Born from a mix of vintage sensibilities, practical need & the sort of madness it takes to want to produce anything the right way - Papa Nui makes some damn fine hats. Manufactured in Japan with the highest attention to detail and quality, with personality and a deliberate story behind each piece.

Utilizing vegetable-tanned, front quarter horsehide from Shinki tannery in Japan, the A-26 is a handsome hat rendered in some of the best materials available and with Papa Nui's usual impeccable construction. The olive green leather and tonal stitching will compliment your favorite flight jacket & the pliable visor can easily be turned up for a more casual look. On the inside the breathable, 100% cotton, Japanese milled olive HBT sweatband keeps you comfortable.

Being a tea-core leather, this hat will age and wear to a lighter tan in some areas over time, cranking the vintage look up several magnitudes. As a result of its superior materials and construction, this is a highly dynamic garment that will change over years and years of wear. To keep the A-26 hat at its best, a custom printed HBT hat bag is included, so you can safely store your hat when not in use.

Available in Medium (57-58cm) & Large (59-60cm).
