trying to figure out the next hot trend. don't think 5panels will ever touch baseball hat market share.

i saw that mitchell&ness is doing a strapback that tucks in kinda so it's not hanging out there like jayz and kanye's python straps. i could see something like that trending

Are you serious? 

No offense, but years ago it was all about fitted's and now a lot of stores do not even carry them anymore, I expect the same eventually to happen with the snapback.

keety where do you see it going though? back to fitted? or another style

When it comes to hats, at any given time there only seems to be one popular style which dominates for a few years before becoming obsolete.

it all comes and goes... rock what you like
Mar 01, 2013 @ 10:24
Lol I hope I don't look like a train conductor! Yeah it does all come and go I agree. Everyone suits and fits different hats so we should all figure out what's best for us not what's in fashion blushing

To be honest, I don't even like 5-panels..
Mar 03, 2013 @ 19:59
Nope they're just dormant like that Herpes virus inside your body.
Mar 03, 2013 @ 20:01
I'm not a huge fan of the typical 6 panel construction of hats I like the 5 panel snaps like old starters
