With so many companies joining forces with New Era to create mainstream lids, it's refreshing to see the toned-down collaboration for the Ludwig Van x Quintin Co. 'Scout Series' ballcap. Using materials from past military personnel, this hat has a vintage feel with a modern look.

Los Angeles-based designers Ludwig Van and Quintin Co. have collaborated several times in the past. However, nothing has turned out quite as well as the Ludwig Van x Quintin Co. 'Scout Series' fitted hat. The hat is constructed using WWII-era twill and Vietnam-era camouflage, as well as duck canvas, while finishing off the overall look with a beautifully embossed leather patch. Other features include a denim stash pocket and vintage Japanese broadcloth lining.
