happy masters week


it’s masters week.  this has to be the best week of the year.  my dad and i hit the monday practice round.  i left with more loot than i probably should have including this vintage looking hat.  don’t quote me on this, but i believe they introduced it in 2013.  like the tour visors, it sells out quickly.  i did a little research (i.e. 15 second google search) to see if i could find a masters hat from the 70’s that looked like this one, but it appears to be a new design made to look vintage.  normally, i would scoff at something like this, but not this hat – i’m into it.

you didn’t ask, but i’m going to give you my picks this year.  i think bubba wins again.  he was drilling the ball on monday.  tough to bet against him.  if you’re looking for some wildcards, check out hideki matsuyama, branden grace, gary woodland, and russell henley.

nashville love


i’m in love with my city.  no apologies.  i realize there’s a whole other world out there, but i can visit that world on weekends and vacations.  i’m glad to see nashville’s own imogene + willie loves this city as much as i do.  they’ve recently added a nashville ball cap – celebrating nashville’s baseball history – and a limited edition t-shirt featuring the words – you guessed it – “nashville” on it.  i promise not to wear both at the same time.


bad news: the t-shirt is sold out, but it’s still great to look at.  fingers crossed they’ll make some more.

head games

i’m not sure about your weather, but we’re sweatin’ out here in nashville.  it was 77 degrees today.  it’s probably not the best time to be discussing stocking hats, but go ahead and get yours before there’s a run on them this holiday season.  here are my four favorite this year:

taylor stitch x ebbet’s field california bear ballcap

i snoozed on these last week and missed the boat on the navy and white.  i opted for the black and white instead of the more adventurous options e.g. royal and red, grey and black, and black and orange.  these are the signature ebbets field flannel wool ballcaps made for taylor stitch featuring an adjustable leather strap and the california bear (i friggin’ love california).  i can’t do fitted hats any more.  and in case you haven’t noticed, i have a small obsession with ebbets field flannel ballcaps.  they fit my noggin better than any other brand.

ebbets field flannels twill ball caps

i’m obsessed with baseball hats.  i tend to stick to current teams, but it’s hard to when ebett’s field flannels keeps nailing the reproductions.  this summer they’ve teamed with j. crew to offer twill versions of more teams from baseball’s past.  since i have a plethora of navy hats (i’m a yankees and braves fan – don’t hate), i decided to go with this red brooklyn bushwicks cap to add some variety to my headwear.  i didn’t take it off last weekend.  it’s the perfect summer hat.  the only problem with this particular cap is that one of my friends asked if the “b” stood for bayside.  i should have told him it did.

holiday gift idea: penfield sanford bobble beanie

in case you haven’t noticed, i’m a big penfield fan.  they make some great stuff like this sanford bobbled beanie.  if you know someone headed skiing over the holidays, this hat would make a perfect gift.

mitchell and ness throwback hats

i’m a sucker for anything that reminds me of my childhood, so when i rediscovered these mitchell and ness hats i thought they were worth a mention.  my first encounter with mitchell and ness came this past spring when i spotted some nba throwbacks at a local sporting goods store.  i dismissed them as too hip hop for me, but cool none-the-less.  last week when searching for a new bears hat, i found the mitchell and ness website (thanks google) and my jaw dropped.  i actually owned the original versions of all three hats above.  the hats are made with cotton twill or wool and feature the high crown retro shape and green under visor that we all loved when we were kids.  i’ve been complaining about how they don’t make snapback hats like they used to.  thanks to mitchell and ness i can’t complain any more.
