Three easy steps to becoming our kind of capitalist.
Seriously, is it true that I can get a patch sewn onto any cap you carry?
Yep, it's true. (Seriously, we get this question almost everyday). Besides being patch collectors, we are cap customizers. We strive to give our customers the exact cap and patch combination of their choice. No comprises in our made-to-order model.
What happens if I receive a cap and it doesn't fit me or feel right?
Send it back and we'll put your patch on another cap that fits you like a glove – for free. We want you to keep coming back and to spread the word. And, for as much money as you spend on our caps you should never have to compromise. We ain't cheap, but we aim to please.
How long does it take to get my cap once I've ordered one?
Depending on volume of orders it usually takes 2-5 business days for our made-to-order custom-sewn caps to ship out. We ship all of our caps via USPS along with a unique tracking number.
Do you ship worldwide?
Oh yes. Name a country, and we've probably shipped it there.
Are your patches really vintage?
Oh yes. We only dig the old stuff. We try our very best to only collect and sell patches that are at least 20 years old and in mint condition. We buy from estate sales and reputable dealers we've known for years. In the future we will be selling our own patch designs but those will be fully disclosed in the description.
Where do you find all of your vintage patches?
We've been collecting vintage patches for decades. We scour flea markets, garage sales, and estate sales for mint condition patches. Now that we've been around, collectors sell us their vintage patches as well.
How's buying a cap here different from buying a cap from a boxstore?
Besides being longtime collectors of vintage patches, we're also cap customizers. We let you choose the exact vintage patch and cap combination you want, and then we custom sew your chosen patch and cap together here in California. We carefully select each and everyone of our vintage patches. We've been collecting for years, and we only buy mint-condition vintage patches.
We offer a lifetime Cap Swap Program – unheard of in the cap industry. We believe a well-made patch should last a lifetime. That's why if you ever want to replace your cap, send it back to us and we'll transfer you vintage patch onto a new cap. (Price starts at $19). Plus, boxstores are where evil clowns hang out during union breaks – or so we've heard.
Lifetime Cap Swap Program? What's the catch here?
No catch. We're vintage patch collectors. Some of our rarer patches are fifty-years old. Caps get old. Why wear an old cap when you can swap it out for a new one? Unlike most caps, vintage patches just get better with time.
I can't decide on a patch and cap combination. Can you help?
Yes we can. Just drop us a line and we'll send over a few mockups. We aim to please.
Where is Megadeluxe located?
We're based in Oakland, California. Home to some of the best people, weather and food in these United States.
Do you have a physical store?
Nah, that would be honest work. All of our sales are done here or on Instagram.
What kind of guarantee are we talking about here?
We offer a one-year guarantee on all of our caps. Unheard of in the cap industry.
Do you sell your vintage patches alone?
At the moment we only sell loose vintage jacket patches. Currently we reserve our vintage cap patches for caps only. What can we say, we're cap and patch customizers.
How often do you stock fresh vintage patches?
We get fresh vintage patches nearly every day. We post these fresh finds every week.
I'm looking for a certain vintage patch. Can you hunt it down for me?
Oh yes, we will track it down like a bloodhound. Just contact us here.
Can I send you a patch to sew onto one of your caps?
Of course. Depending on the cap and the patch, prices start at $29 for this service.
What's the best way to clean a patch and cap?
To clean a patch, gently brush with a toothbrush and soapy water. For the cap itself, use soapy water and a clean sponge. To rinse off soapy water, use a spray bottle filled with regular tap water. Lightly spray cap down and pat dry with a microfiber cloth. Repeat as necessary until soap is gone. Air dry on a rack overnight until fully dry.
