Brother Parrothead has been the go-to guy on hats. He is in the midst of some big changes and a move to Florida at the present time so putting together a new order is on hold for a bit.

A lot of us want one or two, so stay tuned.

I was somewhat surprised that the Brethren merchandise store does not carry the hats.

To put it mildly, the Cafe Press version Prototype was a complete POS.

Cafepress uses a generic hat, then applies a logo (silkscreen, I think)

The Brethren hat is a high quality hat to begin with, which the logo is embroidered on. It's more like a patch feel, but its not a patch, its one whole unit.

The hats are a bit more expensive, and need to be run in batches of 144 at a time.

It took Greg/Phil many months to even find an embroiderer that could get the color scheme right.

Its worth waiting for, trust me.

Ah! Now, I understand. Thank you!

This does cause me to wonder, however, if perhaps an expanded line of 'higher quality' items might be in order with the same embroidery system. I, for one, would be interested in a Brethren logo polo shirt. What I am thinking is a polo with the brethren logo on the lower edge of one of the sleeves. This design will allow me to put my team/company logo on the chest area of the shirt and have the brethren logo on the sleeve edge. Just one man's idea.

As it is, I'll just wait for the hats to come available again.

I've got a couple of the original hats...the quality of the embroidery was fantastic. The hats were directly emboidered with very high density. Setup alone is usually several hundred dollars.

The hats Greg procures are top quality and worth the wait and cost.

Definately worth waiting for.

Here's a close up of the front of the hat. Very nice quality.

When ever they become available I am in for 4, one for each member of the team. While we are all wishing, I would like to see a light weight jacket with the logo on it or maybe a patch type thingy we could apply to a jacket. Just my .02 cents worth and we all know what that's worth.

I do not think it will be hard to sell 144 when he is able to do them. I want 4 possibly more. I know he is busy from previous threads
