buckshot sonny's -deadstock 'caps of distinction'


This box arrived from Nashville, TN. From Max and Joe. Could go on and on but basically spent the afternoon geeking out on these deadstock caps; steaming, blocking (on an old milk jug), shaping them... don't steam too much or it causes the cotton to shrink -not just 'relax'.





Crown buttons have a faux braided-leather-button effect going. #extramile. You'll be able to buy these hats from the guys at Buckshot Sonny's if you go to NothernGrade on September 10th. They also have a slew of similar deadstock denim / red thread versions. Nice.
