Here at Imperial, we recently unveiled our groundbreaking 2024 collection, featuring an array of new headwear, apparel and accessories that we’re sure will revolutionize the industry. The standout among this remarkable lineup is the experimental Lab Series collection, a range of cutting-edge hats that offer unparalleled style, comfort and functionality. 

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, these caps are designed to provide a hat experience like no other, appealing to golfers and non-golfers alike.

A Deep Dive Into the Lab Series

Imperial’s continued innovation in the world of apparel and golf accessories signifies a new chapter in its journey of transformation and discovery. The Lab Series, an experimental collection introduced as part of the 2024 lineup, embodies our commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining industry standards. 

The Lab Series is set to revolutionize the hat-wearing experience, catering to sports enthusiasts, passionate players and beyond. These golf hats for women and men integrate cutting-edge features, including the world’s first performance Merino Wool sweatband. 

This innovative element is naturally antimicrobial, moisture-wicking and thermoregulating, ensuring a consistently comfortable and smell-free experience. With a focus on sustainability and purpose-driven design, the Lab Series offers a range of unique trims, high-quality fabrics and advanced features that’ll make it a challenge to ever wear another hat again.

What is Merino Wool?

Merino wool is a natural fiber sourced from Merino sheep, prized for its exceptional softness, breathability and moisture-wicking properties. This fine and lightweight wool is renowned for its ability to regulate body temperature, making it an ideal choice for performance-driven apparel such asmen’s and women’s golf hats.

One of merino wool’s key qualities is its inherent anti-microbial nature. This means that it naturally resists the growth of bacteria and odor, keeping the fabric and, in this case, the sweatband, fresh and hygienic even during prolonged use. As a result, golfers can enjoy long-lasting comfort without the need for frequent washing or concerns about unpleasant odors.

In addition to its anti-microbial properties, merino wool excels in moisture-wicking, making it an excellent choice for active pursuits such as golf. The wool fibers can absorb moisture vapor and then actively move it away from the skin, allowing for efficient evaporation and ensuring that the wearer stays dry and comfortable.

For next-generation golf hats for men and women, the inclusion of a performance merino wool sweatband offers golfers the perfect combination of comfort, functionality and sustainability. By harnessing the natural properties of merino wool, Imperial’s new hat collection provides golf enthusiasts with a high-performance and eco-friendly option to elevate their game.

The utilization of merino wool in the sweatband not only enhances the overall wearing experience by keeping the head dry and fresh but also aligns with the growing demand for sustainable and natural materials in sportswear.

Imperial’s innovative approach in integrating merino wool into their hat collection highlights their commitment to delivering premium quality, functional and environmentally conscious products for the modern golfer.
