Chad Stilson’s Chief!

Here’s a curve ball in the Clink X Clinkers department. Chad is a longtime Clinker and a super super talented dude. When we came across his design of this amazing Chief on his Dribbble we asked if we could make a hat of it. He was into the idea and so were we. We were so inspired by the design, we created this custom faceted native print for the visor. We’re so pumped with how this thing came out. Head over to our online store to grab one…


Cotton Bureau Launch

For all you Clinkers that are designers, here is a cool new design site launched by our friends at United Pixel Workers. The forum is called Cotton Bureau and not only is it beautifully designed but I love the concept. I’m really inspired to get the Clink collaboration site up and running after seeing what the guys have done with Cotton Bureau. Go submit a design, buy a tee, and support a really cool bunch of dudes over here at Cotton Bureau. Oh and don’t forget the United Pixel Workers X Clink collaboration hat coming soon.


United Pixel Workers X Clink



Hey Clinkers! Head on over and check out these sweetum hatums that we designed in collaboration with United Pixel Workers. We love what the fellas over at United Pixel Workers are doing and we were exctied when they approached us to collaborate with them. The 2 offerings include one style showcasing their “U” logo designed by the badass Draplin and the “Pixelsmith” designed by us, Brandiose. They’re on pre-order now with a special offer if you order both styles. Go to UnitedPixelWorkers.com to checkum outum.


Kick this weekend’s ass Clinkers!

Hat Club Brand Pt. 4

Since Hat Club is based out of Phoenix and they have a bunch of stores in the Phoenix area, we knew we had to get some great Phoenix themed designs into the collection. Lucky for us Phoenix is pretty cool name for a hometown, flames, fiery eagle-like mythical creatures, the beauty of the desert. Unlike some of the styles we showed yesterday, we had a strong back-and-forth with the Hat Club guys to try and pin down the Phoenix themed designs that we wanted. We’ll go into more of that in later posts.

Here are the Sketches for the California themed designs. You can see the upper left bear head design, our most popular design in the line so far, in it’s earliest incarnation. You gotta see this design in the flesh. The real hook of this design isn’t California flag crossed bear head, but the white of the flag containing a detail sculpted bear head. It’s really cool in embroidery.(Now I’m seeing it’s sold out and not on the site anymore. I have a feeling it’ll be back though. I’ve added a photo of the final embroidery so that you can see the final result.) In the next collection you’ll see the what the upper right design became, I think it’s really cool.

Just in case you missed it, this first collection that we’re showing here is available now on HatClub.com and in Hat Club stores everywhere. Go HERE to check it out. Tomorrow, more sketches!!!
