On Wednesday November 12th, two up-and-coming clothing brands are coming to West Chester University.
PhillyHats.com sells their own line of unique snapback hats inspired by Philadelphia history and culture. As they say on their instagram page @phillyhats – ‘We make fly hats’. Currently they are in the midst of a 70 day promotion in which they are adding a new vintage philadelphia eagles hat to PhillyHats.com every day until Christmas. The Philadelphia hat brand will bring their floral ‘jawn’ snapbacks, ‘fly’ bucket hats, as well as their best selling beanies to the WCU campus. In addition to selling unique Philadelphia hats, PhillyHats.com also offers embroidery services to upstart clothing brands, sports clubs, and fraternities / sororities. Their discount wholesale packages enable groups of people to get custom hats for their communities. Philly hats will be accompanied by Rare VNTG.
Locally based clothing retailer Rare VNTG features a wide variety of premium vintage sportswear clothing from the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s. The brand focuses on providing an elite selection of vintage name-brand authentic sportswear including jerseys, jackets, t shirts, crew necks, headwear, and more. After launching their eBay store 7 years ago, Rare VNTG opened their own webstore, rarevntg.com a year and a half ago. In addition to their website, Rare VNTG is stocked exclusively at clothing boutiques in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Recently, the brand has garnered publicity for their custom vintage “Gin And Juice” Snoop Dogg jersey as well as some celebrity clientele including Mac Miller. Rare VNTG is on social media @rarevntg.
Vending will occur from 10AM – 4PM in the Sykes student Union.
