Saw someone wearing it at the game the other day:

Black, adjustable cap with the Flying Sock logo. I was fairly sure the wings on the sock were red, but the only thing I could find was a hat on Grandstand's website. It looks completely different from the hat I saw.

Here is a picture of the "wrong" hat. The one I'm looking for is a different version of the Flying Sock logo. It was much more stylized and angled.

I bought a similar hat at Grandstand - they have two versions - the adjustable version which I bought is more of a vintage look softer cap and then they have a fitted hat which is more the "high hat", wider bill firmer look - I think it was about $26. I dont know if that helps, I generally prefer fitted caps but I like the older vinage look better (but I am in my late 40's).

I have seen another winged sock logo hat last year that was a little different from these that I really liked- the next time I see someone wearing one I am just going to go ask him where he bought it.

I love that retro logo.

I loved the twins enterprise version of this hat and wore the hell out of it....

Now its pretty faded, but I will still bust it out from time to time...

Here is a link to the new era fitted version, but it's sold out. Oddly enough they have the hat in a Seattle Seahawks looking blue/green combo.

Those are pretty sweet, I got the fitted one with the more angle shape at Grandstand.

They also have the 50's s-o-x logo on the side. Not sure if the adjustable one has that.
