Based on the caps worn by American baseball players in the 1900s, Nigel Cabourn brings back that vintage cap design in 8oz Japanese denim. Cabourn tweaked the design a bit to look more like the caps worn by mechanics and ground staff during World War 2. The six panel design features a reinforced peak with top stitching, bound seams, a metal snap fastener, and has a deeper brim than the previous release.
