Dec 18 2009Crazy-Ass (And Expensive) Star Wars Hats
Looking for a crazy-ass Star Wars hat to accentuate that lovely mug of yours? Well you're in luck, because Japanese hat manufacturer New Era just dropped a line of dome-pieces fresher than really f***ing green bananas.
What makes New Era's Star Wars caps so unique is the fact that each appears to be a separate work of art -- the cap itself exhibits stunning wrap-around graphics and is made from a variety of materials, and the underside of the bill showcases imagery related to the cap's overall theme, be it R2-D2, Yoda, Chewbacca, or Boba Fett.
If you've got a friend living in Japan, now might be the time to call in that favor, or drop some heavy-handed hints for the holidays. Be prepared, though -- these babies don't come cheap. Ranging in price from ¥6,090 ($69) to ¥9,240 ($105), you'll be wearing quite a bounty on your head.
Admittedly the Chewie hat with mad-bomber flaps is pretty cool, but $69 to $105? I'd be afraid to wear it. And I'm not afraid to do anything besides sleep without my ass to a wall!
Thanks to Eli, Paulo, Danny and Fritz, who don't wear hats because their brains need to breathe.
