This is not your ordinary 6 panel cap, this an American Trench 6 panel cap cut and sewn from 100% linen fabric with contrasting lining fabric and sweat band also in 100% linen fabric. This ‘not ordinary’ cap also has a small invisible sleeve to tuck away the excess strap material. The exterior linen fabric is a beautiful “denim” blue in a classic chambray weave. It will match well with pretty much anything, including other denim fabrics. The interior lining and sweat band are in a dark navy linen, which provides nice contrast and will not show dirt.
Why make such a big deal out of linen? We think of linen (made from the fiber of the flax plant) as the cashmere of the summer – in hot weather its performance goes above and beyond. Just like cashmere, linen is more expensive than other fabrics in its class, but it brings something extra to the table. It’s strong and inelastic fibers make it feel cool to the touch, it can absorb a fair bit of moisture without feeling wet, and it can shed moisture quickly. On top of all of that, it breaths incredibly well. There is a reason why the use of linen as a textile in hot climates goes back to antiquity.
This cap was cut and sewn at a factory in Newark, NJ that has been making high quality caps and hats for over half a century in the same location. The factory is known for two things – outstanding quality and being able to do anything. We are incredibly proud to say that our cap was made in the USA.
