You say ‘Thrift Store’, I say  ‘Vintage’.  When the caps look this good, it’s really just semantics.  Here’s the scoop from Faction Cycling Co.:

Named for some of our favorite streets around Chicago, these caps are hand-crafted from upcycled materials by our friend on Lyndale St. Upcycling gives old materials a new life and a higher environmental value. Most of our materials come from clothing salvaged from thrift stores around Chicago, but don’t worry, all materials are carefully hand-washed before assembly and smell terrific. These caps are one-of-a-kind. Due to their handmade nature, slight imperfections in workmanship are normal.

Of course, these are all one of a kind, and even though we just received this info and the pics on Monday, they’re all already showing as sold out on Faction’s website.  Presumably, they’ll go find some more ‘vintage’ clothing and make new designs, all of which can be yours for the going rate of $29.
