    A customer wants a bunch of American made hats structured with mesh back, anyone know
    if there is a brand that is reasonable?
    If not, any American made hats that are not structured with mesh back?

    Richardson (R-112) is the most common request for us.

    Try; they will probably be able to provide the point of origin

    SanMar and SS are typically are go to here. I'm assuming since it's structured it's either going to be mid profile or low profile as that is the most common requested, but if they want high profile, I haven't checked to see if they have a high profile structured with mesh backings. Typically high profile tends to go foam with mess, not all the time, but that tends to be more the case then not, so may want to make sure if they are wanting high profile.

    I looked at all the hats I had in our show room, Richardson, Outdoor, Dri Duck, Port Authority, & even Carhartt were made in Bangladesh, China or Vietnam.

    S&S does have a few hats made in America, but they're 2-3 times more.
    Sanmar doesn't seem to list where their hats are from.

    Most are going to be. That's the trade off. Want more budget friendly, more then likely going to need to go outside the states.

    Don't be afraid to quote them! Make certain you put 'made in America' in about 30 places on the quote, so they don't forget why your quote is high. This should be more than expected on their end.
