As you will already know, Papa Nui without an angle is like Betty Grable without curves! With that in mind, we introduce the Papa Nui Fuji Hat. In his latest exploits, the South Pacific’s Ace of Caps develops a new boonie hat. Borrowing from his jungle-hut house boy and Nipponese Cinderella, Fujiwara Takeo, the Papa takes his man-servants’ Imperial Japanese Army-issued brimmed hat and reinvents this rare acquisition in Japanese milled twill cotton and adds all the oriental flavour of the original including Fuji’s name printed on the inside and a beautiful hang tag bearing the Hino Maru and ‘Buun cho kyo’, declaring, “continued luck in the fortunes of war”.
