Description

Designed for use by aviation mechanics, this practical and stylish cap was worn by USAAF ground crews throughout WWII.

Made from a 100% cotton Herringbone Twill fabric in the shade of Olive Drab, the skull part is constructed in a 6-panel configuration. Each seam is reinforced within by white hbt taping and the flexible peak is also reinforced with 14 rows of stitching.

The A-3 cap is a design that is so quintessentially American.
