Seconded to the 15th AAF in Sardinia Italy 1944, Papa Nui out hustles even Milo Minderbinder in a game of supply and demand.
From relatives located on the Aeolian Island chain, word comes to the Papa of a supply of Axis M-29 Telo mimetico that can be had for a bulk Limoncello trade. The aim? Make this shelter cloth into caps for the Papa’s air crews to wear while ferrying supplies across the Mediterranean theatre in their converted junkers JU52’s. What’s left over from the Syndicate is available to you in this rare release!
Pure A-3 flyboy style, Americaningenuity, original Italian fabric, it can’t get any better than that!
All Handmade by Troy O’Shea so you know there’s none better.
-Vintage 60’s-70’s Italian shelter cloth.
- Each cap has an individual pattern lay depending on how the Camo falls across the fabric. * Photos are examples from the batch and not the actual you’ll receive. It’s a lucky dip.
- All cotton including natural canvas visor lining for superior styling options.
- Caps should be warm water rinsed and then shapes and worn till dry to achieve best results.
As soon as I saw a preview of the Chesty on IG I knew I had to have it. It’s design is pretty awesome and a beautiful tribute to the classic utility cover without being an exact repro which isn’t a negative thing my any means as it shows that design and originality are on point.
Out of the box the M was a bit snug with the bill flipped up but after my usual soak and wear until dry procedure it fits like a glove.
All in all it became an instant favorite amongst my Papa collection.
