    They are literally packing them all up today and tomorrow. I just picked mine up from the store. I live pretty close (2 miles) and had to go exchange something out from them. FWIR, they had an issue with Nike getting the merch out to them, but they literally have boxes all over the shop today ready to send all the stuff out..

    Don't hold your breath on the extra gift. My hat came today and it kinda felt like an extra insult. Hat is cool but really thinking of selling because as of now I don't really want to show support for malbon.

    I like my hat as well. Sad to report no extra special gift either. I am debating trying to contact Malbon again about it.

    Mine was $35 with shipping after I used a promo code. About what a normal Nike hat would cost. It was the only thing that didn't seem like it was extremely overpriced.

    Save your time. Unless you want 3 tees, 2 scorecard pencils and 2 plastic ball markers.

    Every picture on their website and instagram features a person who looks like their dog just died. Why are they all so sad?

    They captured this guy with the dopey Spaulding outfit on deep in thought on the 4th tee.



    You can see his internal struggle, I'll have a hamburger, no, I'll have a hotdog.



    They really captured the human condition with this one, to hamburger or not to hamburger.

    Here's another head scratcher. I'm not sure how this belongs on their website as a promotion of their brand, unless they're selling robes, but is this guy too cool for school or what?



    What is the coolest part about this guy? 1. The robe. 2. The impractical coffee cup. 3. The chains. 4. The 1970's green chair. or, my favorite, 5. The fact that he is the only person in the history of mankind to sit in a dark room drinking coffee with sunglasses on.

    So basically this guy represents a Renaissance Gumba, lol......I don’t know how that fits with the brand, but....lol.....This is too much, lol....



    Did you see the last picture, the one with the playa and his demi?

    I like this guy.



    Here's a guy who poses like a BA with a Wheels Up jet in the background. It's like the smallest one you can rent too.



    Someone should spoof this one. Rather than a Malbon hat where a Marlboro hat and pose in front of a SouthWest jet.

    I wanted to give you guys an update. I just received one of the items I purchased and I am very unhappy. The design of the hat looks like a middle school fundraiser project. It appears they purchased the cheapest close out hats from Nike (look at the Tag: it states 2017) and embroider them somewhere in Downtown LA. Actually, embroiders in LA would do a way better job. I don't even think they did a collaboration with Nike. What do you guys think. I am definitely returning this item. Never purchasing from them again.
  • sixtysevensixtysevensixtysevensixtyseven Members Posts: 2,028
    How much did you pay for that $24 hat?
  • ShinnersShinners Members Posts: 45 ✭✭
    It was around 43 - 44 including shipping and tax
  • sixtysevensixtysevensixtysevensixtyseven Members Posts: 2,028
    That's not even embroidered, it looks like a heat transfer.



    I've been hearing people calling the lottery a tax on morons, this may be a similar situation.



    I do like the balls it takes to actually leave the $24 tag on something you charge $44 for though.

    It is the same black Classic 99 hat as the 'Nike Golf Club' hats. It definitely isn't embroidered - it is a reflective heat transfer. And the heat transfer quality is not great. There is some smudging. I may hold on to mine just because I was able to use a coupon and get it for ~$35 total. It seems like the Nike x Malbon collaboration was better in theory than in actuality.



    Leaving the $24 tag on there that the blank hats come with is kind of a slap in the face.

    It really isn't that different from any other company buying blank Nike hats and having their logo put on the front and then selling them at retail prices on their site. Now marking everything up that much for just screen printing over retail Nike shorts/shirts/shoe bags is pretty wack. Their mistake is leaving the $24 tag on the hats. If anybody paid attention to the release though, you knew it wasn't going to be embroidered. You could definitely tell it was a reflective screen print on all of the stuff. They definitely did not do themselves any favors with the long lead time and the promise of a "free gift" that isn't really a gift at all.
