Papa Nui Sub Hunter Cap

The Papa Nui Sub Hunter Cap came about after a request to the Papa from Ernest Hemingway. The story goes that in 1943 Hemingway needed a cap perfectly suited for chasing U-Boats in the Gulf Stream. He contacted the Papa with his requirements and the Sub Hunter Cap was born. Naturally, Ernest loved his Sub Hunter, so it has been perfectly reproduced to the Papa’s exacting standards. The Sub Hunter is constructed from a rugged Khaki Herringbone Twill with a contrasting brown Canvas brim. As hard-wearing as it is handsome, the Sub Hunter Cap will age beautifully over time.

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

As with all Papa Nui caps, the Sub Hunter is a hard wearing piece and is ready for anything you can throw at it.

When necessary, we recommend machine washing your Sub Hunter cap on a cold cycle. Allow to dry naturally. If your Sub Hunter fits you perfectly, avoid tumble drying as this may result in slight shrinkage.
