DJ J Hart’s #FrshFriday : Mr Snappy’s Custom Cap

Published

on

Hi guys, this week on my #FrshFriday I met Simon Parchment aka Mr Snappy at Camden Market in London, UK.  So, Mr Snappy is the most notorious Custom Cap store of Great Britain. I picked up this shop because you can really do dope customization with a huge selection of Snapbacks, 5 panels, leather straps, stones & more.

From Will Smith, to Ghostface, to Estelle to name a few, Mr Snappy is working for a lot of artists, actors… and I had the pleasure to interview him while he was doing a special BREAL TV / J HART / #FrshFriday hat, check this out :

 

P1090799J Hart : Hi Simon, can you introduce yourself & what’s your background?
Hi my name is Simon Parchment and I’m the founder and Owner of Mr Snappy’s Custom cap store in Camden Market Stables.
I’m a honorary award winning custom designer who has been in the fashion game for over 15 years.

 
J.H. : You are the most notorious custom cap boutique in U.K., so first why did you start this business and how did you reach this point ?
Mr Snappy : Basically I used to customize for New Era Caps and I did 2 big events with them in 2004 which lead me to customize caps for artist such as Will Smith, Xzibit, Maseo to name a few, that’s how I got in the game, and from there I focused on customizing different apparel products and footwear. My skills got me working in various boutiques on Kings Road in Chelsea and New Bond St. The reason I set up Mr Snappy’s is because I wanted to be known for something, because when you do lots of things like what I was doing it is hard for people to pin point yourself to a particular product. So it came to a point that I needed to focus on one product and master it and I chose caps because it is a such a versatile product which can be worn anytime.
 
J. H. : Which Mr Snappy’s custom you are the most proud of ? 
Mr Snappy : I think the proudest moment for me was being commissioned to create 5 exclusive 5950 caps for Will Smith by New Era.

 

J.H. : What is your top 3 advice to someone who want to start a business in London ?

Mr Snappy : The top 3 things I would say is:
1. Know what you want to do with a passion..MUST BE PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT TO DO BECAUSE THIS WILL BE THE FUEL FOR THE DESIRE TO ACHIEVE!
2. Research your competition and see what they are not doing which you can capitalize on.
3. GET ON WITH IT and don’t stop!!…
 
J.H. : How you see your brand in 5 years ?
Mr Snappy : I see my brand as the number one custom cap company in the UK and having in key locations around the world, with unique service and products.

J.H. : Do you have someone, like an artist, athlete, actor…in mind you would like to reach to do a custom hat ? 
Mr Snappy : I would love to do a cap for Nas or Jay Z that would be dope.
 
J.H. : What is your favorite (music) album to vibe while you custom ?
Mr Snappy : Mostly early 90’s conscious Hip Hop, but my main vibe is Curren$y love his unique beats and rhyme style.
 
J.H. : Okay, so this interview is almost finished, now say whatever you want, it’s your shot :  
Mr Snappy : Mr Snappy’s the hottest freshest custom company to hit the planet!! looool
Nah we just want to do things differently and not follow anyone..we want to take the game to the next level.
