Floral 5 Panel Cap

LEROY JENKINS LTD, has jumped back in the collaboration saddle, teaming up with New Jersey-based lifestyle skate collective, PATERSON, for a new 5panel floral print cap. Most heads know that the LJ brand prides themselves on making things with friends, providing their loyal consumer base with a quality product sure to cut through the noise made by the industry’s mundane. This doesn’t miss their standard mark. The 100% cotton cap sports an array of quietly vibrant green foliage that is reminiscent of something tropical. The crown is also marked by streaks of muted lavender and fuchsia leaves giving the right amount of visual playfulness the Jenkins brand is known for since their debut in 2005. The top bill is comprised of Italian chino, adding a satin-like texture to the top of the piece. And the Kelly green underbill plays well with the green print on the crown, offering a bit of tonal contrast that provides just a kiss of “classic.” Rounding out the fine details are the almond hued leather strap and antique brass buckle and eyelets. Naturally, this piece would not be replete without the signature polka dot poplin lining found throughout the various collections of the Jenkins repertoire. This collaboration found its conceptual birth by the sharing of ideas between Leroy Jenkins co-founding partner, Ron Upperman and Paterson’s German Nieves. Longtime friends in the skate and streetwear industries, one day the two randomly found themselves calling each other neighbor. The idea sharing only deepened from there. Upperman echoes the LJ mantra of making garments for and with friends. “Being that we live across the hall from one another, it sometimes feels like a dorm. It prompted us to share ideas and treat this like a school project we are working on together.” It’s safe to say that this cap makes the grade. Both caps can be purchased online at http://leroyjenkinslimited.com and www.patersonleague.com
