TSPTR x John Lofgren Mitchell Camo Ballcap

Based on an original 1960's USMC private purchase hat, the TSPTR Mitchell Camo ballcap is fully hand-made in Japan by john Lofgren and Co using traditional methods and Union Special sewing machines. Made from medium weight 100% cotton woven in Japan. 

Fitted 60s baseball style 6 panel cap with taped seams, military green underpeak and hidden elastic on rear of cap just like the originals means one size fits all.

Exact reproduction of the US Marine Corps Mitchell or 'leaf' camouflage. US Army trials of 1953 produced two new camouflage patterns that were adopted for limited use by military personnel. Both patterns saw widespread distribution only as a reversible shelter half (1953) and reversible helmet cover (1959), with one pattern printed on each side. The USMC Mitchell or "vine leaf" pattern, consists of large overlapping dark green, lime green & ochre leaf shapes with brown twigs on a pale green background. The helmet cover and shelter were used during the Vietnam War while tailor made combat clothing in this pattern also appeared, made in Japan or South Vietnam from shelters or Asian made fabric copied from the US design.
