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.
The so called Daisy Mae Hat was worn by the US-Army as a field hat during the first half of the 20th century. Through the years many different versions of the hat was used and this brown denim version was used in 1918. The hat is all made of cotton so it's easy to fold it to keep it in the pocket or the backpack without having to worry about damaging it.
The brim is 5,5 cm vide and it is strengthened with seams that helps it stay in place when worn. We would say that the Daisy Mae hat is most likely the best option to wear during summer because it protects both the face and neck from the heat of the sun.
It comes in two sizes, 7 1/4" and 7 1/2" which can be hot washed to shrink further, or cold soaked and stretched to fit. The 7 1/4" should fit 56-58cm heads and the 7 1/2" 59-61cm.
