5 and a Dime x 7Union "Uncle Boy"

Post mad late. But last Friday (Oct. 16) I dropped by 5 and a Dime to scoop up the "Uncle Boy" fitted hat, a collaboration with 7Union . 7Union, who specialize in caps and hats, is a Japan based company, which has successfully created a second base in La La land. The collaboration is an East meets West military hat.

The "Uncle Boy" fitted design is inspired by the USS Midway (CV-41), a US Navy aircraft carrier (lead ship in her class), which was commissioned after WWII and active during Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm. The USS Midway, now decommissioned here in San Diego @ the USS Midway Museum was stationed in Yokosuka Japan for 17 years before returning to the San Diego Bay.

The hat came in 3 different color ways: black, navy and purple, and limited to 24 in each color. 5 and a Dime also released two special limited edition shirts in black and white.

I picked up the black color way, which is actually my first 7Union fitted. The quality of 7Union fitted hats are fucking amazing.

Here are some pics. Enjoi.

Those who bought a 7Union hat know I moved the Official sticker to the center. My brain said, "Move sticker, not symmetrical."
