Here is the list all of you rockers have been waiting for since I know you’ve all been dying to update your wardrobe right? The top five band hats at Dress Code.
To start off, we have the “Scary Guy Cadet” hat from Metallica. Simple Black Pillbox style cap with Metallica’s iconic logo embroidered on the front as well as a skull/crossbones screen-print done in grey on the side.
This is the “pinhead” cap from The Ramones. “Gabba Gabba Hey” screenprinted all over the hat with the famous Ramone’s seal embroidered on the back. Pick yours up today!
Couldn’t forget about Iron Maiden. This rad black fitted cap features a screenprint of Eddie on right front panel spilling onto the bill of the hat with the band’s signature logo embroidered on the left panel.
Here’s a super snazzy snapback from Parkway Drive. Embroidered in whiteis their logo with another logo reading, “Parkway Drive” on the right of the snap. Teal Bill and snap closure.
This Bullet For My Valentine Fitted Cap is 3-D embroidered on the front in their famous blood drip logo in red, with two pistols embroidered on the back in grey because one bullet isn’t enough.
Over the past couple of years I’ve managed to accumulate a pretty big stash of hats. One of my favorite hats right now is the Floral Volley in Black from HUF. Some people at my work might say I have a problem but I can quit at anytime. That’s what I keep telling myself…
Here’s a little thing I wrote up to help you guys keep your hats looking fresh and super dope.
Step 1: Preventative Maintenance
First thing you’ll need is a stain and water repellent spray. It’s hard to resist the urge to throw on your brand new hat right away, but you’ve gotta! Spray it first and you’ll love yourself, trust me. This $7 can of spray will give your hat much more life. The bomb thing is that you can even use this on shoes too. Two in one baby!
Step 2: Cleaning & Care
Here are the baby steps in case you didn’t know already:
- Keep your dirty hands off your lids. Come on guys!
- Use tape or a lint roller to get rid of lint that get stuck on your hat.
- Treat funky smells with Febreze, the oldest trick in the book.
- If all else fails and you really wrecked your hat, take it to your dry cleaner and they should be able to help you.
Step 3: Storage
This is the most important step. I hear stories that my dog ate my hat all the time. It’s your fault! Proper storage is key. I use a plastic storage container to keep any dust or bugs from destroying my precious collection. The container helps keep your hats in shape, and keeps the dogs out. Then keep it away from sunlight because that will fade them out (I learnt that the hard way). Under the bed is a great spot.
