Upper Playground: Upper Playground x Jeremy Fish x New Era – “Cheer the Beard”

Upper Playground is releasing a 59/50 New Era from Jeremy Fish’s superFishal brand to celebrate Jeremy’s new honor of being crowned “The Best Beard in the Barbary Coast”.

San Francisco’s Jeremy Fish has long been pigeon-held to receiving props solely for his artistic creations of creepy and cuddly creatures. Whether it has been winning the title of “San Francisco’s Favorite Artist” in the 2011 SF Weekly Readers Poll or being hounded by galleries worldwide to show in their spaces, Jeremy has been recognized over and over for his artistic career. But finally he has broken out of this type-cast role and is receiving credit for something new: his beard. Last month he was crowned as having “The Best Beard in the Barbary Coast” at the Comstock Saloon in San Francisco, and to celebrate Upper Playground is releasing the “Cheer the Beard” 59/50 New Era complete with detachable felt beard.
The New Era is made of corduroy exterior with an embroidered felt face detail and features a velcro attachable felt beard which fastens to the inside rim of the cap. The “Cheer the Beard” New Era is available exclusively at Upper Playground’s online store and at all Upper Playground locations.
