    haha. I don't know either, I think once you buy a whole bunch of colors, you'll end up wearing only one or two and wonder why you did all that in the first place.

    Yeah, your shipping for the flat rate envelope goes up to $11.95.
    I don't know how much of a deal it would be for you now.

    & the list is updated now and we have enough people and since I want my hats a.s.a.p. I'll send you guys an invoice and place an order haha.

    I'm gonna be the naysayer here and say that I don't see anything special about these caps. I bought one, the colors and price are nice. I don't like the fit at all, it looks huge and ridiculous on my head. I'll never wear it.

    If you've never bought one I'd think twice. I had been eyeing a Margiela one, and tried to get this as a cheap alternative. Ended up with the Margiela, not because of the name or price, but because it actually fits me well. I don't see the hype in these besides the low price and nice colors. They just don't look good.

    Maybe they would on someone with a bigger head, I'm a 7 3/8th head, 5'10" 150 lbs. It just looks ridiculous with my frame and head size.

    Commence flaming. I had to say it.

    I totally agree. Read above comment. I'd rather have one nice one even if it is expensive.

    Well because I am a poor Midwestern guy who cares more on price/value and function I want them.

    However,
    @MSSneaker If you still have the cap, would you mind posting a fit pic? I am a 7 1/4, 5'9 140 If you find it to be big, it may be huge for me.

    I probably won't end up posting a fit pic, I'll see if I can later today, but I can almost guarantee it is going to look big on you if it looks big on me, considering we are almost the same height/weight build and your head is slightly smaller.

    I also have to say, in terms of price/value, you get what you pay for with them. Sure they are well made, I guess, and if you like chunky hats they are a good buy, but you're not getting some kind of great deal on these. They are a 15 dollar hat, and they look and feel like a 15 dollar hat.

    I'd say my more expensive beanie functions much better, but it was more costly, and probably not a great value for a lot of people. But, I'd rather have one great hat for more than a dozen hats in different colors.

    I seriously don't know where these got hyped so hard. Maybe I am just hating and they are great for some people and fit them well, I don't know. The way it fits me I wouldn't think it came from advice on SF or Sufu.

    "I'm from the Midwest". Isn't that robbie's favorite excuse whenever he posts a fit involving cheap pieces that nobody likes? It's as if some Midwesterners are always apologizing for their area not being a SWPL place. Kind of annoying. Have you considered spearheading a campaign to get Whole Foods, IKEA, some urban ghetto slums, some extra violence (to "keep it real"), and a vibrant gay arts community in your town?

    How can clothing be important enough to you that you post to an on-line fashion board (something almost no males do), yet you want to buy a dozen cheap looking hats each of which cost less than a fast food meal?! This is likely a false sense of economy.

    Chicago has all of those and they are "mid west." Also have some of the worst (at least men's) shopping for a metropolitan city, guess it proves that point a bit.

    I totally agree with everything you are saying, hence why I hopped on this thread to give my opinion on these cheap caps. Believe me, I'd love for them to be better, I bought one.

    I see your point. But you see huge part of my reason for getting these were same as the people in 'winter boots that arent ugly'thread-- it sucks to have a decent gear wasted in a season.
    Whos robbie anyway?

    What makes these caps different than the Made-in-USA caps I can get from my local gas station? The gas station caps are cheap and come in a variety of colors too

    Damn, I don't know where you at but all I see are:
    [​IMG]

    and they usually say things like "young god" or have a playboy bunny on them. ahaha.
    They are also made in China and 100% acrylic which make my head itch sometimes, I hope the Columbiaknit caps are a little different.
