Select a Size

This is the Buzz Rickson classic cotton watch cap made to the same standards as they were produced in the 1940's. After some wear the difference between these and the modern mass produced ones is clearly apparent in the quality of the cotton and construction.

These caps were all season issue caps for USAAF airplane mechanics and ground crew in the 1940's. They were sometimes worn by elite U. S. Army paratroopers (who were transported to battle by USAAF aircrews in USAAF aircraft). The paratroopers often traded and/or sold some of their specialized items to the USAAF personnel in exchange for specialized USAAF items respective to the USAAF
