Join us as we we take a closer look at the new range of Papa Nui's caps.
Army Denim Hat is Papa Nui's take on the M1937. Not a Daisy Mae shape at all, the M1937 was a unique piece that was part of the early Blue Denim work uniform during the 1930s and into the 1940s before being replaced by OD herringbone twill.
Gunnery Range Hat Hickory This hat is a hickory striped cover based on a Daisy Mae and a ‘what if’ USN piece of kit issued for Gunnery and Target practice at midshipmen’s school and to be worn with Naval Denims and Dungarees.
The Hell Cat Cap Frogskin Camo is 10 years in the making. From its nascent form as the first cap that Papa ever did with John Lofgren in Japan, the Corsair Cap was the beginning. Over a decade has been spent refining the silhouette, subtle changes made from a hundred small observations, and now Papa has the Hell Cat.
Hell Cat Cap San Marco Camo Built for the fight to hades and back and tough enough to withstand the netherworld of battle on the campaign trail, the Hell Cat is realized in the San Marco pattern, an Italian variant that draws its lineage from the Telo Mimetico, the oldest continuously used design in the world.
Devotion Cap Khaki Herringbone After seeing the film Devotion and watching the F4U and the F8F at the hands of pilot Jesse Brown, Papa knew he had to make a cap in a beautiful USN khaki twill that would take a beating as well. He has deliberately kept this cap clean and free of superfluous detailing so it looks as genuine as that one worn by Ensign Brown.
