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.
A non-specific spin on vintage athletic club hats, the Victory Cap reps Victory over any actual team or region. A traditional 6 panel cap, it's got all the usual trims, an average length soft visor (that can be bent to the degree of your preference) sewn vent holes ring the crown, and a hand-cut wool felt V adorns the very front.
The Victory cap is sewn up in a heather brown, 100% wool tweed that's soft, warm, and comfortable. A contrasting wool undervisor provides a bit of welcome contrast, and on the inside, a kangaroo leather hatband keeps the cap securely on your head.
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.
