Hi all! Diehard Gilligan's Island/Alan Hale Jr. (Skipper Jonas Grumby) fan since age 3 1990. Been on a mission of trying to find the black yacht cap made by Lancaster that he wears in the show 3 seasons 98 episodes 1964-1967 with the hand embroidered gold bullion wire crossed anchors life ring ropes emblem. No luck. I did find one but it isn't Lancaster and has a machine made sewn on patch. Midway Cap Co. Brand from the 1st TV Reunion Movie Rescue From Gilligan's Island(1978) is what I've found during my search for a black one. Ordered it on 4/1/14. Arrived 4/28/14. I only learned the original series '64-'67 brand was Lancaster Uniform Cap Co. Brand in 2010. Well said co. went out of business 1 year later in Jan 2011 after 82 years 1929-2011. But the hats were to expensive at $275 each. Then it was $324 each then it was $375 each finally $359 each before they went out of business. The last ones I learned were sold at Frank's Fisherman Supply near Pier 39 in San Francisco. I can't find a hand embroidered gold bullion wire black yacht cap for an affordable price. Would any of y'all have any suggestions as to where I can look?
