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.
The classic wool knit cap has been reconstructed by Stevenson using a cooling linen material. The simple design allows you to enjoy the feel of the material. The crisp yet cool linen yarns were chosen so that it can be worn during the warm season. Because it is a standard item, it also has the functionality to be used in three seasons.
Stevenson Overall manufactures entirely in Japan on antique machinery. It produces incredibly durable and characterful garments featuring some unique construction details.
