(100% Cotton Water-repellent Poplin Fabric 'Vancloth & Sons' / Synthetic Fur Lining)
Crafted in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
Bomber hat, also know as aviator hat, was originally developed for open-cockpit airplane pilots in the early days of the 20th century as they needed a gear to protect their heads and ears from sever weather at high altitudes. Monitaly’s Bomber Hat features key details of the original bomber hat, such as large earflaps with string, visor to be turned up at the front, and a grommet in the position of the ear to aid hearing. Our original “Vancloth” fabric and high loft synthetic fur fabric are chosen for functionality. The advantage of using synthetic fur lining is that air is trapped in between fur fibers and body temperature naturally warms up the trapped air, which helps keep you cozy and warm in a freezing day. Monitaly’s original “Vancloth” fabric is a water-repellent and wind-resistant 100% cotton poplin fabric. The smooth texture is achieved by tight woven construction, and when water is introduced to the surface of the fabric, the outer-most layer of fine yarn swells to lock out moisture and prevent the garment from becoming soaked.
