Make America Macarena Again (MAMA) Hat April 01 2016

Lately at Sheepshead we've felt the political tensions in America rising to an all time high. Never before have Americans been so divided. In the midst of toxic news coverage and social media battlegrounds, we felt compelled to create a Hat that would bring the country together again. Looking to the past for inspiration we found a certain song and dance phenomenon that once united us. The year was 1995, Toy Story and Waterworld were rocking the box office, Bill Clinton was in the White House, and the Macarena took America by storm.  

Introducing the Sheepshead MAMA Hat. It's political message is simple, "Make America Macarena Again" (MAMA). Whether you support Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, or you're feeling the Bern, we want to encourage you to stop and share the Macarena with a fellow American. Go ahead and play the video below to feel the political tensions ease.

We are Sheepshead and we approve this April Fools message.

Water-Resistant Umbra Hats September 12 2014

We understand that some of us love our favorite hat as much as we love water

Unfortunately these two passions usually don't mix. Most hats are never the same after their first contact with water. They stain, shrink, and begin to deteriorate at an accelerated rate. The Umbra Get-Wet Hat was engineered with water in mind. While we don't recommend going scuba diving with it, the Umbra Get-Wet is made of water-resistant materials. The majority of the hat is nylon so it drys quickly and maintains its shape. Like all of our hats, Umbra comes equipped with a glare-reducing visor made of a water-repelling microfiber (wool doesn't hold up well in water). Custom rubber patches were designed so your hat's logo never fades, and the adjustable strap is made of nylon to prevent any shrinkage. On first glance the Umbra appears to be all party. However its been carefully designed to be water-resistant and last multiple trips to Crab Island.

Meaning of the Pipe Fish Hat September 03 2014

Fish Pipe Hat Smoking Bubbles

Bubbles, stripes, fish, and pipe?

We get a lot of questions about the Sheepshead pipe fish on Your Favorite Hat. Some think it's a reference to hippie culture, while others believe it was inspired by a cartoon. Our mouths are shut about our logos true origins, but we'll give you a hint on the pipe fish meaning.

Your Favorite Hat

At Sheepshead we want to deliver Your Favorite Hat. Wether its the Maxwell, Domeshtic, or Umbra, our hats are built with a purpose and designed to last a lifetime. We hope that each hat carries a little piece of the Sheepshead Lifestyle along with it. Our lifestyle is about relishing in the simple pleasures of life. Its about putting off an assignment to enjoy patio time with friends, skipping work to go fishing, or starting the day off with a shower beer. Put simply, the Sheepshead Lifestyle is "livin' easy." When you choose Sheepshead we hope that you'll take time to enjoy the simple pleasures. Just like the simple pleasure you get from wearing your favorite hat.

Pipe Fish Logo

So whats with the fish smoking a pipe with bubbles? We like to think fish pipe hat represents the Sheepshead Lifestyle. The logo has a chill vibe, while still holding a sense of humor. The pipe fish represents enjoyment of the simple pleasures and not taking things too serious. Still wondering whats in the Fish's pipe? They're bubbles... obviously.
