Mitchell & Ness Los Angeles Raiders Script Fitted Cap @ Rock-N-Jocks

Rock N Jocks has connected with Mitchell & Ness for a special make-up of the infamous Los Angeles Raiders script design. This unique script design was originally produced by Sport Specialties back in 1986 when it debuted as the official cap for the NBA Draft Day event. The script design was further cemented into sub-culture when Hip-Hop group NWA established this design and any other LA team cap as a staple piece of a gangsta's uniform. Twenty-four years later, this script design continues to inspire countless versions within team licensed and streetwear fashion arenas. For this reincarnation, Rock-N-Jocks sought out Mitchell & Ness expertise to replicate the design on a fitted. The cap has a wool foundation featuring the Los Angeles Raiders script design in semi-raised embroidery. It features the throwback NFL shield logo on the right side, Mitchell & Ness branding on the left, and Raiders logo on the back. Rock-N-Jocks is currently sold out of this cap but re-stock is on its way. Contact Rock-N-Jocks directly to reserve this iconic cap for the second round re-up.


Deadstock Sport Specialties NBA Script Snapback Cap @ ForAllToEnvy

The 1986 NBA Draft is often associated with the tragic death of #2 pick, Len Bias from Maryland.  However, the 1986 NBA Draft also began the era of team caps presented to a selected player as he makes his way to the big stage.  Sport Specialties set the standard with their Script wool snapback back in 1986 and the tradition continues today.  Fast forward twenty-four years later and this cap remains one of the most sought out snapbacks amongst sport and fashion heads. This style became associated with on court/field team authenticity and also becoming the official cap of N.W.A. Below are the Sixers and Bucks versions in solid wool color, no outline on the scripts, side NBA logoman, and green unders.  No need to remind you, For All To Envy's Ebay store and AndStill La Brea in LA are one of the top spots to cop official deadstock snapbacks.  Check or call for availability.

Hella Tight 'Land Of The Kings' Snapback Cap

Hella Tight has connected with Inglewood Hip-Hop group U-N-I to put together the 'Land Of The Kings' snapback cap.  Titled after one of U-N-I's latest tracks, the cap styling takes it back to the old-school script theme made popular by Sport Specialties back in the late 80's.  The color way is inspired by Lakers purple and gold with satin under visor and matching top button.  The front Kings word mark is done up in raised embroidery.  As always, each cap ordered from HT is shipped in a Hella Tight cap box.  Available here.
