1986 Retro Trucker Hat
Who suggested this product?
The 1986 Retro Trucker Hat was recommended by Justin Farrell from Cowts.

Where your favorite hat is now every hat. While you can buy a hat just about anywhere, you are only ever buying just one hat. With our signature patches, every Hank Darby hat you own can be as many different hats as your collection of patches allows.

Our low profile trucker hats fit more true and give you the flexibility for breath during the summer months. That’s where the story began: 1986. Hank made his first mark on the world in 1986. Kicking and screaming, this isn’t a tale from a galaxy far, far away. It’s one that has its roots in something more than fiction.
