Papa Nui A-3 1940 Special Edition
Papa Nui has dug deep in the archives for this special 1940 edition of an A3.
This is the 1940, pre-war contract of the A-3, an experimental release that bridges the gap between the late 1930s flat cap style of the A-2 and the ubiquitous WWII mechanics cap we all know and love.
The 1940 contract cap has been painstakingly recreated here in a limited edition piece that’s fully crafted in Japan in the best production facilities available. Its unique lace front draws inspiration from American outdoor wear and is an early attempt at production proficiency for multiple sizing and custom fitting whilst its fabrication is a direct nod to the herringbone twill dominance that replaced indigo denim at around this same period.
