Papa Nui Grease Monkey Cap

The Papa Nui Grease Monkey Cap is a reborn version of the classic A-3 Cap. A new release for this season, it comes in a beautiful 9oz Japanese denim that is made from 100% Zimbabwean cotton. It comes with the exceptional quality and long list of details you’ve come to expect from Papa Nui Caps, including a contrasting Olive drab herringbone twill flip-up visor, herringbone twill sweatband and match taping. The piece is brought together with contrast olive stitching throughout. Despite being issued to aircraft mechanics, the original A-3 Caps became popular with anyone who could get their hands on one due to their comfort and practicality. The Grease Monkey is no different and can be worn with the visor down or flipped up, in true 1940s GI style.

Brand

Papa Nui Cap Co. is the creation of John Tesoriero and draws on decades of experience in the heritage clothing industry, along with an enviable collection of vintage clothing and militaria.

The brand creates caps with vintage military, utility and surf influences, inspired by the resourcefulness of GIs and their ability to reimagine and repurpose their kit to suit their environment. Much more than simply a reproduction brand, each Papa Nui cap has a story behind it.

The finest military-spec materials are sourced from Japan and each cap is battle-tested under the rays of the South Pacific sun. Manufacturing is left to the capable hands of John Lofgren & Co., who ensure the finished products are made to the highest standards of quality and ethics, resulting in a cap that will last a lifetime and only look better with age.

Papa Nui Cap Co. was our first brand at Those That Know and we stock every release, including many pieces that are not available anywhere else. As John himself says, “anything else is just a cap”.

Care

Papa Nui caps are low-maintenance pieces designed for rugged wear.

When necessary, we recommend a cold machine wash and line dry. If you are happy with the sizing of your cap, avoid tumble drying as this may result in slight shrinkage.
