The Z-Special watch cap-comforter is an ingenious and perplexing design to the uninitiated. It is essentially a tube of knitted wool that is sewn together at both ends. So when it is completely unfurled it is a short scarf. When one end is tucked into itself and worked through to the other end and folded over, it can be worn as a double layered knit cap. The WWII era ones were sometimes stamped with manufacturers and government property marks but all incorporated the Commonwealth Broad Arrow design as a mark of provenance as does ours.

Recently I’ve been working with Bill Yao from the MKII watch company in the USA, because many of our ideas have an intersection of inspiration and we wanted to harness the opportunity to bring each other’s markets into alignment, great caps, awesome watches!

Both Bill and I were completed intrigued by this cap so recently when some original pieces were made available we jumped on the opportunity to base ours on these period examples.

This season we issue the Z-Special in Canadian Khaki as an homage to our Commonwealth Brothers and also to the US 10th Mountain Division who trained up on the border.
