Arcade X Coal Headwear
Dirt roads, rodeo grounds, gritty saloons, and weathered cowboys are chapters in the story that is the American West. Coal Headwear and Arcade used these as inspiration for a collaboration that pays homage to the west.
The main artwork inspiration drew from Montana, Wyoming, Bison, and the open road. The bison art pulls together Americana elements with the bison and the muted red white and blue, plus design elements that imply speed, and motorsports; with the stripe, the movement of the bison and how the art all comes together.
The beanies were inspired by taking this bison patch and applying them to a beanie that had the vibes of workwear basics. Our tall fitting cuffed beanie comes in Charcoal and Light Brown (basically a duck brown color.)
The cap has winks of vintage inspiration, with the mesh insert at the inside front the way caps used to be made decades ago. The fabric strap back is super comfortable, with the added call out of the collaboration. The bison art was embroidered so that the art would have added richness and dimension. The brim is appliqued with a line of solid black soutache giving the brim a tonal design feature.
