The woven labels on our watch caps are made exactly like in the 1940s. From the material to the printing and the upside down sewing. Upside down? Yes! That is because the watch caps were intended to be folded twice. So on the second folding the labels would disappear on the inside. Once unfolded it it can be read properly. However while on deck items were worn in the most comfortable way and watch caps were mostly only folded once. This can be seen by many historic images from that era.
Since we pay a lot of attention to detail we attach the labels exactly like in the 1940s.
Therefore the upside down label is a proof of true U.S. Navy heritage!
