In today’s edition of 20 Questions, Jamie from Cap Collectors speaks to Bo, an Australian cap collector who also goes by the name “@stat1c_”.

  1. Please introduce yourself – who are you, where are you from and give us some details about yourself. Also provide me with your social media profiles/nicknames. My name is Bo, I’m from Adelaide, Australia. You guys can find me on Instagram and Twitter on @stat1c_.
  1. How long have you considered yourself a cap collector? I’ve always been collecting caps, but didn’t realise how big of a thing it was until 2013. It wasn’t when I started getting introduced to forums and groups on Facebook that I realised there are so many likeminded people who are into collecting.
  1. When did you first get first start collecting caps? Did you set out from the start to be a cap collector or did you just pick up a cap and become hooked from thereon? My very first hat I bought was a Knocksteady snapback back in the days when they were around. I originally bought just one but then realised there was an entire set to collect, from there the addiction kicked in!
  1. Do you remember what your first ever cap was? It was a black allover Knocksteady snapback, used to rock that everyday to the point where it’s now faded.
  1. Do you always buy one particular brand of cap or do you vary your collection? I almost collect exclusively New Era now, just can’t bare myself buying anything else.
  1. How many caps have you currently got in your collection? I’ve stopped counting ever since I got to the 150 mark, but I believe it’s around 200-250’ish.
  1. Do you have a target that you want to hit or even a target that you plan to stop at? I don’t think I can stop at this stage, I partly blame the Team Fitted page on Facebook for constantly feeding my addiction!
  1. Do you have one cap that you favour to the rest? My go-to cap would definitely be the Detroit Tigers x Eminem MONSTER Tour 2014.
  1. Do you have any rare or limited edition caps? Definitely my Chewbacca Star Wars x New Era dog eared fitted, it’s definitely something unique which I enjoy. I also own a few custom pieces from the Team Fitted guys, all of them are definitely limited in my books.
  1. When buying caps, do you always go for a particular team or sport, or do you just buy any that you think look good? These days I tend to be very picky when it comes to purchasing a new cap, I tend to go for more exclusive cap and it must also have a good design.
  1. Fitted, snapback or strapback? My preference would be fitted.
  1. Do you wear all of your caps or do you have some that you haven’t yet got around to wearing (or don’t plan to wear)? Whenever I buy a new cap, I do try and wear them all at least once.
  1. What’s the cheapest price you’ve ever paid for a cap? Being in Australia, paying anything under $40 is considered cheap!
  1. And what is the most you’ve ever spent on one? Most I’ve spent would be $300+ on a single one.
  1. Having a large number of caps means you need somewhere to store them – how do you store your caps? I display my caps in a DVD Storage shelf – each cubby holds 24 caps and I have 3 shelves. The rest are stored in boxes and stacked away, I also have a glass display to show off some of my favourites.
  1. Do you have any particular methods or techniques for cap care? The hats on displayed are wrapped in poly bags to keep the dust out, I also own a few cap brushes and Nu-Cap restore kit.
  1. What’s your go-to place to buy caps and why? My go-to place for anything sports related would definitely be Culture Kings, they’re based in Australia so shipping is cheap and they update their range pretty frequently. For anything else I usually hit eBay or ask one of my connects to link me up *wink wink*.
  1. Do you have any interesting or funny stories you can tell us from your time as a cap collector? No funny stories but definitely have made a lot of friends being part of the community, so many interesting collectors and people I’ve dealt with over the past year.
  1. What do your family/friends/significant other think of your collection of hats? I always get told by my family “you only have one head!”. A lot of people also get used to me wearing a cap that on days I don’t they’ll always ask me “what’s wrong?”
  1. Do you have any new purchases lined up or anything you’re particularly looking forward to? Nothing in particular so far yet, however I am heading to Japan next year so will definitely be picking up quite a few hats when I’m down there!

A big thankyou to Bo for talking to Cap Collectors about his collection – be sure to follow him on Instagram to see his caps: @stat1c_.
