And you thought you had a lot of hats…
For the past two months we’ve been scouring the Internet looking for the next Ultimate Hat Collection. After analyzing all of the epic entries (seriously, check out #UltimateHatCollection on Instagram), we’ve chosen eight finalists to battle it out for the title of LIDS Ultimate Hat Collector – 2018! In this blog we are highlighting one of our UHC competitors, Josh Duesterhaus AKA @Dues12.
“I’ve always felt more comfortable with a cap on, and as a kid I had all kinds of different caps. My collection didn’t really become focused until I went to my first pro sports game, when I saw the Cardinals at the Dodgers.”
More about Josh
I’ve always felt more comfortable with a cap on, and as a kid I had all kids of different caps. My collection didn’t really become focused until I went to my first pro sports game, when I saw the Cardinals at the Dodgers. I fell in love with Dodger Stadium and the team, and wanted to get the caps they wore. I always thought I was weird having this love for caps, collecting and hoarding them, but through social media I found many, many others just like me. And the culture and community has taken my passion for collecting to another level. I always want to have that cap on no one has seen, or you can’t just walk into a store today and buy. The cap community has helped with this, making all our little worlds global. The best thing is, although we all came together because of caps, we stay together because of the people, and I have been blessed to make many life-long friends.
