Ridiculous gang hats sold in Harlem, NY

there are a bunch of gang hats being sold in NY. Because of the upsurge in wannabeism store owners have capitalized on these markets to make some money. But the crazy thing about these hats was that New Era was getting accused of creating hats for gang members, and my contention was that the hats were being customized by a second party before being sold to the consumer, or the wannabe.

Who has the means to mass produce these hats and then sell them in chain stores with customized signage "Fly Your Rag" etc. though?

Does New Era dispute that these are in fact their products?

In an article published last year, New Era denied making these hats. I doubt that they would do that too.
