Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

This is one of the absolute classics: the poplin boonie hat and is a very loose copy of the issue version. The hat itself shows typical Vietnamese characteristics: large eyelets and multiple stitching to the brim. The lining is of the typical cheesecloth type Vietnamese material and the inner of the hat is made from multiple pieces of green fabric some of which are very dark with a bluey hint: this is typical of ARVN garments. These hats would have been made and sold to soldiers who required a second hat or had not been issued the standard hat at the time. The eyelets are somewhat rusty and there have been some well-executed repairs using glue to hold them in place, however they are fragile. Nonetheless the hat remains an essential item of Vietnam War headdress. Code: 52527
