Mechanics Cap Denim
Based on the headwear worn by mechanics and flight crew in the US Air Force during WW2, the Mechanics Cap in Indigo Denim by Nigel Cabourn is a hard-wearing baseball cap. Although these caps were intended as a functional means to keep the sun out of mechanics' eyes whilst preparing aircraft for take-off, their use quickly extended to other parts of the Air Force due to their practical nature.
Woven in Japan by fabric specialists Hishitomo, the 12oZ denim has been woven on narrow looms using 100% cotton and designed to combine the appearance of denim with the soft hand-feel of wool. This gives the mechanics cap a relaxed, worn-in feel.
