Camp Hats. 5-Panels. Jet caps. Whatever you call these bicycle racing-inspired hats, they’re blowing up the scene worldwide and Japan’s Mad Hectic just had to get in on the craze with this latest release. Inspired by the colorful jerseys seen on the backs of riders at the Tour De France each year, these ‘jet caps’ (we’ll just stick with 5-panel) look like a direct inspiration. From the bright, tonal makeups of the green and yellow hats, which can be seen in jersey form on the backs of the daily and tour leaders, respectively, to the white and red polka dotted hat the concept is clear and sharp. And we wouldn’t expect any less from Mad Hectic. A leader in Japanese streetwear for quite some time, Mad Hectic offers seasonal collections that include graphic tees, button-ups, accessories, jackets and some of the most high quality denim we’ve seen.
Each of the 5-panels features a ‘Realmadhectic’ globe logo on the bill and sides that helps finish off the look. These 5-panels/camp hats/jet caps should be available starting this week at Mad Hectic retailers. Based on the reaction the red and white hat is getting, you might want to make arrangements to snag one of these right now. Will you be trying to land one of these exclusive hats?
