BOURBON, MO – Imperial Headwear, the leader in customized headwear for the golf market, debuts its Spring 2016 collection. 2016 marks the company’s 100th anniversary and Imperial celebrates this milestone with a special catalog and the most extensive and diverse headwear collection in the golf market.

“The new One 9 One 6 Collection, along with our new WeatherSTRONG Collection — highlighted by Coolcore chemical-free cooling technology, and our new Keep Warm Knits — have positioned us with our strongest product offering in the company’s 100-year history,” commented David Shaffer, director of marketing at

The LafayetteImperial.

Expert craftsmanship and superior materials have been a tradition at Imperial for 100 years. The Company pays close attention to every detail on every piece of headwear produced. Small but important features are not overlooked, and everything that goes into Imperial caps is put there with a definitive purpose of making a better product. The “One 9 One 6 Collection” celebrates the values upon which Imperial Headwear was founded in the year 1916; it’s classic headwear with a modern twist.
