Jailhouse Hat in Ink/Golden


Inspired by team outfits of sailing teams and pitstop crews. Often sailors wore hats matching the team colors of their boats. A part of motor racing is to be visible to the crowds and for safety. Bold warning colors and striped helmets were essential.

The style is commonly referred to as "watch cap" as it was used by soldiers to protect them from wind and weather; when they were on deck for their watch.  The shape is based on the original WW2 Hat as worn on US Navy vessels.

This version has a double fold to adjust the rim to wear it either above the ears or to cover them when needed. It is hand finished, due to the sophisticated knitting technique it will mold to your head just after a few wears. Keep your head safe.
