Just right for colder days! We patterned our 1944 USN Watch Cap after an original in our archive. This classic wool hat is the perfect companion for cold winter days.
The USN watch cap in this style has been favored for decades by US Navy sailors and personnel. Known from many pictures from the war time period this hat became iconic.
The name “watch cap” goes back to the sailor’s duty of keeping watch, on which they wore this hat.
The us watch cap was used by every us navy sailor – from the Atlantic to the Pacific- from destroyer crews to aircraft carrier deck hands.
We have made our Watch Cap according to 1940s specifications even including the authentic spec. label on the front.
Normally the tag would be worn on the inside and not on the outside therefore not visible.
Originally worn with one big or double turn-up.
