Why is there a hat shortage? Why is there a shortage of Richardson 112 trucker hats?
Popular hat brands such as Richardson, Flexfit, and Yupoong along with other apparel brands have had extremely limited supply/inventory the past several months in 2022 and in 2021. Richardson's best selling hat, the 112 trucker hat, has been sold out/hard to find on many popular colors/other styles, along with Yupoong's popular 6606 retro trucker hat.
Yupoong, the leading manufacturer of hats and caps with over 40 years of experience, has 7 factories located throughout Vietnam and Bangaldesh. Due in part factors such as COVID, manufacturing has been delayed/paused at multiple times and caused a backlog of orders along with continuing staff shortages and increased COVID restrictions. Shortages have been further exacerbated by port-delays and shipping delays caused by a huge influx of containers coming from overseas and waiting to be unloaded at local ports. Yupoong manufacturers and makes hats for such brands as FlexFit, Richardson, Yupoong, Valucap, Columbia, Quicksilver, Oakely, Vans, Travis Matthew, and more.
