PN-Corsairs-fsc - Original Papa Nui Corsairs Cap

The Papa knows caps. A lifetime spent under the Pacific sun has taught him a thing or two about a visor of substance to hunker under when the sun would shrivel you to a New England hag, and so with a generous interpretation of the WWII A-1 sun visor the Papa introduces the original Corsairs cap. A true aviators cap inspired by all things 'field made' and featuring a customised visor built around a period profile 4 panel crown. The Corsair launches onto the decks in a beautiful USMC Frog skin camouflage perfect for the Papa's fighting Battalions on sand or sea.

M - 58
L - 60

USD99

Estimated arrival? Or did the restock already happen and I have only my lack of swiftness to blame?

Who has a glam shot they don't mind sharing?  A bucket hat one would be appreciated as well?

And can anyone comment on the fit?

Any experience about the shrinkage after a 40°C wash?

there are many glamour shots on the papa's instagram account https://instagram.com/papanuisays/

In terms of fit I found it to be larger than the tagged size
