Unique Waxed Cotton Snapback/Baseball/Trucker Cap With Kimono Silk Peak.
Handmade six panel snapback/baseball cap. Made from superb chestnut brown and red waxed cotton this traditional waterproof fabric is extremely practical and looks better the more it is worn developing a lovely unique vintage look.
'Waxed cotton is, as the name suggests, cotton impregnated with a paraffin based wax, woven into a cloth. Widely used from the mid-19th century to the mid-1950s, the product,which originated in the sailing industry in England and Scotland, became widely used by many for waterproofing.' (Wikipedia)
The peak features a stunning vintage Kimono silk panel and multilayed leather and canvas insert for a great shape. (I feel this gives a much more compliant fit than the standard plastic inserts.)
And at the back theres is a brown Horween leather strap and brass ratchet to keep it snug, and the cotton lining has all the relevant labels.
