Starter Caps Adjustable

[Quote] I have to disagree that all the old school Starter caps were "precurved". I believed that most if not all were flat brim but people curved it cuz that was the whole style back then. I remember people would even tie a rubberband around the brim of their new Starter caps just to give that brim a nice curve. If you don't believe me i'll let my vintage deadstock Starter / snapback wool caps collection pics do the talking... [Image] If anyone else wants more pics of individual wool caps just let me know...

Sneaker Pimps Manila w/ Futura - May 26

[Quote] I used to think like that too until i decided to visit here after 21 years. Then i found out that the whole sneaker/streetwear culture is definitely on the up up here and it seems like its gonna keep progressing. Thats why i decided to stay here longer and start making moves. It doesnt really matter if the consumers here are tourist, celebrities or locals....just know that there is a scene here and its growing. If you think back 5 years ago or longer there werent too many heads willing to buy kicks that cost more than $200 or camp out...but the culture there blew up and now you got kids camping out for days just to purchase over priced sneakers. Obviously the cost of the limited/exclusive products are not for everyone...but there are people that will make it happen no matter what it takes to cop the hottest shit....just like everywhere else. Philippines is just a lil late but best believe that the sneaker/streetwear culture here exist and is on the rise. In fact, this is the second time the Sneaker Pimps event visited here and i don't think its will be the last time. They've seen the drastic growth of the culture from the last time they visited here which was 2 years ago. [URL]

Official "Show me your NEW ERA" thread

[Quote] First off i just want to make it clear that ALL these caps are AUTHENTIC and DEADSTOCK. They were purchased @ an old school mom and pop sports shop somewhere in Southern Cali (can't tell you exactly where cuz we are not done going thru all their backstocks yet). Me and a couple of friends have been on the hunt for Starter caps or anything like it with a green bottom brim for the last year and a half...even before The Hundreds came out with their own retro version of the green bottom brim. We've searched thru a grip of swapmeets, thrift store, flea market, etc...but all we've come up with are a few dope teams here and there but not too much selections. Not until recently did we got lucky and stumbled upon a small mom and pop sporting goods that had a handfull of selections. As we were going crazy pickin thru and fighting for the displays of caps, the old lady tells us that there were no reason to fight over it cuz she has more in the back! She then decided to take us back in the stockroom after hounding her. Apparently they got mad backstock boxes of caps that have been there for years now. So me and a homie had a field trip diggin thru all these boxes. Not all the caps were dope but we picked the ones we like either cuz of the teams or the colorway. We actually didn't finished going thru all the boxes and will definitely come back for more! Call us lucky or whatevers...but we've spent mad time and gas hunting for a spot like this for awhile now. Thats whats up right there! Here is a closer look... [Image] I'll post more individual pics once i get around... Oh yeah...alot of these will be available @ the TAKEOVER SHOP in the Philippines...once it gets sent from the states!!! *shameless plug* lol [URL]
