Slide Sox (Hat Club Exclusive)

Season's greetings, folks! I hope y'all didn't think I'd just leave you high and dry with no post today just because it's Christmas. And in 2020 of all years?

I actually considered skipping this week but then I remembered next Friday is New Year's Eve so what would stop me from wanting to take a break then too? Well, luckily for everyone who cares, I just happen to have the perfect caps for this week and the next so here we go!

This "Slide Sox" cap is a Hat Club exclusive and it definitely exudes yuletide vibes. The slides are a staple of holiday season loungewear and the stockings evoke fond Christmas memories for so many of us.

I like the dark green undervisor here for this cap rather than kelly green. Either shade combines nicely with the red and white on the logo and thus completing the Christmas theme however.

This year was a hard one for everyone and I hope what I'm about to say doesn't sound crazy but I'm really thankful for companies like Hat Club and Ebbets Field Flannels and their efforts to continue bringing high quality products to the cap-collecting communities.

I especially appreciated how Hat Club pivoted toward a strong pre-order approach to ensure customers who truly wanted in on some of the super limited drops were able to come away happy. I personally haven't taken advantage of those opportunities but that's really because I'm more interested in retro MILB logos than side patches and different colored under visors.

That being said, hopefully this method gets applied to some future minor league retro releases as it seems like a fair amount of them disappear off their site as soon they go on-sale. I am grateful for grabbing this cap while I could. There were lots of retro MILB caps that I scored this year as well and I'm eager to tell you about those in the very near future!

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.
