Billy Costigan/Leonardo DiCaprio's Red Sox cap in 'The Departed'
I liked 'The Departed', although that was always going to be a possibility, considering the cast, the story, the location and even the soundtrack. Just a class act of a movie. The movie has many Boston references, and several Red Sox references of note throughout. None are more obvious than the stylish black Red Sox cap Leonardo DiCaprio's character, Billy Costigan, wears almost completely through out the movie.
Well, believe it or not, I get more mails and comments about that damn hat than anything else! So I thought I would put it to bed for good and suggest where people might get it. I remember seeing it at the Red Sox shop beside Fenway years ago, so I checked online. No sign of it anymore on the Redsox.com.
After a little digging I managed to find it, at Lids online store. So, if you want the same Red Sox hat as Billy Costigan in 'The Departed', well, now you know where to go!
