Why don't people take off sticker on their cap?

I see so many people with this sticker on their cap, but aren't they supposed to take it off just like a price tag on new T-shirt?
I am just wondering why because people just keep the sticker on there as if it add value or something.

Other parts of the world have high numbers of counterfeit Fitteds. The sticker shows your hat is authentic NE.

Realistically all the counterfeits now have stickers so people just leave the stickers on for show now. You can also buy entire rolls of the stickers for like 30 bucks on ebay.

I'll admit I am a bit of a hat aficionado, I have some 100+ hats. I don't wear a hat often anymore but I still love the collection I have on display. I leave the sticker on some of my hats, and I take it off others. Just depends on the hat and how I feel.

There are however some hats that are rare and I would never pull the sticker off of them. Much like limited run jordans, there are NE hats that have extremely limited runs, or customs. While these hats might not go up in value like a set of J's or Yeezy's they are still collectible.

Soon you will see people leave the price tags on their new LV bag, clothing and jeans etc etc.... just to let people know how much they pay for it.

Don't really see why people have to leave the sticker on the hat to show they got the real thing. It looks ugly lol.

I don't even bother washing my underwater since I don't want to risk damaging the fabric and someone might call Mr out one day for rocking a Chinese knock off. Jokes aside I guess for people who value these items find this important (like sneaker pimps)

I heard that it leaves a mark once it is removed. Perhaps that is an excuse to continue being stupid. I dunno.

Never really understood this, the day my son leaves the sticker on his hat is the day I slap him in the back of the head before removing and disposing of said tag. When he starts paying for his own shit he can leave the sticker on, hell he can even add stickers.

I watched somthing to do with that 1% VS 99% thing and they had a little blurb on it

Basically they said now the wealthy where as before wanted nothing more than to flaunt wealth and show off price tags have become as low key as possible and it's the more "real recognize" while poor people spend $65 on a hat and keep the sticker on to flaunt the price of somthing you wear, I dunno they kinda had a better take on it

Personally wouldn't be caught dead walking around with stickers all over my shit

The stickers don't bother me as much as a hat left with a straight brim, there used to be nothing dorkier than wearing a straight brimmed hat.

It was a trend from 14 years ago (damb I'm old). Leaving the stickers on and tags for hats and jerseys. It signifies that the apparel you're wearing is that new and "fresh to death". It's just fashion and how everything changes. For hats back in the 90's, the brim of caps had a curvature, now, folks like the brim nice and straight

Although I do not wear hats, the new era gold sticker still looks good on hats.

I remember when I was a kid, we'd leave the Nike/Jordan tags on our shoes.

But those looked cool...

Wow I didn't know 1 little gold sticker on the brim of someones hat could bother people so much.

Nobody still rocks the tags on their hats or shoes, the sticker thing is still around because the sticker isn't bad looking. It might fade one day, it already has to a degree, as most people seem to pull them off.

I compare the sticker more to something like the badges on the back of your car. Some people prefer it shaven and clean, others like some symbols/stickers.

Individuality its what makes us great.
