Lids put up the Royals turn ahead the clock

man what has happened to lids website? they are really slow at putting new hats up (cough Arizona white TBTC cough) and then when they do upload stuff they only upload half the sizes then a week later put up the rest. also this royals TATC isn't even in the "new arrivals" section yet.


the don't even have the Brewers and Royals TBTC hats.

Did anyone get or try the Mother's and Father's day hats? Wondering how the sizing is.

I got the July 4th as a gift and the sizing was pretty true, maybe a little tight.

Motherís Day, Fatherís Day and FOJ are all pretty much TTS. I would recommend one size up for ASG and HRD.

How's the quality of the 4th of July caps? Considering picking one up along with 2 others once there is a decent sale on Fanatics that includes caps.

I just ordered one lol. I absolutely LOVE this set, even if it isn't historically accurate. That helmet is such a delight.

I know this has already been discussed, but I finally got one of the new BP/ST hats. I found this Giants St. Patty's Day for $12. The Giants had the best St. Patty's hat this year, IMO. Man, these hats are just trash. The crown is too high, I had to soak it in water, in order to somewhat shape the brim. The whole hat feels like, if I sneeze, while wearing it, it will explode. Unless I come across some really dirt cheap ones, I don't see myself buying too many of these.

They must be selling like crap. HR Derby hats are poly so that can't be a great sign for these. I actually don't mind my Spring Training caps but it's still my last choice of material.

I hope these shower caps are just a one year experiment.

I think itís pretty telling that New Era didnít use them for special edition caps beyond St. Patrickís Day. After Diamond Era debuted, they went all in (stars and stripes, ASG, pushing teams to wear them for regular season games, etc.)

Seen nothing like that for the Pro Lite (or whatever theyíre called).

Something tells me the sales are lousy.

The material on that cap looks absolutely insane in that picture. Yikes.

Just to reiterate what I mentioned before while seeing them in person

The caps sides and back seem to just collapse onto itself

Shower cap is a perfect example. Probably one of the ugliest on head caps I've ever seen. I think I'd rather see people in their Chino Elmer fudd customs than what I saw. The above is an ugly wrinkled mess.

The fact that there are sweat stains after what appears to be one or two games is very telling. Nike and the NBA can get away with cheaper lighter materials on NBA jerseys. But I just don't see it happening here.

Disposable pro light caps are a great concept if they could retail them for $15 and people would know they have a months tops with one of them. $36+ is making us all seem like suckers.

Here's a less severe.example
https://www.gettyimages.com/license/938937298
Lots of bunching along the seams. USA made or not, I don't think they had a lot to work with with such light crappy material.
More sever bunching

Only saving grace was seeing grey underbrims.

I hope to never see pro light again.
