One of the questions I get asked is “what do I wear during the daytime?”
Well in the daytime, I usually rock a single stand out piece with something simple, like a white or grey tee, a pair of crisp straight jeans and fly sneakers. If you’ve been following my personal Facebook, you’ll know that that last month my stand out piece was the MCM Cognac Visetos Backpack, and this week one of my pick ups have been the Don C Mitchell and Ness Snakeskin Snapback Cap.
These items have been some of the top fashion items for 2011 and its funny that outside fashion circles very few guys have heard about these caps, let alone actually own them. Why? Because they sold out pretty damn fast and they retailed at a whopping FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS!
(find out at the end of the article how you can get Authentic B-Grades of these swaggin hats – that means not the $400 Python leather but leather with snakeskin print so you can breathe now that you can own them for less)
Some history on the cap: Don C, Kanye West’s manager and a fashionista himself, started reliving the “buck fifty” caps that were so popular in the 70′s to 80′s as a new fashion trend. The buck fifty is what they used to call a hundred and fifty dollar cap that only the top neighborhood hustlers used to wear to stand out. Instead of just wearing what everyone else was wearing they would modify the cap to have snakeskin to denote status and style. So, is it even a surprise we at 247 AM love this piece?
I got into picking these bad boys up while watching the Jay Z x Kanye West Watch The Throne Documentary which was pretty sick. They had Don C making Jay Hov a one-of-one New York Yankees Snakeskin Hat backstage and he later rocked it in front of thousands of roaring fans. From there I called my connections and got them sent to me ASAP. Oh, and I also got some extras for you guys so check the end of the article.
So again for the daytime, I personally like to wear simple white or grey fitted tees (Like Alternative Apparel or Commes Des Garcons), crisp denim, sneakers and these hats with maybe black Retro Super Future Shades. I like wearing them out too when I do meet ups at night for dinner like wearing a black cardigan with the black colorway on. I also like the fact it’s red (my favorite color), and that it conveys a top dog team (whether you believe its Jordan’s Bulls or D Rose’s).
Now for those who are still trying to appreciate these things of beauty, let me make the equation simple:
JAY Z x KANYE WEST x CHICAGO BULLS x D ROSE x MICHAEL JORDAN x STAND OUT SNAKESKIN LEATHER = #SWAGGER
Got the picture?
So, since every other generic guy is wearing a generic, worn out athletic cap, try this one out if you’re looking to get the looks in the day time.. I have this colorway as well as the black colorway in my own collection and I love wearing them with a white/red, black/red, or all black outfit. I love em!
Now for the good news: We have some extras in stock!
If you who want to own these caps ASAP, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “SNAKESKIN CAP” and I’ll let you know how you can get them at an awesome price from us. WE ONLY HAVE TWO OF THE RED COLORWAY and THREE of the Black Colorway. These are snap backs so the size is adjustable. Don’t even ask how much they are retail.
