    $24!?!  I feel that hamburgers and milkshakes down at Pop’s Malt Shop would be a better investment.

    Isn’t it the same cap as what Goober Pyle wore, too?

    I want the Zefram Cochrane cap.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zefram_Cochrane

    Jughead’s  (and the hat’s) undisputed awesomeness duly acknowledged, buyers should be aware the beanie may also make another kind of statement — at least according to Hooper from “Chasing Amy”:

    “Archie was the bitch and Jughead was the butch. That’s why Jughead wears that crown-looking hat all the time. He the king of queen Archie’s world.”

    It may have escaped your attention but the guy’s wearing the iron cross as a fashion statement. Pork and the ‘Pork army’ are white supremacists who hide behind plausible deniability and wink-wink hipster racism. Think Gavin McInnes is bad? These guys think they’re even funnier.
    Check out their response to critics of their ‘drunk native americans’ fashion photo shoot, or the neo-nazi iconography they sell/ try to pass off as, yknow, really deep commentary…

    • PORK MAGAZINE says:

      Hey, this is Sean from PORK. PORK uses the standard lexicon of Rock&Roll lowlife imagery which is common to bikers, hot-rodders, surfers, rock&rollers, hippies, skaters, metal heads, punks & stoners. This includes skulls, drug paraphernalia, predatory animals, sex, gallows humor, weapons, the occult, the legions of Hell & Nazi imagery. PORK harbors no ill will to anyone & our attitude is live & let live. The magazine is produced by Jews, & has numerous “not white” contributors. This line of criticism has come from a small niche of social justice PC witch-hunt bloggers who were told to be upset about a photo taken out of context TWO YEARS AGO. Also the Iron Cross pictured has a Star of David in the center of it with “shalom” written across the bottom. It’s in Israel blue also.

    As a kid, I could never figure out what that those things on Jughead’s beanie were supposed to be. I thought it was Morse code.

    At least in this case the hipsters aren’t ruining something that coulda/shoulda/woulda been cool like fedoras.

  7. Matthew LittleFarmer says:

     Well…check out the pork shop-the iron cross pendant they sell does have the Star and says “Shalom” on it-not something that a white supremacist would wear…Pork’s shtick (ha, see what I did there?) is irresponsable (like Rock & Roll) but check it out and make up your own mind…

    That type of hat was never originally made that way, it was a repurposed worn-out regular hat with the frayed edges of the brim cut off and turned up.

    (Also the Iron Cross predates the Nazis by a looong time (and not mainly in other unconnected cultures, like the swastika,) and is a pretty common sight in the biker/hot rod scene. It is in no way equivalent to a swastika, SS lightning bolts, or other Nazi-specific imagery.)

    • devophill says:

       Never originally made what way? The “worn out regular hat” you’re talking about would have been made of one piece of felt, just like this one. Probably wool, too, because dad’s not gonna let you fuck up his old beaver hat.

      Also, just because the Iron Cross is a common sight in the biker/hot rod scene doesn’t absolve it of anything, really. There are LOTS of racist bikers and hot rodders. Pork Shop, eh, they’re probably not evil, just willfully dumb maybe.

      • L_Mariachi says:

        I meant that the beanie was not manufactured and sold in that form.

        The Iron Cross was and is used in so many other contexts that associating it with Nazis is like associating eagles or the color red with them.

    “Ever wanted to own a beanie like Archie Comics’s Jughead Jones?”

    Why, no. No I did not.

    Thanks anyway.

    Ha ha, these were kind of a thing in the early 1990s, too. Kids used to make them, in the 1920s and 30s, from their dads’ old homburgs and derbies.
