    I get that the 6 panels come together right there. But seriously, it doesn't keep them from coming apart. They are sewn well enough that the top is likely the last place that will come aprt from wear.
    Its just for looks. And I think it looks dumb. (MHO)

    It is a vestigial remnant of an earlier time. Like your appendix, or tonsils, or your Camaro. The button served a purpose earlier, but now... mostly for show.

    Let us know if the hat stays together. I know you have to do physical stuff and crawl into tight spaces and the such. I do similar work, and if your hat stays together I will do the "PlumbahMod" to my hats as well.

    Well, truthfully, I have to take it off when I work. Besides the fact that I sweat like a nazi in Raider's of the Lost Ark...

    ...ironically, I tend to hit my head alot when walking around in basements because the bill blinds my view.:giggle:It does seem to be stiched pretty well though.

    Since you're already modding the hat, remove the bill...

    I would think shoving those spikes through that area would actually make the stitching more vulnerable than to help hold it together, but I'm not a hatter. Every cap I wore on baseball teams eventually had the top button fall apart from general abuse while the hat remained intact and completely fine. You don't realize how often you come in contact with the top of your hat until the rough edge of the dismantled button scrapes across your skin a half dozen times. And I share plenty in the original misery, that button easily got caught on various things.

    you could also get an operator hat. they usually come with a small velcro patch on top instead of the button.

    IIRC he's a fellow Yankee fan, and unfortunately they don't make operator caps.... yet! But I do this mod to all of my hats, and I have never had a stitch of trouble (see what I did there).

    I've never had a problem with the button. Maybe it's just all the hair giving me padding. Maybe it's just my thick skull

    I think baseball hats make everyone look like an overgrown duck.

    There I said it. They do not provide enough shade, either. :giggle:

Will try this 10/10!
