Watch Cap-Swans Island-gather here

Swans Island

Watch Cap

Like a stalwart seaman depicted in an Andrew Wyeth painting, this traditional cap has a certain rugged appeal. This hat is inspired by the classic government issue caps given to Navy sailors. The watch cap historically provided a simple and functional cap that could be worn by everyone. It is designed with a rolled up brim up to provide extra warmth around the ears. Swan Island's version adds more interest with a simple, easy to memorize "mistake rib" texture while maintaining the classic silhouette.
