    Yup, the bill size is in relation to the size of the cap. That would look crazy if they didn't do this.. you'd have a tiny bill on the size Large and a huge bill on the XXS.

    Poten Summer 2019 Collection of Caps Poten's new summer collection of caps is here! These hats are wild nice, nicer than any other straight ahead baseball cap we've ever seen. They come in cool fabrics, some of which are even technical fabrics (water proof, wind/water resistant, etc..). Every cap style has a super soft and supple inner leather headband which has been lightly treated so it’s not destroyed by sweat. The caps have zero exterior branding except for the stitches which you can see from the top of the crown from the interior branding tags being sewn into the center of the crown. The cap has a medium height crown and the brim has a medium length to it with 19 concentric stitches which feel and look pretty cool in person. If you're into baseball caps, you'll love what Poten is doing. All three of these caps in three completely different fabrics are available now at all stores and online and they're now made down to size XX-Small and up to size Large. Shop Poten Online

    We get Fine Creek's jackets twice a year when they do production runs. Once every April and once every November, generally common sizes like what you're looking for will sell out within a month or so, but you may get lucky depending on when you visit the store.
  5. Really? I fully understand what @Todd Shelton is saying. If you don't take fashion and clothing too seriously it's just something to look at. How different is somebody wearing a weird hat to somebody driving around some insanely visually-loud custom car? The world of clothing and fashion would be so boring, and a place like Supertalk probably wouldn't even exist, if the people who took chances and pushed the boundaries of fashion didn't exist.
  6. 3sixteen is releasing a poncho/shawl type piece as part of their FW19 collection.

    They're made in a Japanese owned factory (in the US) and the pattern maker is even Japanese.

    Introducing Seuvas - All Canvas Everything We're excited to announce the addition of a new line to our great list of brands by the name of Seuvas. The name "Seuvas" is a portmanteau of blending what they do, "sewing" and "canvas". Seuvas is a brand dedicated to the art of producing canvas of all weights. They own their own canvas looms and factory which produces their canvas exactly to their specifications for the right look and texture. They even cut and sew all the garments in their own workshop in Kurashiki, Japan using vintage sewing machines so that the canvas reacts with just the right amount of puckering at the seams. The only external branding on their garments is a single hand-made porcelain button made from clay ore (Amakusa pottery stone) mined in Amakusa City, Kimamoto prefecture, Japan. Amakusa pottery stone is a historic pottery stone that is a raw material which has been used in Japanese pottery since the 17th century. These porcelain buttons are designed by Seuvas and made in the traditional way in Amakusa. Their first collection consists of two types of canvas for a total of 3 different garments. We have two long sleeve shirts and a coverall jacket. All three of these items are available now at all stores and online. Shop Seuvas Online

    Hi Kiya, how are you? I am trying to contact Toyo/Sugar Cane to see if they will sell me a new snake patch for the Oki Rainbow jeans you special ordered for me a number of years ago. May sound silly but this one is destroyed (see latest SC page) and I really like these jeans. Do you have contact info for them? If so, I’d appreciate an email address.
