About Established 88
Established 88, founded by Valmore Savage II, born in 1988, and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Established 88 mission is to continuously provide premium hats and apparel that represents Western Massachusetts in a positive and respectful manner. With that, the Hometown Hat was born!
The Hometown Hat was inspired based on a key fashion piece that was just missing in my closet that represented my hometown, area code, and style.
Established 88 is meant to provide unity in the community, pride, and a natural connection with customers. As the brand grows, let us all represent the area code 413, and Western Massachusetts with confidence & style.
