I checked the expensive version 'cause I know I'm just gonna do it no matter what I think at the moment.
And what I'm thinking at the moment is "$30 for a farking hat?" :shocked:

+1

Oh wait, would +1 be for the entire post or for either "as a woman" or "a visor would be great". If I was a woman and agreed that a visor would be great, that would be +2 right. However as I'm not a woman, but I think a visor would be great, should it actually be + 1/2. Now I wonder about weighted averages, as this is a hat poll, is the comment about the visor actually more applicable than the comment about being a woman, in which case would my agreement about the visor without me being a woman be something closer to + 0.72894?

Fark, I just Moosed my own post :sorry:

I voted for $25.

I love the Brethren.
I love hats.
I'd LOVE a Brethren hat.

I'm also a certified cheap arse. I cannot stand to pay more than $20 for a hat.
I'd probably do it for a Brethren hat, but I'd still hate it.

I hate even MORE paying a lot for a POS hat. Quality counts.


Just sayin.

I would wear a lower profile visor.

I would wear a hat, ifin it's not a crappy one where I feel like I'm walking around with a billboard on my head.

I would also wear a stocking cap (maybe a fleece kind) with a round BBQ Brethren logo patch on it! This is what I'd really like to have.

Yep - 6 panel, mesh back. Either an emroidered or a high quality screen print would work. And yes, you can find quality mesh "trucker hats" that will hold up to an embroidery job, I've got one from BBQCritic.com (thanx again, Herb :cool:).

05-22-2013, 11:13 PM
I can get them done in China and drop shipped directly to the USA if anyone is interested... They will be cheaper than $10.00 a hat if the volume is high enough. Case size is 144 units, but I'd need approval from Phil, and um... some money...

Just pick a style from here (http://us.headwear.com.au/)


There's a million variations. Go nuts.

I'm with you there Westy. The thing is that VERY good quality hats can be had for as little as $2.00. It costs another few bucks for embroidering and shipment. Where a hat becomes $20-30 is simply to make profit and cover operating costs in the stores that sell them. So yep. I can get you a good quality hat for under $10.00, and if the Brethren decide to sell it to you blokes for $20.00, then so much the better for all the members to keep this place running, or to donate to OBR.

Cheers!

I would buy one to support the brethren but would likely not wear it much. I like the idea of a cotton baseball hat. Glad we had the trucker version explained. I'm not a fan of the mesh hats in panels that remain hexagonal-ish. Thanks for offering your connection, SA.

Hey, hat wearers -- do you find black hats give you a hotter head in the sun? I like the idea of a black hat the best for overall look, just wondering for those who wear hats, if a black hat is hotter. Would a charcoal grey make a difference?

I usually wear a black ball cap and I don't find it particularly hot (or hotter than non-black).

Something with "style" would be great!

I don't notice that my head is hotter with a black hat. My biggest problem with black hats is that they show the sweat stains a lot more prominently than most colors.

I also wear quite a few black caps and I live in Florida. While I personally don't notice much of a difference I do believe they will be hotter than other colors. However I still like the black caps. Also black is slimming for those with the melon heads, Something to think about. :mrgreen:

Are your caps embroidered or screen printed?

Do you know how many caps your company ordered and what they paid for them (inclusive with imprint or embroidery costs + shipping)?

I am on the event committee for our local chamber. A couple of weeks ago I just started to get into the confusing world of trying to find quality embroidered caps and t-shirts.

It is really a mine field trying to find quality products at the right price from the primary distributor.

I really get aggravated in dealing with middle-men who are masquerading as primary distributors.

Any additional information you can provide would be great!

Many thanks for starting the Brethren Hat Poll. It was definitely needed.

Also many thanks and hats off to you for all of the hard work you have done in producing quality Brethren banners!

Another hats off to you for spending numerous hours "separating the wheat from the chaff" in trying to find a honest distributor that will sell you a quality cap at a reasonable price!

Yep that's a big issue. If you tell me you are the embroiderer there had better be a line of Brothers or Toyo's sitting in your facility when I come by.

The big issue with embroidery is digitizing the art. It's almost more of an art than a skill.

This could be a blessing in disguise…. what will we do with all the extra time after we get hats? We could be out on the streets getting into trouble…. or worse… boiling ribs.

No worries Michael, I know this is out of your control... but the hat thread ensures that we get to say "hi" at least once per month :becky:

Hi.

Is this the correct thread to be monitoring for when the Brethren caps become available?

Or, is there a better thread to be monitoring?

Thank You.

Yes, this is the right thread. We're waiting on our Grand Poohbah to get the artwork out…… and it's been a long wait. :cry: On the bright side, it is spring and we will bump this thread a bit more to see if that helps to get the hats done for summer events. :becky:

old = mature and wise, knows what the F he's doing
fat = knows enough to value great BBQ
bald = plenty of testosterone
retired = earned it

Just a thought.

I really like the Secret Hat Society idea.

Can I get this one in Brethren invisible?
