WIPHEADS EP. 05 - Edgar Sarmiento of HeadsUp

We're proud to premiere the 5th episode from our ongoing WIPheads series featuring Edgar Sarmiento, co-owner & founder of Heads Up Wear. We've known him throughout the years as a hardworking individual and caring family man. Having loved caps since his childhood, some of his unwavering passions are streetwear culture, WIP caps and music.

From one of our most trusted stockists to becoming a successful collaborator and brand owner, Edgar and Karell of HeadsUp got directly involved in creating the first 'Bonafide' Hemp snapback for Bone Thugs n' Harmony in Manila back in 2014 along with the 'Bonafide Camouflage' in 2017. They've always been fans of the group and were able to realize their dreams through their shared vision of creating a cap that pays tribute to their favorite Hip-Hop artists.

People like Edgar remind us that although the hustle can get tough, perseverance always fuels our passions to turn ideals into reality. He's come a long way in realizing his dreams, but he knows that there's always room to improve and innovate. We're proud to have Edgar as one of our long-time supporters and we're eager to find out what the future has in store for him and his creative business ventures.

Post photos of your collection on our WIP collectors thread at the WIP forum and tell us why and how you got started for a chance to be featured next. Keep it legit, heads!
