Outdoor Cap Adds Leather and More Options to Patch Program

PatchesCoverPic1-PressReleaseIn an effort to improve our capabilities and expand our domestic operations, Outdoor Cap re-vamped our 7-Day custom program to include domestically produced embroidered and sublimated fabric cap patches in October 2018.

Now in 2019, we’ve upgraded our patch offerings to include six new fabric patch shapes and eleven leather patch options.

Patch caps have become highly sought-after headwear and the addition of this program will fuel both our growth and our goal to lead the industry as The Headwear Experts,” says Jim Haworth, President and CEO of Outdoor Cap. “It is always important to try new things as we are looking for ways to satisfy our customer’s needs and gain market share!

Customers may choose from the following patch shapes in a variety of sizes: circle, oval, square, rectangle, diamond, hex, buckle, badge, and flag.

Embroidered fabric patch backgrounds come in 12 colors including two licensed camouflage patterns. All fabric patches are available in either a satin stitch edge or a merrowed edge. There are 12 thread colors to choose from for merrow edge patches

Merrow refers to a three-thread overlock stitch popularized by the Merrow Machine Company. This creates a quick, finished edge quickly while preventing fraying and unraveling on the edge of the patch.

Our patches are 100% genuine leather available in Chocolate or Tan colors. Each patch has an etched design and is hand stitched on the cap in-house at our Bentonville, Arkansas facility.

All patches are places on the front center location of the cap. Additional embroidery can be placed according to the Domestic Custom program details.
