2023 Release Second Run.
Shipping is scheduled to begin in early to mid-June2023. Only the boonie hats are manufactured using the first run fabric. The finish of the second lot fabric is equivalent, so you may purchase a set-up and enjoy it. Please check your size and take into consideration the shrinkage rate of the fabric as described below. Especially boonie hats will shrink after washing. It will return to its original size as you wear it, but if you want to wear it loosely, we recommend you to go one size larger. For customers with the largest size, you can reduce shrinkage by gently stretching the hat when it is wet after washing and drying it in the shade.
This is a precise reproduction of the gold tiger stripe said to have been manufactured between 1966 and 1969. This is the first precise reproduction of MILITARIA 1911 .
This is a reproduction of a common cut manufactured by CISO (Counterinsurgency Support Office ), which existed in Okinawa at that time. The same fabric used for the jacket and trousers is used and manufactured in Okinawa, where CISO existed at that time, including the reproduction of historical background. The brim length is 6.5mm, which is not too long. The brim has a shape-memory wire at the end of it, which was used in some lots at that time. Therefore, you can wear it in any shape you like. In addition, the size tag in red letters on a white background, which was used for some Okinawan-made products at that time, has also been reproduced. Please enjoy the MADE IN OKINAWA boonie hat revived in the modern age. The texture of the fabric and the condition of the sewing have been reproduced as much as possible from the actual product, making this the ultimate reissue.
Our fabric will fade and gradually turn yellow like the original. You won't notice it right away, but it will age with repeated use, washing, and exposure to the sun. The fabric will change with age, but this is not a product defect. We inspect our products, but in the unlikely event of a product defect, we will replace it with an equivalent product or refund your money after we have confirmed the defect.
