Philadelphia's hottest menswear boutique is once again teaming up with the city’s most iconic sportswear brand to create another collection of unique, one-of-a-kind, custom snapbacks. Lapstone & Hammer and Mitchell & Ness present the "Black Destructed Denim" hat collection: a pack of eight hats featuring 7 NBA teams - the Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, and a Lapstone & Hammer branded hat as well. The collection will be releasing in-store at Lapstone & Hammer and online at lapstoneandhammer.com on June 2nd at 10:00 a.m.
This new “Black Destructed Denim” collection builds on the success of last year’s initial Destructed Denim collaboration of raw indigo denim hats. The process starts with a snapback hat made of sturdy black denim with a hidden embroidered design on the crown. Then a team of local artists cut, rub, sand, distress and destroy that overlaid denim panel to reveal the shape, contour and other details of the embroidery beneath it, resulting in a completely unique finish.
Every hat is hand destructed, each one displaying a varying level of wear, ensuring that no two are alike. They come packaged in a slide-out, canvas bag with a custom Lapstone & Hammer x Mitchell & Ness hang tag and a piece of sandpaper for any further destruction the consumer wishes to pursue themselves.
Available 6/2/2017, 10:00 a.m. exclusively at Lapstone & Hammer, 1106 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA, and on lapstoneandhammer.com.
