From the vaults of history we have this great new addition to the Papa x Troy O’Shea Custom Works.

Repurposed into a beautiful A-3 cap shape, Troy has meticulously hand laid up his patterns allowing the signature black stripe to fall across the top of each visor. A top the cap, the ‘squatchee’(covered button)has also been picked out in black to harmoniously pull the visual aesthetic together and add a touch of sportiness to the style: This could be the team cap for the ‘8th & I’.
