Among the many different caps Chula Vista streetwear retailer Billion Creation carries (outside of our own SD Hat Collectors x Billion Creation collection, natch) are custom takes on San Diego Padres hats. For years BC has been a go-to for collectors of my ilk looking for something interesting and new to add to their repertoire. Billion Creation doesn’t disappoint in the exotic looks department; a lot of their initial custom releases featured unique materials and designs. This cap is an example of a unique pattern:
Multicolored red/orange/yellow interlocking SD and squatcho
Red/orange New Era logo
This cap utilizes a unique striped red/orange/yellow material as the visual pop for the interior of the interlocking SD and squatcho. I’m otherwise a sucker for maroon. Of the non-Padres colors I particularly like maroon is very high on that list.
Here’s a closer look at the interior of the interlocking SD. The striping really provides a unique look to the logo and is one of those neat details you have to look closer at to enjoy.
The MLB Batterman logo is maroon and features the same striped interior pattern.
The real flourish of stripes occurs on the underbrim of the cap. You can’t get much more unique than this.
Another great detail of many Billion Creation caps is the inclusion of a New Era sticker-design buckram detail. Touches of additional detail such as these really take the cap up another level.
Cap Availability Status: Uncommon
Billion Creation was the only carrier of this particular design and it has since gone on clearance. Your best bet is paying their storefront a visit.
