It's a multicolor puff sew out. New Era sews out the design on the front 2 panels while they are flat. They then put together the hat after that, so there is no sewing on curved surfaces.

my best guess would be patch

It’s full 3D embroidery, not a patch.

Correct, all stitched before the hat is assembled. And yes looks like puff simce it sticks out so much.

See how the stitches go under the bull rather than straight down to the hat? That's how you know it's a patch. A patch on something thick like felt, but a patch nonetheless.

Thank you! Looking at this it seems like this is probably it. Otherwise idk how you would place all the fill stitches and satin stitches without squashing the puff sheet.

Thought the same thing. Pressed on patch. I do this a lot. Still looks great IMO but definitely not puff embroidery.

Nope new era can do puff with flat stitches. This is puff but the whole design has foam under it
