If you missed last week’s #TBT Instagram post by Taylormade on July 30th, then you also missed out on the best logo comeback in golf apparel.
The old school design on the new Taylormade Throwback Flatbill cap is an actual replica logo taken from Taylormade’s 1979 Pittsburgh Persimmon wood, a.k.a. “The Original One”. The cap sports a skater style flat brim and snap back with truly historical throwback lettering. The #TBT cap has a perfect blend of contemporary street smart and retro appeal that will have passersby stopping to ask where they can get their own.
Back in 1979, Gary Adams borrowed $24,000 on his house, leased a building in McHenry, Illinois, and took a gamble on replacing persimmon material with steel to create what we now take for granted as the metal wood. Tyalormade’s #TBT caps display the logo stamped on Gary Adams’s original 1979 Pittsburgh Persimmon metal woods.
What more fun way for Taylormade to release the Throwback Flatbill cap for public sale than on a Throw-Back Thursday via Instagram, with a #TBT hashtag! The caps are currently being sold by New Era Cap Co and Taylormade Golf online. The same 1979 logo can also be found in a regular bill golf cap with adjustable strap at Taylormadegolf.com. Get yours while you can.
