Woody Boater is proud to announce that we are underway to remaking high quality Authentic Yacht, boater caps. The feedback from the eBay find was mixed. “I wouldn’t be caught dead in that thing” vs, “I have been looking for one of these for 5 years. I want 2”, pretty much sums up the feedback. It’s a love hate thing. But for those of us that are in the love category, I am marching forward. I have secured the original manufacturer in California, that is still in business, and was the provider to many of the Hollywood movies and stars. This is not the crap that you get online for 5 bucks.. This is the real deal! This is the one. The subtle differences are in the details. A patch vs just embroidery on the hat, the 100% wool material, Brass buttons, and the rope around the bill. They are made to size one at a time just like back in the day. And yes they still have all the material, and some left over patches. So we are off to LA in a week to visit the factory. I will of course report from there with images and more details…You can order these in any color you want. As long as its black or white. We will also be working on some other options in the future, like a flat leather bill, kacki and other color wool, perhaps a crusher style…. and new baseball cap versions coming up. All very cool stuff. So… if you want one, they are $135.00 each, will take 6 weeks to make and I will need your head size yes even fat head size .. like me are available… They will be made just for us in this edition. I need 12 or more orders to move forward, currently we are at 6… So speak up.
