One upon a time in a secret lab in Northern California...
Megadeluxe was founded by Wes Garcia, former Fedex courier and Apple designer. Frustrated that he couldn't find anyone to sew his vintage patches onto new ball caps, Wes began handsewing his vintage patches onto hats. Wes posted some of these caps to a few friends on Instagram who spread the word. And from there a custom cap business was born. (Much to his surprise, it took off). Although Megadeluxe now ships out thousands of custom caps a year, Wes still selects every vintage patch and machine sews every custom cap.
Welcome custom cap builders. You pick a patch and a cap. We sew & ship. Yep, it’s that simple.
Hard to believe, but yes, you can really get the patch you want sewn onto any cap we carry. We carry a large selection of popular caps: Flexfit, Yupoong, Richardson, and New Era.
We like to think of ourselves as vintage patch preservationists. That's why if your Megadeluxe cap ever gets damaged or worn over time, send your vintage patch back to us and we'll sew it onto a new cap at a fair market price. We believe a well-made patch should last a lifetime.
Vintage patch picking is how we started. Cap customizers is what we became.
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 that are around twenty years-old.
