1969-2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo and Gemini space programs and, as you all know, The Papa was there when the capsules splashed down off the Atoll somewhere in the South Pacific. To celebrate the USS PAPA NUI and it’s recovery team, the summer 2019 season launches into orbit with a selection of caps straight from the Atoll Rocket Riders Club vaults and is guaranteed to blast you upstairs like a bat outta hell.

Small batch exclusive collections that are hand made in incredibly small quantities usually in super rare fabrications. Papa Nui X Troy O’Shea bring the best of conceptual imagination and pure old world manufacturing skills together in a cap collection for the true connoisseur.

To help commemorate the 50th anniversary of space, the Papa has gathered up a pile of old, used and dead-stock tees from the Atoll’s laundry and made them available for printing. No two the same, each is as different as the original owner. Some are perfect others are fucked up to perfection, holes, thinning stained and torn. Water based inks will age and fade until this rag becomes a favorite or a chamois to clean the car. Printed sizes are a guesstimate so please provide some basic preference information like the chest measurement on your best tee, condition requirement etc. I’ll do my best to meet your needs but no guarantees, these tees are vintage and as such they’re twisted warped shrunken washed and at times short, consistent with what you’d buy in a vintage store.
