these hats with flaps were called JOBBERS

Oh, man. I had a red painters cap (no flaps) with the cursive Coca-Cola logo on both sides - and there was never a more comfortable hat in the world. I'd pay $40 for one or three of those today! Can't find anything but the crappy tyvek disposables. Oh, well. Anyone knows: dallasvista at gmail com

I also called the ones with the two flaps Legionaire's hats, cuz I guess they were like the hats the French Legion would wear. To me, painters caps were just the cheap white hats with an elastic band around the bottom that I would flip the lid up on and write something like "Mosh" or "Not" or "Skate" on.

I've been looking for a Harley Davidson painters hat. They don't make it anymore apparently. It's gray and has a black top and black bill. It says Harley Davidson on each side and has the logo on the front. Any help I'd appreciate it!

I used to have the ones that said jobbers on them. But Im thinking that was only a west coast brand.

Hey guys. I found this site and forum while searching for Jobbers hats and I found them at the original source. About 20-25 cases of them! I found a pic from an eBay Australia sale and on the hat was a company name. Surf Line Hawaii originated the Jobbers hat, so I contacted them through their site at . They emailed me and told me to call 808.847.5985 to order them. They said they have about 20-25 cases of these and that there are 4 different colors. I ordered one of each, $9 apiece. I told them that even though they are way out of style, they should be selling these online. Long live the mullet cap!
