The Japanese brand Buzz Rickson's are today counted among the few high-end reproduction manufacturers of military and casual garments in the world! They strive to make true replicas by carefully researching and analyzing original vintage garments, taking great care to duplicate the material while paying close attention to technique and quality with the goal to bring back old forgotten techniques and machines needed to make garments of outstanding quality without compromises.
This A3Mechanic's Cap by Buzz Rickson is reproduced to meet the standards of the caps worn by the US-Army in the early years of WWII. The 10 oz denim fabric is light and soft and will age in a most beautiful way when worn and faded by the sun.
One of the best details with this cap is that the screen is not hard, which means you can fold it and put it in your pocket or bag without having to worry about it taking damage! This also means that you can wash it as much as you like and you might already know that it can be a necessity if you wear it during the hot and sweaty days of the summer.
See the last picture for a comparison, our friend Björn has worn his cap for five years now and it i has aged in a personal and beautiful way that only can be achieved with time and lots of wear!
Comes in two sizes, 7 1/4" and 7 1/2". The 7 1/4" will fit 56-58 cm heads and the 7 1/2" 59-61cm.
