Traditional duty cap with essentially mid-east European origin. Cap is made of skin friendly materials: wool, lining is made of viscose to keep good breathability, sweatband is made of natural leather. It also has a belt with a buckle, a lacquered visor and 2 decorative buttons.
It came to Poland in XIXth century from today's Germany. At first it was considered as peasants headwear, then it became very popular when Pilsudski's Legions chose Maciejowka hat as a 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 Maciejowka is essentially a Polish cap, strictly bound to Polish history and its dramatic moments, there are also some similiar patterns throughout the world (its name is just different). This model of cap is also known as fiddler cap or greek style fisherman's cap.
In our offer you can also find replicas of Pilsudski's Polish Legions Caps. Available in big xxl and xxxl sizes. Precise handmade craftsmanship from Sterkowski family-run manufacture.

These are the most well made hats I have owned in my life. Not very many people take the time and effort to make caps of this caliber. Not to mention this style of cap is incredibly hard to find nowadays. Thinking about purchasing one? I think you should. You'll see what I'm talking about once you hold one in your hands. It is crucial to patronize businesses such as these, ones that are not interested in maximizing profits at all costs for their shareholders on Wall Street. No, this is a business that cares so much about its products and quality. Last but not least, these hat are guaranteed to turn heads. Literally, these caps court quite of bit of attention. You're going to have to get used to be seeing dapperly stylish. Pair this with a peacoat, collard shirt, tie, slacks, and dress shoes. Or maybe a cardigan sweater, collared shirt, bow tie, slacks, and dress shoes. Either way, you'll be the most stylish one in the room. Get used to the royal like status.
I recently ordered a Sterkowski. I live in Minnesota, USA. It was very well made, exactly in the size I ordered. I would order again as soon as I need a new hat. The delivery was timely and the hat was inexpensive, but one of the best quality hats I have ever ordered.
I am incredibly pleased with my Maciejówka Model 1, which I just received from Sterkowski. Sterkowski is a fantastic company that carries out a solid craft according to the old school. The result is products with very high quality and fit. Every time I take a hat or cap on my head, it feels like I never want to take it off again. Short series make you feel unique when you wear your hat or cap, and the wide product range makes you happy to return to buy another product and expand your collection. I can highly recommend Sterkowski and their products, simply a really good buy.
Love Sterkowski hats, looking about
Love Sterkowski hats, looking about me I see eight others I purchased through Amazon. Could not find this particular version on Amazon so purchased directly. Not my last...
As always, the quality of craftsmanship, durability, and perfect fit of the grey Maciejowka cap that I purchased are unrivaled. Sterkowski hats are made to a much higher standard than many in Western Europe and well worth the price.
Love the hat, sizing perfect, received in timely manner. Very pleased
A very fine hat/cap
I ordered this cap as my hunting cap. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size (my fault). I had a fast exchange and very nice contact and service from the Sterkowski team. If you want one of these caps (or others) by it here. Fine quality and fast and great service! Thanks a lot! Sven Peters, Germany
Another fantastic cap from Sterkowski. Perfect for musicians and the ship's crew.
Love my hat and wear it at least twice a week. Lots of comments on it from Melbourne people. Can't wait to purchase another sometime soon
