MAY CLUB has always been committed to providing the most handsome items. In the hat section, it started selling the retro small hat OceanBeetle 7 years ago. Although it has long been very popular in Japan, the Taiwanese cycling circle was not familiar with retro cap bodies at the time, and many consumers felt that the price was too high. Later, after car enthusiasts came into contact with a deeper and broader car-playing culture, they not only loved the OceanBeetle, but also Based on Beetle, the Bacon old-fashioned hat model adds cracks, flames, speed lines and other elements. After we introduced it, it has also been customized by many players. Then Kimura Takuya also became a Bacon lover, and later, Bacon production has exceeded demand and is no longer accepting orders.

In recent years, thanks to Volkswagen's emphasis on retro car matching, OceanBeetle's popularity among retro car circles around the world has grown even higher. Not only has consumers become more accepting of small hats, but there are also more and more hats that look like Beetle on the market, but one thing remains the same: we have always been at the forefront!

Compared with the large number of mass-produced hats, hand-painted hats have absolutely no advantage in price, but the flexibility and uniqueness of customization are unparalleled! And relying solely on the painter's skills and beauty, this is the biggest reason why we invite Japan's first-line painter Shakin' to launch hand-made customized co-branded hats!
