With the popularity of the bucket hat rising, it’s only appropriate for one to be constructed from raw denim. Left Field just unveiled the Daisy Mae WW2 USN Bucket Hat in not one, but three options: a 10oz. Japanese nep in both selvedge and non-selvedge denim, and a 12oz. Cone Mills selvedge indigo duck canvas.
Known for bridging the gap between handcraft and mass production, the American made company has expanded from jeans, to everything from shirts, outerwear, sweats and headwear. You may remember their Pearl Harbor WW2 bucket hat from earlier this summer or their fitted ball caps, but this is the introduction of raw denim hats.
Inspiration for the Daisy Mae comes from the iconic headgear issued to Pacific Theatre GI’s in WWII. To achieve the reproduction, Left Field used machinery from an old hat factory including a special machine for the detailed stitching on the brim.
Daisy Mae is offered in three varieties of denim, two different weights, and two options of stitching. As always, Left Field’s products are made in the USA. Limited production should be noted, the Cone indigo is sold out of 13 units, and limited quantities remain of the other designs. Daisy Mae is available on Left Field’s website ranging from $95-$125.
