Thought this would be an interesting question to pose to the board. Maybe help pass some time and get our mind off football.
What is your ideal Michigan hat?
What type of hat do you sport on saturdays?
Are you superstitous or have you worn the same hat for 20+ years?
I have a variety of Michigan hats and really have no prefenece for what I wear any given week. Whatever I pick up that day, I wear. My dad, on the other hand, has been sporting the same hat for the past 12 years since Michigan has won the NC. Blue with Maize lettering, adjustable, and a nice looking Rose next to the Block M. Soon I will be able to buy him a new one!
I am a straight brim (flat bill, if you will) hat wearing kind of guy. I wear it backwards. I am really disappointed, however, in the quality of straight brim hats and the lack of traditional non-ghetto straight brims. All I want is an all blue or maize hat with a block M (could be old school logo) on the front and either nothing or a "Michigan" logo on the back.
But here is what I can choose from...
1) Addidas #1...Colors, Fine. Addidas logo on the side, Fine. But what you can't see is the other block M in the back. Seems a bit redundant.
2) Addidas #2...Color. Good to Great (More "on-field" colors). But an addidas logo in the back is not shown. Does not bode well with me when I wear it backwards . This is what the baseball team wears.
3) New Era...Colors. Terrible. Block M. HUGE. But "Michigan" log on the back.
4-1million+) Lids.com has a plethora of just rediculous looking hats. For Instance,
Ok I actually semi-like that last one. Well at least the old school logo.
I realize I might be one of few on this board who likes to wear a straight brim hat, but I am a baseball guy. I also have my fair share of "curved bill" that I often sport. Maybe I just have not dug far enough to find one that I am looking for, but is it really that hard to come up with a traditional hat.
