    Anybody still wear a Jones Cap or Jones Hat?

    When I was a lil feller, everybody who hunted had at least one 'Jones Cap'. Sorta like a bucket cap with the back flipped up. The brim was just long enough to keep the sun out of the eyes. Most of em had a flip down piece that could cover the ears and back of the neck too on those really cold days.

    Many were camo or tan/brown. A few later on were blaze orange. I'm sure some of my Northern cousins may have had some white ones, but never saw a white one here owing to the rarity of snow.

    My favorites were the ones in what I call WWII camo, both green and marsh color versions. The tan canvas ones were cool too, though I never could warm up to the Blaze orange ones for some reason.

    Drake's Old School line is making them. Cabela's still has them, and L.L. Bean still makes them in solid, sturdy tan canvas. They tend to run around $25 depending on which version you go with.

    Anybody out there still wear a Jones Cap?

    My Dad always worn one. As a matter of fact, I still have one of his around here somewhere along with some of his old camouflage pants. Maybe, I'll try to dig them up later on.

    Thanks for the memory.

    Does a Kromer count?

    Kromer counts as first runner up!

    I'll have to see if I can get a pic of mine. It's marsh camo tan/brown from Cabela's about 15 years ago.

    I actually had noticed just that. Plaid flannel shirts, Jones caps, and Marlins with leather slings. That really sounds like a winning combination to me! Only thing missing is a good, beat up coffee thermos and a Old Timer Sharp Finger knife
