Mitchell & Ness "1983" NBA All-Star Game Fitted & Trucker Caps

Mitchell & Ness enters the 60th NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles with a tight collection of caps paying homage to the 1983 All-Star Game played in The Forum, Inglewood California 28 years ago. Starting off the collection are the West/East fitted caps featuring the jersey wordmarks from the 83 game jerseys in raised embroidery. A nice highlight on these rather simple caps are the raised embroidered stars over the eyelets in alternating blue, red or white. Both caps also feature NBA branding on the back and embroidered history note on the inside sweatband. Next up is the follow up to last year's 1986 fitted cap. Drawing high demand for that cap, Mitchell & Ness serves up the 1983 fitted cap inspired by the NBA yearbook font from that year. Black wool and accented with a green under visor, this cap runs a white sweatband with embroidered history note. The last style of the collection is a foam mesh trucker cap featuring the original graphic art from the 1983 game. The graphic is printed on the front panel. All caps are now available through Mitchell & and select retailers.

Universal Article Canvas Edition 001: Adventures Of Muideen

Here's the first installment of Universal Article's Canvas Edition showcase, which will focus on the creativity and ingenuity of featured artists expressing their talents using headwear as their canvas. In the spirit of the graffiti artists' Blackbook, this category will showcase many creative skills and styles on various hats and caps.

We set it off with illustrator and graphic artist Muideen Ogunmola, hailing from Detroit, Michigan serving up a surrealist assortment of sci-fi themed, comic art. Upon viewing his work, we seized on the opportunity to have Muideen customize three fitted caps inspired by his pencil sketches for a comic book cover he has in the works. The caps were each treated with a gesso base and painted in acrylic medium. The results are hard shell fitted caps filled with vivid colors and sealed off with a crystal satin finish. Muideen is collaborating with UA to offer up one of these custom caps to whoever leaves a comment on this post or on his Blockhead - From The D-Block blog, the definite site featuring his most current works and happenings.
