Best known for their extensive range of snapbacks, headwear giants Starter announce the arrival of their Black Label venture into 5 panels.
Black Label is the newer lifestyle arm of the very well known Starter brand. Here we see the brand take it’s first steps into the world of 5 panels. It’s a move that could have come a lot sooner in our opinion, but the market for 5 panels is still huge at the moment, even if that bubble is soon to burst. For us, the branding on a lot of these is a little intrusive and oversized, which is much more a snapback kinda thing than a 5 panel thing, but it’s the brands first attempt at 5 panels to be fair. What is good is seeing the brand play with the shape and take it further than just the simple “slap a wild pattern on it and sell shit loads” approach that has arguably set the demise of the 5 panel in stone over the last few years. The captain’s cap below is awesome, putting the classic shape to good use and breathing new life into it with a bit of humour.
All of these caps are available now from the Starter webstore for a very reasonable £25 each.
