  1. I appreciate your honesty! yeah this hat will sell well especially to high schoolers. Not too traditional for sure. The hat will sell in stores like just sports and hat club. . snapbacks are a generational thing. they are now 80% of my sales. a couple of years ago fitteds were 80% of our sales. as the snapback crowd moves on it will at some point switch to a different look. maybe fitteds maybe not. all i can do is make all the styles as cool as i can and hope to please as many people as possible.
  2. That hat is still banished. the minute i unveiled it some administrators/alumni changed their mind. hopefully we can get it approved for this next season. but i cant count on it. currently there are six of those on the planet 4 in my office and 2 in the Boise State offices. sorry.
  3. Hey everyone, i thought i would just post a new logo we are doing for a limited time only for Arizona State. As you may or may not know our company is smoking the snapbacks right now and this mark has Sparky the mascot in a snapback. ASU has never allowed anyone to mess with their old Sparky mascot before so this is pretty fun. The mark will be only available on hats until August. So this is really a limited edition logo. This mark is consistent with other Xline marks that we have made for various schools such as Notre Dame, Michigan, Penn state etc, some of which became actual official school logos. (Syracuse, portland state, SF Austin, etc) Hope you guys like it. Thanks, David Gormley Zephyr

  5. i actually made that logo on my computer about 10 years ago. its on some of our FSU hats.
  6. ok, ill join the hunt...
  7. yup, i did that stretched A and that hat on my computer. its sells so much better than the triangle A that they actually use. Bingo. The old Zephyr NHL Sniper and specific-sized DH and DHS hats are still best hats Zephyr made. Duly noted Sell whatever makes the most money for you...I selfishly wish the "classics" were still the trend! Favorite hat of all time was light blue Avs Sniper w/ a little bit of a stretched "A" logo on front, and the foot in the back (no oval around the foot), and regular brim.
  8. Still make the sniper style, and still do the dh and dhs hats. 85% of the hats sold in the usa are sold to kids aged 14 to 24. The curve generation is about 26 years old or over. If i stayed true exclusively to the 'classics' i would be delivering pizza every night just to feed my family. Bingo. The old Zephyr NHL Sniper and specific-sized DH and DHS hats are still best hats Zephyr made.
  9. Unfortunately no one knows we never 'jumped the shark'. We make the same curve bill comfortable fitted hats we always have..... and stock em. its just the demand is completely different now. check out hatmonster.com, click on curve shape and see how many hats you get. NO one else is pushing flat and curved like we are.
  10. There has been some late breaking red tape regarding the Boise State Xline and so unfortunately i am having to quit showing the image in public right now. sorry.
  11. unveiling boise state xline, working on some more and trying to stay ahead of the snapback game

  13. in NYC checking out hat stores that are smoking our snapbacks.

  14. oh yeah, they are reviewing one right now. i also proposed a whole set of marks when they switched some years back. ill share boise state stuff when i know more. they are rather overwhelmed right now with all the attention they are getting and having had enough time to meet regarding my proposal. i should hear back in januaryish.
  15. sorry i dont have any artwork that i can share at this time. i do think we will have success with them in the future. hopefully using the gruff concept. Any chance you can share anything from what you did for Michigan State? I love the old school Gruff Sparty logo and would buy something similar in a heartbeat.
