ROLLUROWN Candy Bar Corduroy Hat "Mac + Cheese Box"
TLDR: Unstructured Corduroy Hat, clamp label logo, embroidery everywhere else.
When I thought of this design, my first negative thought about it was “Well ‘Roll your own’ could come off as selfish and I don’t like that.” And then I was like, “nope, it’s COVID time and rolling your own is the safest way you can smoke.” From there the imagery came together and I ultimately was able to replace the candy bar box with a pack of rolling papers and I’ve been working on this on and off for the past few months and I’m just proud of it okay let me brag for a minute jeez. As usual, there are a few little easter eggs in there; nothing too hard to find but some fun things nonetheless.
About me and why this design exists: I smoke weed. I have for a very long time, and I might just continue for the rest of my life. Or not. Who knows, ya know? And while it has led to some negatives over those 20ish years, it mostly has been a blessing, in the especially over the past few years. I’m not ashamed of it, and I think this design is cool. Feel free to reach out if you disagree, I’m happy to explain further if you want!
Weed should be legal. I mean, obviously. If you have no issue with alcohol being legal but are against the legalization of cannabis, I would love to hear your logic because I think that’s an absurd opinion. I also think that if you’re reading this you probably agree, so I’m not gonna argue with hypothetical haters.
I struggled with excessive binge drinking/alcoholism for the majority of my life, and without weed I’d probably be dead or in jail. So, this is personal to me and again, I think it’s a cool design. The fact that there are 40,000 Americans (not surprisingly a disproportionate amount of which are people of color) in prison for non-violent cannabis-related crimes while Goop is doing Netflix shows about how great weed is for your wellness is bullshit.
So let’s get rid of the stigma that still exists in many places, and help out some causes that can free the aforementioned innocent people that are in prison.
Remember: They go low, we get high. (And just to be clear on this, I do not think the solution to problems or disagreements is to just smoke weed. But it’s a play on words and let’s not take everything too seriously.)
As always, appreciate you and your time, please reach out with any questions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org, and have a lovely day/night/week/month etc.

I ordered this hat as a birthday present for my little brother and I'm so excited to give it to him! It is made of a nice corduroy material that's just the right thickness. It's flexible, but not flimsy, which is precisely what I was looking for. The logo is unique and clever and I loved the option to donate a portion of my purchase to a charity of my choice! Thank you Matt!
