Traditional cap with essentially mid-east European origin. It came to Poland in XIXth century from todays Germany. First considered as peasants headwear it became very popular when Pilsudski's Legions chose Maciejowka hats as standard uniform headwear. In mid-war period and after II World War Maciejowka cap was worn by former Legions veterans and patriotic members of society as a tribute to Legions and their Independence deed.
Although Maciejówka is essentially a Polish cap and strictly bound to Polish history and its dramatic moments, it is very simmiliar or even same to patterns that are called in other ways in another places of the world. This caps are known as fiddler caps or fisherman caps.
In our offer you will also find replicas of Pilsudski's Polish Legions Caps.
Cap is made with skin friendly materials: lining is made with viscose to keep good breathability, sweatband is made with split leather.
A superb quality product which exceeded my expectations. I have already ordered two other hats and I guarantee that you will not find a similar hat as well made at twice the price.
Love the John hat brings back great memories . Thanks great work
This is a very fine product and better than I expected. Soft supple leather that conforms to your head. I got a size larger than the chart and glad I did. Company was responsive to my email and made it to specs with cloth liner. The bill and neck cover are great and keep me from sunburn in my airplane, especially my neck. Highly recommend.
