Captain, my captain! These white peaked caps are commonly used by officers and NCOs of the German Navy. However, onboard only the commandant of the ship wears the white cap, others wear Navy Blue side caps as part of their uniform.

Also known as the combination cap or service cap in the US, this kind of headgear has long traditions on the seas, air, and land. The cockade makes it distinctly naval and the lack of golden oak leaves on the peak means these were worn by ranks lower than lieutenant commanders.

Features perforated leather lining with padding for increased comfort, removable cover to allow keeping it bright and white, and an adjustable steel band to retain the sharp form of the cover. The steel band can be removed in case you prefer the look of a crusher cap or must wear a headset.

Size info

Manufactured to European sizes, converted to US sizes by us. True to size but very stiff: consider a larger size for relaxed wear. Peaked caps are shallow and sit roughly 38 mm (1.5") above the ears.

German surplus

These look rather good, some may be unissued entirely. Even if the cap has seen some use, the men and women of the German Navy are disciplined, not some ragged band of stinky fishermen. The peak may have suffered from flattening during storage and transportation.
