Inspired by the A-3 mechanic cap that was issued in WWII, this ‘Denim Aviators Cap’ is the latest piece of Japanese denim headwear from Osaka legends, Samurai Jeans.
Sammie’s take on the mechanic’s cap uses the brand’s 15 oz. Otokogi denim that’s heavyweight but rewards its wearer with handsome fades and denim evolution. Yes, you might have blue hair for a while, and yes, 15 oz. isn’t quite what anyone would call summer weight, but, then again, you aren’t just anyone, are you? If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve been through the trials and tribulations of heavyweight denim and have been hooked ever since, but if you’re new to this stuff? A) I envy you, and B) don’t scoff at this heavyweight denim cap – it will look absolutely killer in a few years’ time.
