Well since there are shirts why not hats? bluesuke mentioned in my hat thread and I think it's an awesome idea.

I agree I would rock UU hats. I'm not really a hat person but I would rep them.

I think it's a cool idea; I'd definitely buy one. I'm surprised Aldrine hasn't commented, this should be right up his alley haha.

must Rep one of those with a shirt.


i think we should be on the process of stickers before hats though.

might be kind of an expensive venture, but new era does custom designs.

HATS!!! Great idea...I know exactly who we should use...PUKKA hats.

www.pukkaheadwear.com

Have used these guys for other groups, my company...awesome quality, affordable prices, and great style/selection. They really can't be beat for smaller batch orders like ours would be. Charge 15 bucks a hat and you could get a really great style shipped.

UU Mods..IM me if you ke, I can help! I may even be willing to bird-dog the whole operation for you. They are a Midwest company and I have a service rep relationship there and everything.

What style hats do people like these days? I used to wear hats all the time but had to stop because of my job. A lot of you sound interested so we are definitely considering putting some out now...

Vans...weren't they just bought out by VF Corp??...that same company that runs Wrangler jeans and Jansport....if so, I refuse to wear them any more...used to all the time. I grew up skateboarding and in the 80s and 90s and try to support the companies that stay ind. owned and and in touch with the core scene.

Vans does still have a legit team, but who is profitting from it is what matters to me. I don't want someone to be driving a BMW that is purchased with "skate" money when they have never even stood on a board in their life. Just my opinion of course...

Yes, Vans was bought by VF Corp some time ago (thus was the reason for closing about 75% of the Vans Skateparks around the U.S.).

I grew up skating in the 80's and early 90's myself and worked for HIC (Hawaiian Island Creations - Skate Team). I agree to keepin' the money with companies that care about the skateboarders and tryin' to keep the money in the U.S., however it's very hard to find one nowadays, except for grass roots local kine companies that don't get the exposure that they should (like Natural Koncepts in Hawaii). It's extremely hard to find ANY skate shoe out there that is actually made in the U.S. - even the well known skate shoe companies (ie. Etnies, DC, Emerica, Vans) are made abroad by the cheapest bidder.

American jobs get shipped over seas - product prices and quality drops; all the while CEO's are chuckling while counting their money on the way to the bank.

BTW -

Sorry for the thread hi-jack. LOL I'd love to see some (velcro) adjustable baseball hats (Khaki or Brown). I can't stand "trucker" hats myself. The plastic mesh is just so friggin' ghetto-fabulous! :D

as for me, I like New Era hats. But that's me and that's sorta my style. But if you're gonna put out a UU hat, it should be on a trucker hat or brimmed beanie.

heres a site that does customs for a price not so bad;

Yeah I'm quite fond of New Era Caps aswell. I don't expect New Era customs for UU but something along the same style.

The New Era... what is it... "ProFit" hats... much better than the trucker hat.

My two cents.

I read this as "New Era Profit Hats" haha. It's actually New Era "fitted" caps and I agree.

There's a website called cafepress.com that lets you put your own design on hats and shirts and things like that for free, and then cahrges like 10-20$ for different things...

Some of us wear hats like Aldrine has, so even a UU HAT BAND would be great. We can put it around the dome and have an instant official UU Hat!
