The story of the Papa Nui MASH Cap
Taking its inspiration from the classic M*A*S*H movie and TV series, the Papa turns a childhood sat in front of a television into a brand new cap for this season with the Papa Nui MASH Cap. It’s realised in Medic Maroon and comes with off-white hand cut and chain-stitched numbers.
