Soldier Blue Selvedge Denim Daisy Mae Hat (Hickory Stripe)
The new range of daisy mae hats from denim atelier Soldier Blue aims to combine quality vintage materials with a modern take on traditional design. This iconic hat shape has been mirrored throughout the decades since it was first introduced by the U.S military in the early 20th century. It boasts a classic 6-panel dome construction at the top which is luxuriously breathable and sturdy all at the same time, whilst the brim of this version is wide and serves as a brilliant shield from the sun’s rays. This range of hats has been designed and crafted in The Soldier Blue workshop which is located only a stones throw from our Son of a Stag shop on Dray walk. The head designer has painstakingly sourced and taken apart vintage materials and repurposed them to from something completely new. It has all been expertly sewn on a collection of vintage sewing machines dating from as far back as the 1890’s. The time and skill that it takes to produce these garments ensures that every stitch is made to count; a rare quality in today’s fast paced world of fashion production.
This version has been carefully constructed from vintage selvedge denims and sewn with a decorative Japanese sashiko thread to compliment the deep blues. The selvedge lines have been left on view and have been matched with some beautiful vintage kimono fabric. Super soft all cotton taping has been used throughout and heavy duty thread has been used front the stitching. This hat has been made with care, and made to last.
