Seems this idea is gaining some traction. To help Def out, I'm going to add a poll to this thread. I'm sure I'll miss a few good choices in the poll, so if you have other ideas for a cap let me know and I'll try to edit the poll.

I like MadPlumbarian his example shown above, but personally I still prefere the OD cap with only the "silver" MTO logo, like on the patches, and maybe a black cap for the so called "SAK knnnniggets" ...  :whistle:

Thanks.

I should add that this poll is conceptual only and has no real impact on the final design. I just thought it would be a handy way to let Def and the MT.o executive staff know what we'd like to see.  :D :tu:

The OD MTO one with black stitching, is that only black stitching or the silver/black from the patches ? 

I like the idea of black stitching on OD, but I fear it will not be clearly visible (I have an OD cap with in black Navy Seal and the Navy Seal logo on it and it looks real nice, but it's not very "readable" if you know what I mean.

I like the OD, but I’d say do the MTO in the metal then do the SAK in a white with the shield in the red

I voted OD with black but I agree it would look better with the metal/black of the patch.

Yesssss! OD MT.o only cap!

I know I'd buy 2 at least. One to wear and one to hang on the wall.   :multi:

It is always good to know I'm not alone in that mindset. Thanks! :)

My favorite collector saying is: "If you have one, you have none. If you have two, you have one. And so on."  :cheers:

Edit: I should note, there are some things I don't have doubles of. Reason may be cost, it doesn't appeal to me that much, or it isn't something I collect. :ahhh
That being said, any knife or MT I EDC, has a twin or more.

I thought of something, here’s a pic of my cap, and look at what’s on the back strap, so what if the front was the standard MT.o but sneak in the sak on the strap?

For the record, no hat manufacturer is going to put both logos on the same hat, unless you guys want to buy a minimum of 1400 hats at $45/each.

Thread colors are usually a bit of an issue, so an MTO had with one color stitching is going to be cheaper than the Swiss Army Knights hat which technically has three colors- black, red and white.  And the embroidery area is a lot smaller than what is shown in MadP's example, so to fit it all in it would have to be very small, and people would have to get a lot closer than any of us are likely to be comfortable with to read it.   :ahhh

And stitching on the back.... you don't even want to know how much that adds to the price.  Might as well just buy two hats and wear one backwards on top of the first one.   :facepalm:

So, realistically, an MTO cap could be as low as $15 US on a preorder plus shipping, but we would have to have a minimum of 30 orders at that price to make that price.  After the preorder I'd have to put any remaining hats in the store for $20 US plus shipping. 

So, if you want to do this, we need to have at least 30 firm commitments.

If there's an OD MTO cap for about $15 a piece, I would take at least 2 (probably even 3), so you can count me in  ;).

OD with silver stitching would be my choice as well, but I will go with whatever everyone wants.

Funny this should come up, as I was just looking at embroidered ball caps last week, only they were Swiss Army Knights hats.  I suppose I could consider switching them to MTO hats instead if that's what folks really want.  :D

Or, in MTO tradition, we could do both.....

That is a nice looking cap. :D

More or less off topic, and typical “But I want a pony!”: I personally prefer patrol cap style caps over baseball caps. Far more comfortable and easier to fit in a way that's secure in strong wind for my big noggin.

I like it!

Do you have a pic of the style you'd like to see?

Let's let the poll simmer for a few days. If there seems to be some support for the patrol cap, I'll add an option to the poll.  :tu:

Such a cap may be more expensive, and that might be a factor.......

Don’t forget minimum quantity of hats
You would still need a order of 30 :think: :tu:
