The Maine Watch Cap
“To Hell with Spain, Remember the Maine!” A battle cry on their lips! An homage from the Papa as he knits a watch cap that speaks to the century’s turn, to the birth of empire, to the beginnings of homogeny. The Maine Cap!
This 1898 U.S.N. Knit has been extensively researched from archival photos and reversed engineered by hand knit in 100% Corriedale Peruvian Worsted wool evoking the ‘seed stitch’ of yesteryear and saluting the iconic predecessor of all naval watch caps.
Stand the watch, be the pride of the fleet, wear the Maine Cap.
Available in Havana Black in an exclusive historical release.
