German WWII Kriegsmarine U-Boat Captain Visor Cap
New Made Item: During World War II, U-boat warfare was the major component of the Battle of the Atlantic, which lasted the duration of the war. Germany had the largest submarine fleet in World War II and Prime Minister Winston Churchill wrote "The only thing that really frightened me during the war was the U-Boat peril."
Our WW2 U-boat Captain's (Kapitanleutnant) visor cap is manufactured exclusively for IMA and is the highest quality hat for the price on the market today. It was copied directly from a period original and is the finest we have ever seen. It comes complete with heavy embroidered wire "gold bullion" oak leaf & wreath with a metal "gold plate" eagle insignia. It has the correct mohair type band, removable white cotton top with an all leather bill, chinstrap and sweatband. This elegant hat features a richly hand heavy embroidered wire embroidered "gold bullion" Kriegsmarine Captain's oak leaf pattern on the cloth covered patent leather visor. Affixed to the Mohair type cap band is a supremely high quality hand embroidered wire "gold bullion" oak leaf wreath and cockade. Both of these gorgeous insignias are high relief and three-dimensional, just as they would have been in 1940. The interior is lined with a lustrous Navy-white satin and finished off with celluloid style sweat-diamond bearing correct WW2 maker marks. Hats of far lesser quality sell for double or triple this price on the market today. Now is your chance to command your own U-boat bathtub armada.
