    I've always bought the caps as "pipeliner" caps. Try this link and see if this is what you're looking for: http://www.dragosupply.com/drago/ser...log/group.jsp/
    Where I buy them locally, you can say how many you want, but the colors and patterns are "assorted".

    Default lee caps

    Hey kbar, I have never heard of the style your talking about but the one that I use is the comeaux style and it only cost about 7-8$$ at tractor supply locally and i'm lucky to have several welding supply store's around were I live,

    The one's i've gotten have lasted for ever like you said around 4-5yrs and they fit great.

    Hi guys,

    the actual "LEE" brand is actually a division of VF Corporation, makers of Vanity Fair ladies wear. I've been wearing their jeans for 30 years. They have factories and outlets here in Alabama.

    They have a web page but no listings for hats.. but they do have contact info that might get you a yes/no answer

    I think that I know exactly what he is talking about with the Lee caps.

    I always liked the Lee caps. I liked the blue/white engineer types. They also had them with a shorter bill for welders.

    I am however afraid that they quit making them in the late 1970s.

    I do recall sending a letter to the Lee Company asking about the caps during that time frame of 30 years ago. I think that I was having a hard time finding the Lee caps at that time and that was the reason for the letter.

    The Lee Company's reply was that they were no longer making the caps due to the lack of demand as best as I can remember.

    They were truly unhappy in having to do so. The caps had been in production for such a long time.
