Story time! We’ve been waiting for Silicon Valley Comic Con for so long. Well, more accurately, our lead designer, Ruby Roxanne has been waiting for Silicon Valley Comic Con for so long. Months ago she bought tickets for a meet n’ greet with one of her favorite actors, Jason Momoa. Jason’s bohemian fashion vibes and love for hats has always inspired Ruby, and she wanted to make him a gift to show her appreciation. Ruby set out designing a hat specifically made for Jason, and before it was even done, everyone around the office loved it so much we decided to release it in our 2020 catalog. We’ll get to those details here shortly. Anyways, back to the real story…

Arguably the most important part of a hat is the fit. You can have the coolest hat ever, but if it doesn’t fit then everything is out the window. Designing a hat specially for someone is a daunting task in and of itself, but designing a hat for someone without knowing their head size is a definite risk. Ruby’s husband, Jim, regularly models our hats. Ladies, ladies, I know, he’s married. I’m sorry! Ruby was talking about designing the hat with Jim, and was expressing her concerns about the size, when they decided to brainstorm a bit. Jim wears a 2XL hat, and Jason is about 3 inches taller than Jim, and has a long head of hair. They settled that the best idea was to make the hat in 3XL and cross their fingers because after all, our hats are customizable with the adjustable sized sweatbands.

Fast forward to the big day, and Ruby overlooked the set time that her group was supposed to be in line to meet Jason. She had just got back from a two week vacation and was still 
jet lagged.

By the time she noticed the set time, she only had 15 minutes to drive an hour and a half to the Silicon Valley Comic Con to get in line and meet Jason! Peeling out of her driveway at speeds that would make Dale Earnhardt’s palms sweat, she slowed down the car just long enough to pick up Leslie and off they went!
