    From Simonds. It is linen, and linen lined. The color is even a little richer golden brown, but I can't quite get it right in the photos. It is very nicely made.

    Simonds' own picture may be a little closer in color, but is a little too orange or yellow.

    new vintage cap for Moco
    [​IMG]
    2 piece leather sweat with a open articulated section in between for adjustment for the brim belt
    [​IMG]
    "the better kind" logo & 2 stripes are embossed into the leather & the front piece of leather is folded back.
    Simonds does this to his leather sweats & I noticed it is very comfy & supports the break / drape between body to brim
    which results in a cool side profile or pull to the side angle (articulation)
    [​IMG]
    old school detail on buckle & snap
    [​IMG]
    Krazy fabric & weave, any guesstimate to its age gents ??
    [​IMG]
    Moco digs it & it is adjustable so he will have a few years use as he grows he is 2 & 1/2 now.

    the boys do take care of there hats well
    but
    for the kids I do prefer fabric sweats verses leather as I can dry clean EZ so this cap wont be a daily accessible
    :cool:

    Once again Moco proves to be the kid with the lid. Helps g-pappy has great taste and connections. That is one of my favorite vintage caps seen here so far.
