Straight after the first drop last week, Jilted Royalty are back with the second of their Summer releases. Drop 2 includes a New Era made snapback cap, the Domination vest, and JR branded white socks.
I know many aren’t fans of New Era’s 9Fifty snapback shape – for me it was a bit ‘too little, too late’ with the larger crown of the fitted cap not really lending itself to the snapback style. That said, it’s good to see JR widen their options in headwear, and the black Jilted snapbacks look to be very well made, just as we’d expect from the headwear manufacturer. The black Domination vest adds a definite dose of Summer, custom made in the UK with screen-printed, embroidered patch and woven label details. Finally, the JR sports socks finish it off as another great example of something which other UK brands just aren’t doing.
There’s been plenty of discussion in the comments on the Drop 1 post about the brand. For most it’s become a battle of style vs quality – the latter being unmistakable, but perhaps a bolder style of streetwear just not to everyone’s taste. Whatever your take, JR are definitely doing their own thing and doing it well. Summer Drop 2 is available along with drop 1 from Jilted Royalty online, and in store at The Candy Store.
