Digging Deadstock

Forget about bedroom rude boys on webcams giving themselves biblical names, unpacking a few script hats from a box that a friend of grandpa mailed them. A real score doesn't come in a USPS box wrapped in tissue paper. You gotta go out there and dig that...

Much more to be revealed soon..

A little G never thought, that I could change the world

N.W.A. helped popularize the Raiders Starter jacket to the point that people were stealing — and in a few cases, even killing — to get their hands on one. What's your reaction to the social cost of your success?
America is caught up in materialism. People will fight over anything. When a man comes and robs a man for a bag full of groceries, we don't say we should ban groceries. People are always going to take things from each other. When something like that happens, I'm not like, "Aw, maybe we need to tone it down, maybe we need to wear purple and gold." You've got to chalk that up to the sick materialism we're all caught up in.
Yeah I realise its a chalkline jacket...but the point stands. Dope!

Vintage Amcap Snapbacks. Bossing!

Amcap were the largest European manufacturer of licensed US sporting headwear in the 90s. Had the company stretched worldwide, they could bossed things! These two are their signature lines. The first is quite similar to the AJD Sunburst, while the second is pretty damn unique. We have more styles in both online.

This is how we flip the script

Sports Specialties should have done this more often. Starter were the brand that realised dudes were wearing their hats backwards, and put their distinctive logo smack bang in the middle for all to see - but Sports Specialties have some flipped up shit too. These Magic hats look like a regular cotton two tone from the front, but spin the hat backwards and you've got Sports Specialties' trophy line right there. We also have some Phoenix Suns in this style somewhere...

Deadstock Delivery

A deadstock bomb just went off in the Agora warehouse. And just in time too.

Fashion Beans just blogged about the remarkable resurgence of the men's sweatshirt. Its true; every streetwear brand out there is pumping out new designs each week of the classic wardrobe staple. Just as well that Agora Vintage just got in hundreds of deadstock printed sweatshirts as well as T-Shirts and tanks all USA made from 1990s with tags. We got a lot of new Mighty Ducks gear too!

For you London cats, lots of this gear will be available at the Blitz store on Hanbury lane.

Universal Prosona NFL Snapbacks

Universal was one of the dopest 90s snapback hat brands. They were always kinda under the radar, never really competing with the big boys. And they never had a signature line per se - no one hat style you could associate with them - but their Prosona is one of Agora Vintage's all time faves, by any brand.

While Universal made NBA snaps too, this line was purely NFL. The Prosona name came from mixing the words "professional" and "persona." Each hat would come with its own unique hang tag, with a picture associated with the team (not unlike the Starter Image Collection premise.)

The type font on each hat looks similar, but each one is in fact tweaked to mirror the personality of the team. The Redskins for instance, has tribal style affections to the font face, and a feathered Native American headpiece attached to the R. The Seahawks has a spiky, beak-like edge to the font, while the Oilers font is assembled by what looks like piping.

The hats are neatly topped off with the contrast snap and threading on the air holes. Green under brim as standard.  The Prosona line does not come with the universal logo on the back, which is a shame, because its dope.  See the bulls pictured below.
