So I swapped my hat at the store for the exact same one and size (for some reason the one i bought first felt very slightly tighter on my head, and the guy working there said maybe bc new era caps are handmade).

Anyways so just to make sure I thought I'd post the new one here and see if its legit as well.







The mlb logo looks very very slightly not in the exact middle, but I guess this can happen and doesn't mean it's fake




Still has some "blur" on the tape like the other one I had.

Cool thanks man!

One last thing I noticed that the "cool base" tage has this weird looking symbol after it. I notice the same on my other hats as well.



And when compared to ny dodgers cap, the cool base logo on the bills sticker is slightly different in color under the arrow where I circled
As well as the space between the "revolutionary wicking" and "superior drying" logos as circled as well


Compared to my dodgers one



Also the "R" is larger in font than the dodger cap. I circled them again.

It's real.

The stickers vary year by year, same with the tags and taping inside, along with the underside of the button. The caps are very different year in, year out.

If you buy it from a store, it is most likely real, unless you buy it from some shady Chinese store or something, you're good.

nahh the store looks pretty legit. its an actual store. they have a website as well www.culturekings.com.au

they always have rappers like Game, Lil Wayne etc visit the place when they are in the country. They specialize in rapper/swag apparel. although I am not interested in that type of stuff and the only rerason I went to the store was to buy a MLB cap.

Ok I know I'm nitpicking here but I won't be comfortable until i add this.

I noticed that the headband where I circled looks warped or curved.


Also the tags are not lined up properly as you can see where I circled, they start to slope down from left to right.


I know it's probably quality control, but just to be sure I posted the pics

Just seems to me that its quality control as you expected. I've got a few on-fields that have horrible stitching jobs, some of them are US made. Nothing you can really do besides go through every one of that hat they have in your size and pick which is best. Not really a big deal to me though.

You don't need to worry about Culture Kings selling fakes.
They'll all be legit.
In my experience the fakes I've seen in Vic stores are blatantly fake nowhere near looking real in any way.
Cost can also be an indicator, the dodgy bros. ones I've seen are usually sold at those hat/sock stores in the middle of a shopping centre or service station.
And mostly only cost about $20.

For example I've seen on fields at Rebel Sport, Amart All Sports, Footlocker etc and they retail for $50 - $60.

Ok guys, one final thing I noticed here lol.

The material inside my band of the cap is a white thinner material compared to my dodgers made in china cap, which is a slightly thicker black material.




And this is the dodgers cap

No lol I really hope it's not fake ha.

I guess I'm just a bit paranoid. Since here in Australia they cost more than in the USA (50 dollars)

Man, Culture Kings are legit, Ive got about 12 hats from them, They are licenced by New Era and only carry legit stock new era, mitchell and ness and Bespoke

If you check New Era site or even New Era FB you can see New Era list them as a stockist
