People ask us all the time – “What is the best way to clean my hat?” Well, bookmark this page so you’ll always have it handy. Not only will you learn how to clean your hat, but also how to protect it in the future.
We normally recommend washing your hat on the top rack of your dishwasher, made easier with Ball Cap Buddy. What’s the use of washing your favorite and perfect-fitting cap if it’s going to lose it’s shape?
Have a wool or cotton cap like the ’47 CLEAN UP? You can also try Lids’ Cap Cleaner and Deodorizer to remove dirt, grime, sweat stains, and unwanted odors from your cap. Not all stains are avoidable though. Wear your hat too much while working/playing hard and you’ll start to see the effects.
Before your hat gets dirty, there are a few things you can do to help keep it looking fresh. Try Lids’ Water and Stain Repellent. If you wear your hat on the field or in the sun, it can help prevent the fading around the sweatband. Have any other care questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

This past weekend at the Fields of Fashion event, women of all ages gathered in the Wheels Up Clubhouse at Fenway. A social reception kicked off the afternoon with raffles, a loaded gift bag, and the opportunity to share some ‘fashionista’ perspectives. Even a few Red Sox Wives popped in for a surprise!
The room was glistening from reflections off the displayed World Series trophies. Pampering continued through the afternoon with OPI Nail Technicians and a private tour of Fenway. The Red Sox Team Store featuring ’47 Brand gear was a favorite stop along the way.
Help support the recovery of America’s wounded warriors with Operation Hat Trick. Dedicated to the memory of Navy Seals Nate Hardy and Mike Koch, OHT was born at the University of New Hampshire to help provide direct services to both active service members and veterans.
Georgia Tech has teamed up with OHT to offer customized GT hats in a variety of styles and colors, such as camo.
A portion of all merchandise proceeds go to those organizations that support OHT’s mission such as Walter Reed National Medical Military Center, the Mission Continues, and the Wounded Warrior Bonfire Project among many more.
Operation Hat Trick believes that addressing the visible and invisible wounds of war among service members and veterans is a responsibility we all have. Only an estimated 53 percent of service members who need treatment for stress disorders or traumatic brain injury seek help.

’47 Brand became the official exclusive headwear provider of the Operation Hat Trick program in 2011. You can find OHT gear at over 220 schools and retailers, or online here. Learn more about the work of Operation Hat Trick in this video.
When Father Edward Sorin founded of the University of Notre Dame, he also founded the University Archives. He directed that the charters granted to the University “remain in the archives as the most precious monuments that could be in its possession.” Visiting the archives allows us to remember the University’s history and appreciate the legacy it’s created.
At the University of Michigan, The University Archives are housed at the Bentley Historical Library on the North Campus. They even have some exhibits, like the history of students competing in the Olympics, available online.

Last week, we had the opportunity to sit down with ’47 Brand co-founder Arthur D’Angelo. He shared his thoughts on sports these days, starting a business, and working with family.
What’s something you wish you knew when starting this company?
To be honest, there’s nothing I wish I knew when starting this company. For Henry and me, everything was an open road and didn’t know where life would take us. We truly gambled with everything, but I am very happy with how things turned out. My advice for young entrepreneurs is to keep working, keep working, keep working.
Do you have a favorite sports memory?
Every sports event is a memory. I wish I could name one, but there’s been so many I’ve loved being a part of.
What about a favorite player?
You know, back in the day I was quite friendly with the players. I used to chew the fat with Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski. Today, the ball players keep to themselves, so it’s a bit different.
What is it like working with your family?
It’s the greatest thing that could ever happen to any family.
For this Throwback Thursday, we dug up a few Stanley Cup favorites from our archives.
The first Stanley Cup Champions were members of the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association: The Montreal Hockey Club, back in 1893.
Below, the 1912 Quebec Bulldogs won the Stanley Cup that season and are pictured with their mascot. On the right is a 1914 Montreal Wanderers team photo. They didn’t win the cup that year but were a top squad in the early 1900′s and would go on to win the cup in 1906, ’07, ’08, & 1910.← Older posts
