I picked up this bad boy at the outlet mall today. I always need to stop by lids when I'm at the mall, even though it usually ends in failure. Las Vegas is horrible for Padres merch. I understand the Padres aren't as popular as the doggers or yankees, but there is really slim pickings for padres stuff.
Anyways, this is a "snapback" hat. Apparently hats with snaps on them are having some sort of revival. I don't get it. I much prefer the flex-fit for aesthetics an adjustable hat. For usability, I prefer Velcro over the snaps as you don't have to worry about it wearing down. So yeah, I'm not a fan of the snaps. I'm also not a fan of white. It gets dirty too quickly. Especially with a huge white panel right on the forehead. It's gonna get some sweat marks real quick. So, all those negatives aside I bought it anyways because the price was right. 10 bucks. Can't beat that with a stick.
I like that it's brown and yellow. I like that it has the swinging friar. I like the text on the back. I like how it's green under the bill. It's awesome.
