Funny -- I was just about to post that site, and ask if that stuff can possibly be officially licensed. I think not. Any opinions?

I'm of mixed mind. I like it, but if it's not licensed, it's not as appealling.

Don't know if you guys knew about this, but it is very much worth considering and I'm very happy about it.

Lotus (well, actually Proton) sponsors Norwich City soccer club. So on the 'away' shirts it says Lotus. I've had last years shirt and yesterday I ordered the new one. They are customizable like most soccer shirts with a name and a number on the back. Very handy at club meetings ;) If the quality of this years shirt is as good as last years (and I see no reason why not) I would go as far as calling it excellent :up: Well worth the money :)

Evl, on that cap, is the front portion of the cap (not the bill, the actual cap portion) "structured" - in other words, is that front panel stiff and kind of "high" like it has a foam backing ? It doesn't look like it, but I want to make sure 'cuz I much prefer the caps that don't have that. TIA.

I'll check tonight... I know it doesn't have foam or anything, but I don't know if there is any other stiffener (aside from the embroidery backing) in the front. I do remember it had some cardboard tucked into the front to keep it from getting squashed in shipping, which Annette Lancaster advised me to remove. :)

OK, just checked. The front panel is a little stiff, its got some kind of plastic stuff fuesed to the back of it. I don't think it makes it stick up too much tho. Its not so high as the trucker ones with the plastic piece, but not so low as those khaki ones you see. Hope this helps some, I'm not a very big hat connoisseur...
