Imitation, the Highest Form of Flattery…

“Yo Chief, is that a blue dishwashing sponge on your head?”

UNLESS you were born a biter! This is clearly a rip of our skulled-out Chief Nokahoma fitted and it’s soooo busted! Stick with the O.G. PROCESS Nokahoma Fitted unless you like aligning your personal brand with, crusty embroidery, ineffectual design, and other posers. Damn! What a disgrace.

A message to the designer: If you’re not from the A, don’t touch our icons. Jam out some of your weak-ass “noncepts” on the Boston leprechaun.

Thanks to our boy B for the tip.

    @cherokee boi, I think you’re missing the point. Ours was a tribute to our hometown team. The other was a rip of something we worked on first.

    LMAO!!! That is hillarious

    I learned about this from estates blogspot page and i love estate. No disrespect but the official skull is a lot better. The designer of processes may be from Atlanta but from a designers view I think you just take it as a lessoned learned.

    Yours looks kinds like you just stuck a skull on a blank cap.

  18. MISTER PLAINVIEW Says:

    Don’t really like either hat but if I had to choose one, Official design is much better. More detail & color. The Process graphic looks like something my 6 year old nephew would draw. You guys sound like a jealous ex-girlfriend who just got dumped for a hotter girl.

    Not to mention it makes you sound extremely hypocritical complaining about this considering you pretty much ripped-off your graphic from something else.

  19. Georgios Says:

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I find it difficult not to see the resemblance from their graphic to ours. We are not the first to re-appropriate an icon and apply a new concept to it but it’s hard to deny that we were ripped off since our design was released a year ago.

  20. MISTER PLAINVIEW Says:

    I see where you guys are coming from, and honestly I’d probably feel the same way if I were you. But from an outsiders perspective the graphic on the Official hat just looks better, regardless of who designed it or put it on a hat. And when you make statements like this…”aligning your personal brand with, crusty embroidery, ineffectual design, and other posers”…you arent just dissing Official, you are dissing everyone who wears their stuff or supports them. That statement is basically saying “Anyone who wears Official is a poser.” Come on now. Any person with at least one working eyeball can see that Official is putting out some of the best designs in fitted hats now & for the past few years.

  21. Georgios Says:

    Like I said before, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and you can like which ever fits your aesthetic taste. Even though I think it’s terribly wrong but that’s my opinion. But an established brand like Official to rip off a start up company like ours is bullshit. Am I suppose to be flattered? No! That’s money out of my pocket.
