Stickers?!

I seem to be on a sticker run here, but believe me in no way is this intentional.

So I was reading one of my usual blog sites, Daring Fireball, and came across this post about a how to poster on how to remove the sticker from your baseball cap.

I, as many know, am a hat lover and always have been, except for the brief period when I had a lot of hair. Now, that being said, it bothers me to no end when I see stickers left on hats, and they are on peoples heads.

Look, remove the sticker! If the sticker is faded, peeling off, or ripped, it no longer looks new everyone knows THE HAT IS NOT NEW! I really hate when people leave the new big New Era sticker on the hat. The sticker takes up the whole brim and looks silly when it is on your head and peeling! WTF TAKE OFF THE STICKER! Nobody is fooled, we know the hat is not new. It does not look fresh.

Please take my advice, I have currently about 70 fitted hats and not one has a sticker on the brim or anywhere else on the hat. Trust me no hat I ever own will have a sticker on it. Once it reaches my head and is mine the sticker is gone.

Magneto?

This weekend I picked up my 63rd fitted hat. The Magneto hat as pictured below.

It is totally skills and takes New Era into another level of hat design. The face of Magneto is actually printed on a satin like material while the helmet edging is stiched, giving the face the appearence that it is actually in the helmet.

The only thing I do not like about the hat is the clear thread used for the stiching. A company like New Era should not be so lazy to use clear thread in lieu of dying thread to match the color of the material stiched.

Like all my other hats I immediatly took it home and sprayed it with waterproofer, I like to use the Lids brand. Now that it is ready to venture out into the elements I have no doubt I will be rockin it soon.

Hats or …?

I came across this dude the other day wearing what appeared to be a mini-basketball net on his head. It is possible that this was a hat given out for promotional use! If this is in fa t the case okay, you get some crazy points taken off. Even still you have to be a little nuts or ballsy to rock this ish!
