Hat on a Hat: Derby City Mint Juleps

Louisville knows how to market themselves. They have some great alternate logos available so I’m going to hit them three times this week. First we did the Louisville Mashers and now we turn to the Derby City Mint Juleps.


Logo Quality: 8/10

Awesome. You instantly know what it is and it catches the eye. A bit busy and cartoonish to be a perfect score but a winner nonetheless. Never had a mint julep but this makes me thirsty for one.

Colors: 8/10

Again Louisville offers two color sets for their alternate identities and these are much more bold than the Mashers. I personally would go with the green and blue but the pink and gold is even something that seems feminine but I’d wear. Pastels and bold colors are all the rage at the Kentucky Derby. Perfectly appropriate.

Creativity: 8/10

On Monday we looked at the first step in the bourbon lifespan with the Mashers. Now we are later in the timeline with the premiere Louisville cocktail, the Mint Julep. The colors fit the pageantry and again, I love an alcohol themed nickname.

Wearability: 4/5

You are looking to make a statement and catch eyes if you are wearing a hat with this logo so the colors help that. They just make it rough to wear everyday.

Overall: 29/35

We have a new #2. The Mint Juleps jump the Locos for the second highest rated hat in the rankings. This hat is a beaut, a unique, fun logo that you know you aren’t going to be seeing being worn by everybody else. You stand out with this set up without being obnoxious.
