Get A GRIT Cap While You Can

Hank and GRIT CapI’ve been trying to get some GRIT hats ordered for as long as I’ve been here. All my nagging finally paid off – 140 of the most awesome ball caps I’ve ever seen arrived here just the other day. I argued that we needed the hats to hand to special folks we meet at shows and that we needed hats to wear when we were out in the world. I secretly wanted a hat stash because I am a hopeless cap collector – it started with seed companies and moved to machinery makers. I have Caterpillar caps, International Harvester caps, DeKalb, Pioneer and Producers caps. I even have Mother Earth News caps – but until now, I never had a GRIT cap

I love my GRIT cap so much that I do chores in it, go to town in it and even forget to take it off while I’m at work. I have even whittled down our original GRIT cap inventory sufficiently to supply the entire GRIT team – they declined my offer to take a group photo – my family and a few friends. So today there are many fewer than 140 GRIT caps in stock (and I am more dollars than I want to admit poorer even though they are only $12 apiece) because of my obsession with great fitting and good looking headwear. I even have a couple of caps stashed away – out of the light and in a crush-free zone – so that I will have a fresh GRIT cap to wear when our one-time inventory runs out.

The powers that be told me not to expect another batch of GRIT caps anytime soon, since we aren’t in the apparel business. I told them that members of the entire GRIT community would really dig GRIT-branded gear – they just smiled uncomfortably like I was some homeless guy explaining the beauty of alley cat culture to an invisible audience. I didn’t mention that I was hoping for a full line of work wear with the GRIT barn and tractor logo prominently displayed.



So, if you want to get one (or ten) of these great looking and great fitting GRIT caps, you need to act quickly. If I am right that you all like this stuff as much as I do, the caps won’t last – and when they are gone, I suspect they’ll really be gone.

Hank, didn't your mama ever teach you to take your hat off indoors? :) My dad was a ball cap collector, too. They are still displayed in my mom's house.
