Mr Snappy’s is an exclusive ‘while U wait’ custom cap store that was developed by award winning fashion custom designer Simon Parchment.
Simon has been a custom designer for over 10 years and has worked in various boutiques on the prestigious Kings Road in Chelsea and New Bond Street designing one off custom pieces for A-list celebrities and premiership footballers.
In 2013 he made the decision that he wanted to focus only on customizing one product and make this service available to the general public as previously he was known mainly for customizing clothing and footwear and for him to put all his skills and methods into that product which he decided was going to be baseball caps, specially the snapback baseball cap which is how Mr Snappy’s was born.
He soon realized that there wasn’t a store anywhere in the UK that provided a specialist custom service for caps or if they did they were either promotional companies that would have a basic print or embroidery service for hats or online businesses that would sell their own brand of customized caps which was not personalized.
Simon saw this as a great opportunity to bring something different into market place and to give customers the ability to have their own cap designed how they want it.
It was decided that Stables Market in Camden was going to be the birth place of Mr Snappy’s and the reason for is that Camden is known for its diversity in regards to the people, the unique shops and fashion sense and lastly it is London’s fourth largest attraction with approximately 100,000 people exploring the eclectic mix of stalls every weekend, so he knew that this would eventually gain him customers from all over the world.
