PAPA NUI CAP CO. STORY

  • N-3 USN GREY CAP.

    Responding to Admiral Kings demands, the Papa Nui Cap Co produced this unusual variant cap, the N-3 utility cap in ‘King’ Slate Blue. As the only company to be awarded a contract to develop this new working cap, surviving pieces are rare.

    This beautiful style has all the elegance and simplicity of style that it’s A-3 Army counter part has but instead is realised in a Japanese milled mini HBT fabrication with an unfixed dye method allowing a quickly developed patina consistent with the sun drenching of deployment in the vast Pacific campaign.

  • KNIT FOR VICTORY.

    Papa Nui watch caps, fully machine knitted in Japan or hand made in the big Sky country of Montana, Papa Nui Watch caps will hold you fast through the darkest nights, through tempest and typhoon and through winds as dire as any that lash the salted seas.

  • VUNG TAU VISOR.

    “Hey GI! You go RnR at Vung Tau? Better you buy visor!” So Mama-San says. She knows the Papa is ichiban number 1, and making your debut on Vung Tau’s sand deserves the best Saigon style sun visor money can buy. All Tiger camo styled with brass hardware, adjustable sizing and perfect for the afternoon glass off down on the beach.
