The Mechanics cap is a 1940s style flight cap, ubiquitous in the era among Pilots & Air Crews. It's sewn with a short (period-correct) brim, which looks equally good folded up or left alone. The soft crown is a classic 6-panel style, and the whole thing collapses easily for storage in a pocket, making it a wonderful daily companion.

It's sewn up in a 100% cotton moleskin with a slight luster to it (hence the name "silky black"). It's got a nice soft hand and protects against the wind nicely. To get the fit just right, there's an internal drawstring contained within the inner band of the hat, giving you total control.

Fits true to size. Wash warm, hang dry.
