Fans who plan on attending Tyler, The Creator’s annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles next weekend should plan on leaving whatever headwear they were hoping to wear at home. New Era, the well-known sports team headwear manufacturer who provide the hats for Major League Baseball teams, announced on Thursday morning that they’ve teamed up with the fashion-friendly rapper for a collection of hats exclusively for the upcoming weekend music event.
Newly designed hats within the Camp Flog Gnaw Collection can be seen in the promotional images below and can be found on sale both online and at New Era’s brick and mortar location in Los Angeles. Fans attending the event at Dodger Stadium on Nov. 10-11 can also purchase their own sizes on-site at the festival merch booths. The new collection features a total of six different designs ranging from the traditional Ashton Kutcher-styled snapback baseball hat to the old man fisherman’s bucket hat and even park ranger cap styles. It’s not entirely clear why anyone would want to dress up like a park ranger at a music event, but weirder things have been done in the name of festival fashion.
Five of the limited edition hats are priced at a somewhat reasonable $40 per item, with exception of the park ranger model, which is listed at $80 on the brand’s website. In all fairness, the park ranger hat does come included with a faux leather strap, which is dope.
The unique fashion partnership should come as no surprise to fans of Tyler, The Creator, who himself is quite the apparel trendsetter, and has been heavily involved in the fashion world with other collaborations developed within the last few years. More recently, the rapper’s name has found its way into the timely holiday headlines thanks to his musical involvement in the upcoming remake of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”
This year’s two-day Camp Flog Gnaw will feature performances from Tyler, Lauryn Hill, SZA, Post Malone, A$AP Rocky and many more. Tickets for the event are sold out, but fans in hopes of snagging a ticket being sold or exchanged can do so by clicking here.
