Papu Nui Renders Its A-26 Cap in Shinki Roughout

The Papa Nui A-26 Shinki Horse Hide Cap in Rough Out is one for serious cap heads. Those who want one-of-a-kind hats you can’t find anywhere else, made with pride and engineered to be something you want to use forever.

Cut from roughout horsehide from Shinki-Hikaku tannery in Japan, this is quite literally some of the nicest leather you can find out there. Generally, Shinki hides are clean, free of blemishes, and seen as the pinnacle of equine leathers, so you can bet this hat from Papa Nui is in a league of its own.

Made in Japan by John Lofgren & Co., this Shinki rendition of the brand’s popular A-26 Cap features a Japanese olive hbt sweatband, olive poplin taped seams on the inside, a pliable brim so you can wear it flipped up or down, and a Papa Nui tag. It even comes with an olive twill herringbone carry bag, ‘cos it deserves it.

Available for pre-order for $273 from Papa Nui.
