"We sold out of the Ram Caps within 6 months", says owner Jim Mickelson.
Ram Headwear was our flagship brand back in the 1980s and was very successful in the Pacific Northwest. The Ram style cap was one of the most sought-after caps for the construction and service industries. The Ram name disappeared in the 1990s due to the ease of purchasing caps locally from cap suppliers like Richardson and Port Authority. However, Ram Headwear did make a short reappearance in 2003 when we imported 10,000 caps with the Ram label.
In what capacity are the Ram caps coming back?
New Ram Style 112 inspired by Richardson Caps
Our inspiration for our new style #R112 is from legendary Richardson Headwear, who is the premier cap supplier since 1976. The new R112 is similar to the Richardson 112, but with some new bells and whistles. such as a softer plastic snapback. The R112 plastic was developed by Israeli scientists that helped develop the Kornit ink system. Using the organic plastic composition used for the ink, we were able to use that technology to create an organic snapback.
