I’m in on a few patches and bandanas.
As for hats, I’m with @bearfacedkiller, I have an “XL” dome (7-5/8), but the real issue with fit is depth. I’ve found New Era 9TWENTY’s fit fairly well but even they could stand another 1/2” of depth to really feel like they fit my head instead of just sitting on top of it.
Lots of good ideas floating around on designs. I err on the side of simple, but asymmetrical can add a little “extra” without being too busy. Like maybe “Spyderco” or the bug off center on the front down low and the other to one side of the back opening. Or maybe “Spyderco” embroidered on the side edge of the bill with a bug on the back somewhere. I’d probably sport the red and black ideas but being as it’s UGA colors and I’m an Auburn Man I don’t know if I’d get the red hat. I like the earth tones idea someone mentioned. Camo-esque would be cool on the bandana, but maybe not on the hat. I know it doesn’t really call on Spydie colors but an od green hat with black embroidery could be cool and then maybe a small red bug for a little pop on the back?? I dunno, so much potential with Spydie branding. Sorry for the rambling nature just some of the stream going through this as yet un-Spydie-covered noggin.
I feel your pain Burt! I don't think I've ever had a hat that fit 100% right. My head is like 7 7/8 or something around it. 7.75 is too tight and an 8 is too loose.
Depth is the other kicker, they've got to cover my dome. I want a ball cap, not a yarmulke with a bill!
My only other thing is, can we get a Greyman version? Non descript, no large distinguishing logos. Put a little Spyder Bug on the back, about the size of a penny/dime.
Another thought, make a challenge coin hat. The challenge coin logo on the front would be somewhat discreet.
Lastly. If it is an adjustable strap back, put the bread van on the end of the strap, like it's driving across it. That would be neat and the only people who would know, are people I don't mind socializing with.
