Adopted in 1942 by the US Armed Forces, the "AAF Mechanic's Cap, Type A-3" became a popular cap for not just mechanics but also flight crews due to its wearability and baseball cap-style brim which was often molded upwards in order to keep the sunlight out of the wearer's eyes.

Inner brim measurement: M: 58cm (22.8"), L: 60cm (23.6")

Made in Osaka, Japan
