For the first time in Hat on a Hat history, we are stepping out of Michigan. I had seen the Louisville Bats, alternative logo the “Louisville Mashers” and though it would be a great one to head to next. Then I saw their Copa de la Diversion hat and that is dope. And they have another alternate identity and THAT is sweet. I may have to do all three this week. Hell, even their standard cap is clean.
But first we start with the Mashers.
Logo Quality: 7/10
I like the name and I like the logo. They are in Kentucky, you mash in for bourbon. Kentucky does well with bourbon. Get it? Well this has the corn bag, the barrel and a bat…all used to mash in different ways. It catches the eye and gets the job done.
They offer two colors for caps but I really like the blue and the red. Really makes it pop and stand out. Don’t know what the colors have to do with the team or bourbon but I like it.
I am a sucker for a food or drink inspired logo/name. Especially alcoholic. I love me some bourbon and the Mashers play off that well as the bourbon capital and make this logo an eye catcher, an ice breaker and a conversation starter. It’s fun, it’s fitting, it works.
The black and grey work well with anything but the blue and red are a great hat for the summer months. Who doesn’t have blue and red to go with the hat as you hit the beach or a bar?
An overall great cap. Great logo and a fitting style for the local crowd. A winner and we will see if this is even the best hat the team offers in their store. Stay tuned.
