Cochinita (by Clinker Jacobo): The Clink Room "Taco Shop League"

The closest I've come to a proper Cinco de Mayo post here was with my Asheville Yacumamas Copa de la Diversión hat back in 2021 and because it'll be five years until the next time the holiday falls on a Friday, now is the time to showcase this incredible "Conchita" cap designed by Mexico City-based artist Clinker Jacobo.

Jacobo has released dozens of designs via The Clink Room and while this is my first and so far, only one of their logos that I've bought, I'll be sure to get more in the future as their releases are always uniquely eye-catching.

The emerald green visor and rust crown lend some seriously vintage vibes here and these aged hues fit perfectly in a scene involving tacos, tequila and tunes from a playlist featuring a steady stream of norteño and ranchera classics from the 1970s.

The electric green Kong embroidery here sets it off completely for me. I love it.

I mentioned earlier that the next Fresh Fitted Friday post that will fall on Cinco de Mayo is in 2028 and I'm hoping to have another Taco League cap to write about, whether I got it from The Clink Room or some other esteemed purveyor of haberdashery. Until then make sure to continue supporting The Clink Room and please check out Jacobo on Instagram.

This week's Fresh Fitted Friday selection is not going on the Trading Block however please don't hesitate to reach out if you want any other cap from that list and you are willing to part with any of the hats on my Wish List.

As always, thanks for coming back to read about baseball hat geekery. I've got comments disabled here so if you'd like to discuss a trade or simply just chat about hats, please feel free to connect via the following social sites:
