Buzz Rickson's Type A-3 Mechanics Cap (Olive Drab)
The A-3 cap was originally designed for aircraft mechanics of the USAAF during the Second World War, but it soon spread to a much further fan base thanks to its simple design and comfortable fit! The cap is cut from an icon olive green HBT cotton and features a classic six panel dome construction with a closed back for the perfect comfort fit. The rounded bill it cut slightly longer to protect from the sun, and this supple cap can be easily folded away into a pocket. How convenient is that?!
This cap comes complete with the USAAF stencil in black on the rear, for added heritage authenticity. We love this cap as it offers a welcome alternative to more common baseball styles, and the quality of the manufacturing is truly military level durable. Available in sizes 7 1/4 (Med), and 7 1/2 (Large).
