This 4-panel cap is based on an original example of a B-1 Summer Flying Cap, a standard issue during WWII to USAAF flight crew. They are constructed exclusively for Hudson's Hill by Norma Hildebrand of Stockbridge Sewing Works. Norma is an expert hatmaker, who specializes in vintage baseball caps and uniforms. In fact, you may have seen her handy work in our [LINK TO BASEBALL CAPS] vintage minor league baseball caps, at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, and even in famous Hollywood movies like "A League Of Their Own." She uses antique industrial sewing equipment, durable sweatband and brim materials, and fashions each one with a full-grain leather strap and solid brass closure for adjustability.
Proudly made in Pennsylvania.
