Are they without the NE side flag? I’m not seeing a general uptick. They could be the typical HC type made in China custom. The real deals are drying up. Hell, the non flagged on fields are getting to be hard to see out and about. All you really see is the new released flagged stuff. I’m all for wearing those flag-less grey under customs. I love mine. I want to say it’s 70% new release flagged caps, 20% customs, 10% old school grey unders and non flaggeds. The HC Custom demographic is super tiny. I wish those numbers were flipped though. But that leaves deals for all of us. $40 for a new flagged made overseas cap is the norm. A $12 ebay steal is not.

I do know the players weekend caps are grey under. Same with the spring training on fields. Even some of your special occasion caps are as well. The only ones NOT are the daily on fields. Stupid huh?

I blame lids and NE for side patching every occasion. Opening day. Mexico series. Post season. World Series. Champions. Player retirements. Stadiums closing and opening. 9/11 and July 4th used to share one side flag. I think there is even one for the wildcard now. Lids has done some side patch retro caps over the years.

I love patches on my fitteds.

Feel like I rarely see fitteds now, everyone wearing the strap back or snap back.

I personally only wear the old on field fitteds wools with the white sweatband usually during the weekdays just because they damn near practical for any occasion, just my option of course.
I do have those "remakes" of the old WS fitteds knowingly they fit funny, but I just like them for what they are.

Pretty sure I’ve posted a bit of my collection of Winnipeg related teams here, but I’ve acquired quite a few more since then, especially in the last few months.

Some from Cap City and Pegasus (thanks to @henz0), some from Cranium and HatClub as well as a bunch in Winnipeg (my hometown) and Toronto where I now live.

I’ve got almost all that have ever been made, but definitely missing a few Manitoba Moose hats (dark teal/brown from Cap City, brown/black and a beef & broc from MyFitteds, a grey Melton from Cranium and a black/gold Suede brim from some other small shop in NY that isn’t even around anymore).

Long stretch but if anyone has any Jets or Moose hats in a 3/8 or 1/2 that aren’t here, please hit me up.

Good to see this thread still alive and kickin.

Before the flag, we had this

It's the hat shaped NEW ERA logo. Right around 1997-1998, they introduced the flag we know and hate. So the Packers cap is no older than 1997. What's the inside look like? I'd probably place it 1998-2001 if I had to casually guess.

New cheap find
2009 era cool base white Sox hat. Musa. Poly.

Bert. Bert. what size? eBay surprisingly has some sell for upwards of $50. People are dumb. I know Macy's has some on sale now. I'm waiting it out for now. So many are misses, rather than hits on a design and accuracy level.

Never even checked eBay, I remember not copping any other than a Dodgers which was great and reminded me of my OG late 2000s wool.

they are all 7 1/4. I think I got Yankees, black mets, rockies, Indians big wahoo, a couple others I forgot

A lot of times, you can compare the tags of NFL, MiLB, and NBA fitteds to MLB to pinpoint the era. With MLB setting the standard, the others follow suit with tagging and such.

Here's a 1997 new era MLB on field
It's the first year of that specific new era tagging, which is the same as your Packers hat. So I'd place it 1997-1999

And heres a Packers new era from the prior era, 1994-1996

Came in today from Ecapcity.

Haven't bought a fitted in years. Checked the tag and seen it was made in Haiti. Never knew they made fitteds there..

China is the new USA
Haiti /Bangladesh are the new China.

It's definitely a newer thing since the US shops closed up shop. What I mean by China is the new USA, Chinese made caps are at a slightly upper level over Haiti and Bangladesh. Both of those are second tier, if you even want to call Chinese, first tier. You definitely can't be buying online anymore. Sizing inconsistencies and you just have to feel how these caps feel, especially for retail. HC just instituted a hassle free returns process, or they are atleast advertising it more now. They probably had many complaints on their new stock of overseas crap.

We've come to a sad state of affairs.

Couldn't let this sit for $20 range. Quick scoop up.

2003-2005 Detroit Tigers on field. MUSA. 100% wool. Grey under. Brand new. Perfection right there.

For as hard to find as the regular grey Home under is, I still can't find the orange D road cap. Tough find.

My 1st fitted was a 02 White Sox home. Joints were soft and thicker, they could absorb a bit of rainwater. Now a days fitteds aint smooth and they are a bit flimsy, and will be soaked quickly.
