UES 14.9oz Indigo Wabash 'Mechanic' Cap

Looking for a functional cap with fantastic construction, premium materials and the charm of old-world design? UES has got you covered!

Inspired by functional work caps worn by mechanics and machinists in the early 20th century, UES has recreated the design with added attention to the beauty of indigo aging.

The mid-heavyweight 14.9oz Wabash is slowly woven using vintage shuttle looms to create a unique and irregular texture. With time and wear the indigo thread-dyed fabric will fade to reveal a beautiful sky blue look!

To recreate the atmosphere of old-world charm, UES has used a 6-panel crown construction with a lined inner headband to make a comfy and durable garment that you'll love to wear for years to come! The shortened brim is inspired by vintage mechanic caps, originally designed for practical use while working underneath cars and in tight spaces.

If you're looking for a cap with a vintage-inspired design, durable construction, and the beauty of indigo-aging, UES Mechanic Caps could be some perfect choices!
