Looking for a uniform hat like this one for display in my ambulance.

I've kept an eye on eBay but nothing so far.

As you can see, it's a white top with a black weave. I can source a badge hopefully and the silver band.

Let me know if you have one for sale or trade...and what you'd be looking for in return.

Thanks!

They look very similar to the ones of the marine officer dress... Did you checked with the army surplus and a vintage emt badge?

Hi Martin...I did check with many military surplus stores.

This hat is different with the weave (instead of solid or mesh) and the hat it not as tall as the military model.

I hope to get a similar one, and a vintage-style badge from Hookfast.
Isn't this pretty close? http://www.keystoneuniformcap.com/ Or if not maybe they can make one.

Their 8pt open cane looks close... maybe they have it in round top as well.... our dress uniforms use the white topped cap as well but its more of a mesh with a cloth cover than the open cane type.
bayley does custom caps and has the open weave type http://www.baylyhats.com/custom.php
I think we order ours from Scully's http://williamscully.ca/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=22684

This looks like the "dress" hat that our local fire department wears at funerals. Maybe a uniform company can help you out
