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 denim Daisy Mae was worn by the US-Army as a field hat in the 30s and was part of the all denim outfit issued in that time. The 10oz denim fabric is light and soft and will age in a most beautiful way when worn and faded by the sun.
It comes intwo 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.
The last three pictures shows a well worn Buzz Rickson's Denim Daisy Mae Hat. It's been used for more than six years and washed and mended a few times.
