Did anyone pick up one of the Mothers' Days hats? I'm curious what the material is like.

Any Bay Area folks handle the 60th Anniversary Giants caps at Hat Club? The two-tone looks MUSA in their Twitter photo but the solid black (which is probably what I'd have preferred) looks Chino.

I keep telling myself I'm never buying a patch cap again but this one looks sharp IMO:

I haven't delved into the HC inventory yet, but the ones at Lids (at least in Sacramento), in 7 3/8s, both versions have been Chino

Thanks, Izzy. Looks like this will be worth the HC premium for me if they can confirm MUSA before shipping.

Went to the HC in Sac and all the 3/8s were MUSA. The only Chino I saw was a single 5/8

Thanks, Izzy. They just put them up on the site and are listing their online stock as MUSA. Shocked

Their stock photo has a gray underbrim. Is that accurate?

I believe that's their own custom version of the hat with a stitched patch and gray under rather than the heat pressed plastic patches with black under that the on-fields have.

Just checked their Twitter and you're right. Well done, Hat Club!



Now if only they'd be allowed to put the patch on the opposite side...

The one I got was the onfield with the plastic patch. As mentioned, the one posted is more than likely an HC custom. I'll be in the Bay Area this weekend so I'll see what they have

To provide a bit of balance 4ucaps had these caps made awhile back.

Likely made in China. But they have a grey under and stitched patch. I commend HC for their efforts but it's not as unique as we think. Sometimes I feel HC gets too much credit and made in China gets crapped on.
