Every cap has a story, but some tell tales of collaboration, history, and the rich heritage of places that resonate with speed and passion. Enter the "Since 95" Cap—a black and yellow masterpiece with a vintage garage-inspired design that stands as a nod to a bygone era. But why the number 95? Let's unravel the story behind this unique cap.

The "Since 95" Cap is not just a creation; it's a collaboration between two iconic entities—the Isle of Man TT hotspot, The Black Dub Mile 9, and our very own Uggly&Co. The Black Dub, once a bustling petrol station and garage during the 70s through the mid-90s, holds a storied past that set the stage for this remarkable collaboration.

The significance of the number 95 lies in the fact that 1995 marks the last year The Black Dub operated as an active garage and petrol station. This number, boldly displayed on the front of the cap, serves as a powerful tribute to the history of The Black Dub and the era it represented. It encapsulates a moment in time when engines roared, tools clinked, and the spirit of racing echoed through the garage bays.

But the story doesn't end there. The cap also features the BD9 logo, a design that holds a special place in our heart as it represents our very first tee collaboration with The Black Dub. BD9 stands for Black Dub 9th Mile, a location rooted in St John's, the town where this iconic garage stands proudly on the Isle of Man. The design encapsulates not just a place but a legacy, tying together the essence of speed, history, and collaboration.

As you explore our online store, you'll find the "Since 95" Cap standing as a testament to the unique stories that can be woven into each piece of Uggly&Co apparel. If you're eager to grab this piece of history, simply type "Since 95" into the search bar on our website, and let the cap transport you to a time when the engines roared and The Black Dub Mile 9 was at the heart of it all.
