British Campaign Army Pith Helmet - Six Panel Wool Cashmere Camp Plaid

$ 96.00

Men or womens pith-helmet style hunting cap with brim made from LL Bean lodge plaid that's made from cashmere wool.

Jolly good show!

Handmade and hand sewn from LL Bean's finest fall cashmere wool jacket, which still includes a cuff detail with three corozo button, each 5/8" with four holes.

Some call this style a ghillie or gillie hat; it's a hat worn in the bush, but it suggest a hunting lodge with a crackling fire inside and oil paintings of ducks a flight mounted on rustic wooden walls.

The 2-1/2" wide brim is top stitched. The hat is lined with satiny golden polyester.

Womens wool hat 22" (55.9cm) around inside, and 5" from the brim to the top.

Many CUSTOM styles. For example, this style is reminiscent of a Sherlock Holmes hat, but his is called a deerstalker hat. If you want one of those, just ask. I'm an engineer, I can figure it out!

Materials: fine plaid wool from recycled L.L. Bean outdoor jacket in lodge plaid; plaid burgundy wine grey wool; satiny polyester lining, corozo buttons on the cuff, interfacing, 20 percent cashmere 80 percent wool. 

Look inside! Every listing of a Cherry Pat Hat includes a photo of the inside of the hat, because it's important to see how well a hat is finished. Besides, often there is a surprising detail or design element to keep under your hat.

Each hat is carefully packed in pale pink tissue paper, then inside a plastic sleeve tied with ribbon, then inside a sturdy box surrounded with additional clear packing tape to keep moisture and travel grit from entering the box.
