My good friend John is correct. HOWEVER, not all hats are made from
colorfast material. My younger son (currently Trading Post Manager at Camp
Sequassen, Winsted CT), has one had which is now pink -- formerly maroon.
His favorite hat is white with formerly green lettering, now turning light
So, be forewarned. I prefer to let my hats age. Our official troop hat is
black with red lettering. I have one (field) which is turning grey on top
(like its wearer) and one which is almost pristine for dress occasions.
