This week’s Fitted Friday, features a newcomer to the game. Josh Sperber and Lev Mandel teamed up together and founded their own cap company, HELLA TIGHT, and it was from there that they would create a brand that would rep the Bay Area and it’s diverse cultures. So it was a pleasant surprise when these dudes reached out and sent ya boy some fitteds to check out and I have to say “WOW”. Everything about the package is impressive, the fitteds that you order from their site comes in a custom black box and trust me, it ain’t nothin’ like that flimsy ass New Era box, this is some solid cardboard that protects your fitted during the shipping process as well as long after it.
I have to say their fitteds are effin’ top notch, they’re easily on par and in some cases I have to say better then the New Era joints. The quality of the cap is tightly stitched, fabric is of great quality and the inside lining feels great and comfortable. One of the fitteds that HELLA TIGHT sent me was their logo joint called Maylay with the “hT” on the front of the cap and a paisley logo on the side, with tonal paisley stitching all over the hat, while the lining on the inside lined with detailed stitching all over while the lining on the inside is black satin. Pretty friggin’ sexy I have to say.
So if you want an alternative from the usual New Era joints, then you must not sleep on HELLA TIGHT as they are definitely bringing heaters and it’s not me just saying this, but by checking out their MySpace page, its evident that celebs are feelin’ these as well, as you’ll find David Banner, M-1, Flo Rida, Del Tha Funky Homosapien and both Method Man and Lil’ Wayne have been seen rockin’ the “Hella Belt” joint. Lil’ Wayne can been seen wearing it in the “Got Money” video.
