These dead-stock navy mesh trucker hats were originally American Legion hats and have been up-cycled into vintage rope trucker ACAB hats. They run a little small (ben has a big head and has to loosen these to two snaps for them to fit) You might notice the reference to the famous canned ham logo, but that’s purely a fabrication of your own mind. Don’t pay any attention to that.
You are purchasing this hat because you like it, but you are also purchasing this hat to invest in the dismantling of the carceral state. You cannot choose to do one without the other. We are not giving you that option. $75 from each sale will go directly to an abolitionist organization led by folks most impacted by the violence of the state. Only 7 are being sold to the public. Once they are gone they are gone and will not be re-released. Shipping is extra because Black folks and postage still ain’t free.
Transparency of Pricing
$75 from each sale is given directly to Black directly impacted abolitionist organizations without required reporting or the expectation of a particular use.
- CAHOKIA: an indigenous led social tech and art space that serves as a platform for creative placekeeping.
- BLMPHXMetro: a Black, Queer, and Femme led organization, that centers Black people who are the most impacted and marginalized because we believe ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER. We build solidarities with other colonized folks in the Global South to end imperial rule.
- Semillas Arizona: We are a grass roots organization based in Tempe Arizona, founded and led by undocumented people for the liberation of undocumented people.
$ 8.33 from each sale goes to the purchasing of hats modified to become ACAB hats.
$ 1.73 from each hat is the cost of ordering the patch from China
(Made in USA hat companies wouldn’t touch the ACAB content, unfortunately.)
$ 3.14 goes to hardware to replace rotted out navy snapback hardware from the 70s and 80s.
$ 0.81 is spent on custom hardware and embroidery to transform the sourced hat into an ACAB hat.
$ 4.30 goes to the state, county, and city as sales tax on the $50.00 portion of the price that isn’t direct donations
$31.69 pays for the labor of the artist to repair the hats, add cords, and hand stitch the patches. It also goes towards covering the cost of materials purchased in bulk such as the hats, hardware, and embroidery, and the remainder funds future projects. I’m losing money on this project until I sell the first three Captain ACAB hats. Regardless of profitability, the $75 is paid to abolitionist organizations after each individual sale.
This is a wearable piece of art. It is a limited edition run. It will not go on sale and it will not be made again. If you regret your purchase before it ships I will refund you the purchase price less the donation made on your behalf to Black abolitionist organizers.
