The Sand Trap Custom Imperial Hats

108 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I'm a fan of Imperial visors and recently got a few made with The Sand Trap logo.  I wanted to start this thread to see how many would be interested in a TST hat.  Gotten some interest so far just want to see if it makes sense to put in an order.  Price would be in the $15-20 range, basically covering my cost and shipping.  Post in this thread if you're interested.

Here is a pic of the visors, a few are available, can also post in this thread if you want one, as of right now, only 3 are left.

Going to be ordering two styles, The Sandman and The Prodigy (fitted).  If you want a fitted hat, please let me know what size, options are below.

I'll take a visor. Pm me the details. Will take at least one hat if there is an order.

I like either of those first two. The third one is fitted, which I can only assume would make sizing much more annoying. Plus (and I can't be the only one like this), I always seem to be in-between sizes and I wouldn't want to worry about buyer's remorse ordering one without trying it on. The first two are velcro, which is my favorite of the non-fitted enclosures. I think I would lean towards the first one, "Ellipse", though the only thing that gives me pause is that the eyelets are navy, and don't really fit in with the TST colors (plus, the second one is called "The Sandman"). I think "Ellipse" is my favorite.

I definitely get what you are saying about the worry of getting a fitted hat via an online order.  It is unfortunate that is the case because I prefer fitted hats and like the way they feel/look.

Of the choices available, I like the second one (Sandman)... name is good, I like that the eyelets are white and that it is structured. Too bad the fitted isn't an option... while I understand that there are issues with fitted, I like them best... Oh well. I'll probably get a couple of these as I tend to go through hats in the summer.

I don't really care which style was chosen, but if I had to choose I guess I'd vote for sandman because of the aforementioned non-contrasting eyelets.  Either way, I would order one or two.  I'm assuming that you are only going to order them in white?

I could never buy a visor, I think that's before my generation :)

I like the first hat you showed. It would look nice with TST logo on it.

I'm too bald for visors.

Would take two hats though.

Unfortunately, I shave my head clean with a Gillette Fusion and have that "Mr. Clean" look. A visor wouldn't work for me, but I do wear fitted hats. If you do decide to give a fitted option, I would gladly take two of each (L/XL) in white and black!

Bald spot dictates no visor for me.  I like structured hats the most, but would get an unstructured one.

I'd actually like fitted as well but as for the options....I like the second hat the best (sandman).

Thanks guys, yes I'll go ahead order some hats.  Probably go with The Sandman style in white.  I think white works best for The Sand Trap logo.  When you order these hats you have to order them in bulk so I'm not sure what the minimum amount they would need for the fitted option, but I'll look into it.

His total strokes gained is above the current squad average, solid ballstriking and pop, the third best birdie/bogie ratio, and he has a balanced game that should make him easy to pair with. Bubba's still crazy strong off the tee and on approach, but his short game & putting seem to have slipped this year. Probably a stronger option for better ball / fourball or maybe with the right partner in alternate shot / foursomes. His length is likely to be an advantage at Hazeltine if he isn't put up against one of the top Euro players with better all-around games in singles. Woodland, Horschel, or Steele, might be interesting options for better ball. Kuch has a solid overall game. is very consistent, and is stronger off the tee than Zach Johnson to boot so he could add to the squad - particularly in alternate shot. I wonder with Mickelson, Walker, Snedeker, and Johnson already on board if they don't need to be more plus on the driving though.
    • Sad. But, like the title of the old George Harrison album, All Things Must Pass. One night my brother and I were having dinner with our Mom. Somehow the subject of movies was raised, and Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein came up. We discovered that our Mom had never seen either film. So plans were made for a couple of "Movie Nights with Mom". My bro provided the DVD's, and we provided the food. My Mom being in her early 80's at the time, we weren't sure how she'd react to the films. I'm delighted to report that she howled with laughter. Mom always did have an active and acute sense of humor. She thanked us for showing her two of the funniest movies she had ever seen! RIP Gene Wilder.
    • For those who don't know, for my actual "job," I am a professional photographer. I recently picked up a few putters from a now out-of-business company called PLOP, and they are just gorgeous putters, so I had to photograph them and I wanted to share. I was looking for a center shafted putter, as it was what I was fit into. Unfortunately I can't stand the look of center shafted putters so every one I've ever tried was just not an option. That is, until I found an old (what would be original version) of a putter my grandfather had in his bag called a PLOP. I looked up this particular brand and found that it was no longer in business, but best of all, the owner/inventor of the putter made what he calls a CSH putter, that is Center shafted hosel, but the hosel is "floated" through the heel end of the putter, still welded and attached to the center. Even better, he was selling the rest of what he had milled on Ebay, including a few special putters. So I get to look down at what is a blade style, while still having my center shafted putter. It was a downright bargain for a milled putter, too.  I have in photography what we call GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), and sadly it translates to golf, too. I ended up buying 3 putters. One is a very wonderful black PVD finish, and the other is a nickel PVD finish that was tour-stamped, both very limited editions. I will do my best to photograph these and upload at some point, too.  In any case, I wanted to share a few of the images here. Unfortunately I can't upload the full size quality files but hopefully everyone enjoys a few of these. On a side note, golf clubs are actually extremely fun photographic subjects.  (Wasn't sure if this would fall under "clubs," but I thought it was more of a golf story/tidbit with the pictures. When I find the time to sit down and create a blog, I can put them there.) Feedback welcome, of course.   -Andrew.
