Supreme “Hat” Tee
Year: 1997


First things first, big thank you to @flpreme for sending in pictures of this item. It was one I had never seen before and as soon as I did I knew I had to feature it on the page. Featured as the graphic is a Supreme cap that is heavily based on the Gucci pattern that covers everything from their own hats to scarves and bags as well. Funny enough, this wasn’t just some design someone came up with and thought it would be cool to put on a t-shirt but the graphic was actually based on a hat that Supreme actually released. From memory, the hat was released in the same colorway as the Gucci pattern but was also released in a dark brown and a black version as well. And as always with these classic releases, that red Supreme tag just makes everything so much better. So, Gucci served as inspiration for the cap and then Supremes own cap served as inspiration for their own t-shirt release. Inspiration Inception.
