Great Summer Cap!

Another fine piece of headwear from Papa! Lightweight fabric that is perfect for hot Summer in Japan. Perfect shape and size. ありがとうございました

Perfect for Honolulu perfect for Tokyo!

Beautiful Tropical Lid

This cap is fantastically well made. The Palaka cloth is feather-light and means this is going to be a daily companion from the South Pacific to the New England seaside this summer.

Wonderful Waikikian!

Beautiful cap, amazing fabric and attention to detail. Lovely as always.

fantastic shape. nice deep blue pattern. you really just can't find this type of pattern anywhere.

If you are tired of that current baseball hat out there - get this one!

Some ideas are just slow burners but this Hawaiian Palaka style is an absolutely beach classic!
