Description
 


Wool knit visorless cap intended for issue to aircraft mechanics. These are often associated with US paratroopers who tended to "acquire" them from the Air Corps personnel and wear them in lieu of the jeep cap. Although officially an Air Corps item, in reality, it's certain that a few of these could have ended up on the heads of any troops in WWII.
One size.


Our US Army Jeep and Mechanic's caps are made from U.S. Made olive drab #3 100% wool tubular knit cloth. They are sewn in our shop with the correct WWII era Merrow brand serger and Union Special chain stitch machines. Unlike other repros, the tubular fabric results in a cap with no seam at the rear, just like originals. The only difference from WWII caps, is that ours come in one size. We spoke to the mill and they explained that the newer yarn has a better "memory" than that of 60 years ago, precluding the need for multiple sizes.


Washing Instructions: These are 100% wool. Do not, under any circumstances put them in a washing machine or, God forbid, a dryer. You will end up with a fuzzy thimble. If you need to clean one of these caps, hand wash with cold water only and air dry. Not in a dryer on "Air Only/ Air Dry/Air", I mean simply in the open air. We will not exchange or refund caps destroyed by "operator error".
