New to Eleven Warriors Dry Goods: Hats

By Jason Priestas on June 3, 2014 at 6:24p

UPDATE: We're sold out. Guess we'll have to order some more of these.

So, we had this great new Eleven Warriors seal – courtesy of the amazing Walt Keys – but nothing outside of the site to really show it off.

The solution: hats (and whiskey tumblers—more on that later). 

Now we can be true company men and women, wearing the site colors while banging out 1,000 words on the number of ankles Braxton Miller will break across the Big Ten this year.

And we have some extras. Although supplies are extremely limited at this time, if you act quickly, you can secure your own high-quality Eleven Warriors snapback hat in scarlet (acrylic wool), gray (cotton twill) or steel gray (trucker mesh).

If these don't excite you, no worries – my dad will gladly take the leftovers – but if there is interest, I'll look into whether it makes sense to order more.

My dad had a marijuana leaf tattooed on his arm and he always told us kids that it was a buckeye leaf.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

I always found it difficult to believe my parents doing the same stupid shit I did in my early 20s and even teens.  Now the stories they tell me make me wonder why I ever listened to them growing up.

I'd love a hat, only something looks off with the color scheme.  Shouldn't the hat be gray?

Go Bucks!

It's gray. My camera/lighting skills are just garbage.


For future reference, and if you have time, it's an easy fix - just have to white balance to the wall color and it should correct itself.

I would totally buy one if you embroidered "CHIEF B1G DUMP" on the side.

you could actually have that

That would seem more appropriate on some custom 11W underwear.

Bucknuts and Chief B1G dump on underpants? That'd be mullet underwear..."Business in the front, party in the back".

As long as none of the proceeds end up in Mean Gene's pocket for using the Buckeye leaf.

As far as the university is concerned, that's not their Buckeye leaf. The official one is here.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

That is a fascinating link. And amusing--

Any chance you could make these on a "flex fit" style hat?  I'm not a huge fan of snapback-style hats.  Obviously beggars can't be choosers, but beggars can ask at least.

Also, I would definitely buy the whiskey tumbler.  Those look really cool.

Yeah, we can look into it.

I think there needs to be an 11w Top Hat (with monocle and an option for moustache) and an 11w Bowler Hat.

Wait just one cotton-pickin' minute! The Ohio State University owns the exclusive rights to anything resembling a buckeye (animated or otherwise), buckeye tree, or buckeye leaf. This includes horse chestnuts and roundish chocolate/peanut butter candies. You guys should really know better by now. The brand police will be calling on you presently.

Id like to order 10,000 cotton pickin' minutes! Can you arrange that or supply me the link?

Go Bucks!

Seeing as the official 11W charity tailgate, which borrows it's name from Shakespeare, was recently struck down by the OSU brand police, then nothing is safe.  In fact, we probably can't even serve the candied occulus of an adult male deer without being sued into oblivion.

Just ordered mine - can't wait to get the tumblers!

Agreed! Great Scotch glasses.

Go Bucks!

And while we're at it, can we have some pint glasses, tulip glasses, snifters, pilsner glasses, and steins?  Actually, I'll just have the whole bar.

Sad I missed out, but would totally buy one if you made more. 

Oh yeah... Is it reasonable?

LOL. What, did you guys only order like 10 of each? (I like the trucker hat.)

I would definitely order some tumblers. Need to class up my heavy weekday drinking.

It is a beautiful hat.  Perhaps I will upgrade soon.

A few others have mentioned it, but I would definitely buy a flex fit style hat, and I wouldn't care if the price was a little higher.  And of course I'm buying those tumblers when they become available!  My best friend is a Michigan fan (I know, I know), but the next time he comes over to enjoy some of my Woodford Reserve he will be sipping out of an "Ohio" glass.

I would buy both the hat and a whiskey tumbler! Now all we need is a few t-shirts with the logo on it, especially in a women's v-neck cut, hint hint. :D

11W bourbon tumbler?  Yes, please...but I might hold out for the Groupon deal.

I want a red one with the flex fit. I will also get one for my brother, also a buckeye fan. although he might want a gray one.

these are awesome! Great idea.

A 2 color FlexFit Trucker Hat with the EW logo as seen on the top left of the EW home page scrolled across the back would be badass! Just throwing it out there.
