MTV launched 32 years ago on Saturday, August 1, 1981 at 12:01 AM Eastern Time. The original version of the 24 hour music video channel is now hardly recognizable. This vintage MTV 5 panel hat is from a much simpler time. The color blocked long bill cap is a pretty stylish piece for its time and plays well today. The label inside the cap is dated 1990. That year, Madonna’s the The Immaculate Collection spent 9 weeks at number 1 and Ice Cube’s first solo album Amerikkka’s Most Wanted debuted. We came across this vintage find while strolling around The Brooklyn Flea. Peace to D.J. Clark (his real name) and Willis Cash who have a great selection of vintage American menswear.
