I saw a guy the other day dressed out completely in North Carolina team colors and then saw the same guy the next day dressed up in Cincinnati Reds Black/Red. Both times, with the flat, square-ish brim with the New Era stickers still on. Is that a fashion trend or do they just tuck in the price tag return the cap after a few weeks for a refund?
I saw a guy wearing a Cubs t shirt and a Brewers cap one day at ISU...
And yes, New Era stickers are a fashion trend...a relatively long-lived one, actually. I think that started at least six years ago or so. I've seen a couple of people wearing older caps that still have their tags
on them...which is hilarious.
