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.
Papa Nui's A-3 Special Edition cap is a phenomenal piece of headwear. Inspired by an extremely rare "missing link" edition of the iconic A-3 cap, reproduced down to the most minute detail, the 1940s issue A-3 cap was an early attempt at a one-size-fits-all, with its drawstring headband.
Made from a 100% cotton HBT (herringbone twill), if features a thick cotton drawstring at the front and a classic short brim. Custom labels and an embroidered Hino Maru patch can be found inside, the marks of a genuine Papa Nui Hat.
Available in Medium (57-58cm) & Large (59-60cm). Wash cold, towel dry for no shrinkage. Wash hot, dry hot for shrinkage. Maximum stretch/shrinkage is approximately 1-1.5cm.
