January 5th-Fighting Illini hat

I wore a University of Illinois Fighting Illini hat to work today.  This is also one of my favorite hats and it is also the second exact same one I have purchased.  I bought the first one when I was a student at Illinios in 2003.  After a few years of heavy usage, it was threadbare and no longer wearable.  I got this one about 5 years ago.  It was made by Twins Enterprises, but they are now know as ’47.  They rebranded a few years ago.  This style is their very popular “Franchise” model.  It is fitted (Medium) and made of 100% cotton.  I received my Master’s Degree from Illinois in 2004 and I like to represent them in south Louisiana. It features the retired Chief Illiniwek on the back, and even the “I” on the front has since been redesigned by the University.  A similar hat is no longer available.
