This hat was a long time in the making. I found out about Ebbets a while ago. I frequent quite a few street style blogs and I kept seeing them come out with amazing collaborations and I knew that someday I wanted to order hats from them. WordPress headwear is pretty non-existent. I made an embroidered WordPress hat about a year ago but that is one of the only WordPress hats I’ve ever seen. So I started the lengthy order process. From the first email to when I had the hats in my possession it it took about ten weeks which is the longest I’ve ever had to wait for swag. But it was definetly worth the wait.
The design itself is pretty simple. I wanted to create something that was affordable so I went with a 2.5 inch WordPress logo on a navy broadcloth hat with cream stitching and a traditional green visor. The back features an adjustable leather strap. The entire hat is handmade in Seattle (which is quite rare and cool). If I were doing it again I would do much more customization but since that would increase the price I went with something simple this time. Only 25 of them were ever made so if you have one hang on to it as it will be worth a fortune once I become famous.
