As per usual, the best available version of a classically American thing—in this case, the old-school watch caps you've seen on WWII naval officers, Boston dock workers, and every third person in every Rocky movie—comes from Japan.
This is a tri-fold short watch cap knitted with 100% high-quality merino wool yarn, which is highly antibacterial and deodorizing while being a natural material. Based on a vintage knit watch, it is shallow and has good elasticity. It is recommended not only for use in the city but also for outdoor activities because it regulates your body temperature well, with high moisture-wicking levels.
Mr Fatman is one of the private labels of what is probably the best hat studio in Tokyo, "The Fat Hatter". The brand collections are inspired by the Golden Age 1950s hat culture and collects direct influences from workwear, military, garage, classic motorcycles and sport cars to create the best headwear we have ever seen.
