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, Maren Ludwig AKA @JAYLAW22 .
Maren’s love of hats began from her love of sports, especially Royals baseball and KU basketball. Her collection initially sprang from wanting to rep her hometown and teams. It has grown exponentially from there.
More about MarenMaren loves picking up hats with cool logos or great history. This motivation has, of course, led to quite the MiLB collection. She is especially proud of her collection of KC Monarchs hats and her Coca-Cola x New Era set of 5950s. As someone who runs a soda shop, the Coca-Cola collection was a must! One of the great things about wearing unique hats is it’s a great conversation starter. Check out her instagram @jaylaw22 for more pics.
