Can you post a picture of the hat, or a link to a pic?
OT- Official Sideline Hat
Clearly we were better off with the hats made by children in south Asian sweatshops. Why oh why would anyone leave Nike?
Brodie you mean southeast asia dont you? Because Adidas has the southwest asian market all locket up and Nike is southeast. Don't you go spreading your generization there it's pretty much like the OSU-Mich rivarly down there.
Adidas sweatshops actually are in China, which is more central-east Asia. But you're right, whenever a worker from an Adidas sweatshop runs into a Nike kid a fight breaks out. And then they pass out from exhaustion.
Let's get this straight; you put on a fur coat and a pair of Adidas, and you are fucking stylin'. What do I care if they're made by little Filipino kids for 10 cents a year? That's what this industry is about -- style.
That's how we roll in the L-I-V-O-N-I-A, son.
I have the white one and I noticed the same thing, the stripes are little off kilter. But I dont care, no one else should be staring that long at my head.
It's probably just shoddy craftsmanship.
The screen prints on my student shirt from last season (Adidas) are off-center and slanted; ditto for 2007 (Nike).
The three stripes in the center look weird. They just sort of... end. I'm not a fan.
I don't think it would look good, but I wonder what a hat that looks like the winged helmet would look like. It could look pretty bad but I'd almost certainly still buy it.
I've seen one before. It looks really bad.
They are doing a marvelous job...
If I remember the comment correctly, politics = auto-negbang, no matter how innocent it's meant.
It was economics... But hey whatever floats your boat
Thanks for the link.
I can't be sure without seeing it in person, but from what I can tell from the the two pictures on the website, it doesn't look very good. I think that might partially be because the colors look far too bright (they look garish to me). I think a slightly more understated hat with slightly thinner lines might look better. The wings could use some small adjustment in placement (something that I can't quite put my finger on looks "off" about them).
God, that's awful.
Nothing Michigan-football related is off-topic.
No hat will ever match this one.
Yeah, I agree. The sideline hat should simply be a maize block M (updated, of course, as we no longer use such a generic font) on a blue hat. The current one is far too busy.
This style is close to perfect:
Brodie, the hat Bo is wearing is the traditional hat I grew up with. I do not like the busy hats, but i always liked the generic font much better than the updated fatter block M in your links.
I like it even more simple:
That should be our official M, too. the Adidas M is way too thick. Nike messed it up at the end, too. The hats the baseball team wears with the yellow underbills are absolutely terrible.
I just got the white slouch hat.
I love it. If anyone is looking to get a new hat, FWIW. It fits nice - a lot like the franchise style hat. I preferred the adjustable (which I usually hate) over the flex fit. The flex fit never fit tight enough on my head.
the yellow at the sides of the bill and the white piping, and the game day hat's not bad.
I like the Adidas "M" visor.
To the OP - this is going to be douchey, but I cannot help myself,
"...and the three yellow adidas stripes on the bill are way off-centered and it makes the hat look crooked on my head whenever I put it on."
Your construction, if read grammatically, reads that the hat looks crooked whenever you put your head on. Not trying to be a grammar cop, just saying that if read literally your sentence imparts a funny image.
Yes I'm bored. Please. season. start.
I bought this one, plain white with the blue block M and slight maize outline. Also has Michigan written across the back. I really like it, nice and simple. This is the structured/fitted hat but it stretches a little bit so it should be a nice fit.
I have the M white hat with "ESPN College Gameday" on the back tab and i wear it constantly, notably the golf course and all barbeques at my brother's house since he's a Domer. Spritz some SprayNWash on the sweat stains and wash it in the top rack of the dishwasher and it's brand new again. Me & Les Miles, we get it about hats. White rules.
I got the new sideline hat and my stripes are on center. Sweatshops tend to mess up every couple hats.
