Regular price $265
In stock - Ready to ship

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.

Made from an undyed natural veg tan front quarter horsehide from Japan's Shinki Tannery - the A-26 is a handsome hat rendered in some of the best materials available and with Papa Nui's usual impeccable construction. If you've got a pair of natural horsehide boots, now you can match your headwear to them perfectly for head-to-toe excellence. On the inside the breathable 100% cotton olive drab HBT sweatband (milled in Japan) keeps you comfortable.

Being an undyed leather, this hat will patina dramatically over time, darkening from exposure to ultraviolet light and ambient humidity. 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).
