All-City Cycling Caps are on the way

Italy--> Minneapolis-->Your Head

We've commissioned Nalini to produce two All-City cycling caps for us.  Nalini is one of the premier makers of cycling apparel in the world and I have long been a big fan of their cycling caps.  They are produced in Italy and imported by All-City.  Ask anyone. If something is made in Italy it must be good.  Campy, De Rosa, Colnago, and now these lovelies.

The AC shield hat is blue with grey sidepanels and contrasting inks and features the All-City shield logo on the sides and "All-City" on the top and bottom of the brim


The Nice Hat features neon green ink and accents on black. 

In case you're wondering about the "nice." thing, there are two reasons for it:

1. I just think it's fun to be able to flip up your cap and have it say something silly, I'm already looking forward to the moment when half-in-the-bag I'm able to flip up the brim as the exclamation to whatever garbage I happen to be spewing out.  Believe me at some point in your life it's gonna come in handy.

2. It's a play on the midwestern expression "Minnesota Nice".  I spoke with several of my colleauges and we couldn't come up with a very articulate explanation for the phrase, so I'll leave it up to Wikipedia: Minnesota Nice. 

Expect these towards the end of June.  I'll let you know when they arrive.

P.S. when the time comes the part numbers are: CL1916 for the Shield and CL1918 for the Cityscape
