You won't catch me shopping for hats in thrift stores.

Nope, it's not because I have any phobias about cleanliness or wearing second-hand hats. It's just that my head is, well, larger than average. Think "news anchor head." So, when I see something labeled "one size fits all," I can't help but chuckle.

So when this vintage hat popped up in my Instagram feed, I thought to myself, "That looks like it might actually fit me!"

Ladies, gentlemen, and all fast-food-themed promotional clothing fans, I present to you...

The Big Mac Hat

I know—stunning. As you can see, it's taller than your average baseball cap, probably designed to hold all that fabulously wavy and tall '80s hair. The "Mac" hat is styled to resemble that iconic '80s lunch and dinner delight—the Big Mac. You could literally wear your burger and eat it too.

Don't go thinking you can roll up to the Micky D's drive-thru and order a birthday cake with a side of burger cap because this awesome item no longer exists.

Turns out the hats were for a 1984 promotion to promote the Big Mac, and while employees got them for free, you could have snagged one for yourself for the very '80s price of 99 cents (with the purchase of a Big Mac, large fries and a drink).
