“For Skateboarding’s Sake,” the Somerville, Massachusetts based RAW SKATEBOARDS creates a parody of the classic Louisville Slugger baseball bat logo. Just like their “Word” hat (HERE) where they took the Ford logo and twisted it successfully, the “Somerville Sluggers” snapback cap also succeeds.
The RAW and VILLEN brands were both founded in Somerville, Massachusetts by small groups of friends. Eventually, those two groups of friends go to know one another and became affiliated. The RAW Store was the first store to ever carry the VILLEN brand and VILLEN supporters became RAW supporters after finding the VILLEN brand at RAW’s space in Somerville. To this day, the relationship is the best example of two entities teaming up and making an impact on a local level in Somerville, being that what would normally cause competition resulted in camaraderie.
Refocusing back to the cap, the front crown features an “R” for RAW and the “V’s” is for VILLEN. The “R” comes with a White backdrop, Blue bill and embriodery, and green under-bill. For the opposite cap, Green is the backdrop, Yellow is the bill color and the under-bill is also the standard Green. To get yours, click HERE.
