Having an 80's themed 40th birthday party in November, and I would like to find one of those white "painter" caps that were popular back then. (I had one back in the day...but it is long gone).
PREFERABLY...I would like to find one of the ones that had those tails on the back, like a French Foreign Legion cap.

I'm sure at least SOME of you remember the caps I am talking about.
Anybody know where I can find one?

A paint store that deals to the trade.

Maybe.

I don't think they actually use the type of cap I am talking about anymore... Haven't seen one in a very long time.
The used to come with sports team logos, rock band logos, stupid 80's sayings, and funky 80's color schemes.

The ones with the "Foreign Legion" tails were popular here in Florida, with the surfers, and beach crowd.

I won't be an ass and use that "Let me Google that for you!" link.


I did Google it... Didn't find the tails I refered to, though.

LOL I sold a lot of those back in the day, looked around and couldn't find a sample though.

Not exactly it but might work:

Vitronic is a large cap supplier I use, they might have a sample: 800-666-7117 (it's not in their catalog)

I'm not looking for a Legion hat... The painters caps I am talking about had tails in the back, like a Legion hat has.
