Good day to you, Ladies and Gentleman. Our shop – “Mann & Co” – proudly presents leather kepi hat. This kepi is 100% handcrafted from genuine veg-tanned leather, all parts hand-stitched. Here is the list, that gives you all the needed information about our product and it's properties:
Top, side, visor – made of 2 mm veg-tanned leather, finished with Feibing's "Atom Wax" to achieve additional smoothness and rich gloss. All parts hand-stitched with waxed polyester thread.
Edge trimming – made of soft 1 mm calfskin. The trimming is hand-stitched with waxed polyester thread.
Straps – made of 2 mm veg-tanned leather, finished with Feibing's "Atom Wax". Straps is attached to the shako with "Sam Brown" studs, and can be easily removed and attached back to the hat, if needed. Strap also can be turned at any angle, that allows it to fit either under the chin or under the back of the head.
Strap buckles and loops – classic "roll buckles" made of steel and anodized with brass.
Studs – made from brass, all in standard 1' threading.
WE SHIP WORLDWIDE
We ship via Express Mail Service (EMS). Although being a bit expensive, it is relatively reliable, provides tracking information of the shipping progress. Shipping usually takes from 4 to 8 business days (very rarely more than 8 days).
In addition to all this, we want to add some important notes. Practically, our Steampunk kepi is made from veg-tanned leather and some small brass parts – with no use of aluminium, ‘’recycled leather’’, synthetics, etc…The only unauthentic part is waxed polyester thread – and this, is only for the reason of reliability – we don't want the edge trimming falling apart after two or three years of usage. That’s why, it is not cotton thread, but polyester.
This elegant, yet simple design was crafted to be a practical and fully wearable headdress. Lacing on the back of a head allows adjusting it's size, and the strap can be detached, if necessary. Edge trimming provides additional rigidity to the form of the hat, yet also makes it more comfortable to wear.
Leather kepi continues the line of our Steampunk accessories, such as brass goggles and altitude masks, and it is made in the same fashion and with the same approach.Read More (View all photos)
