Description
 

Lewis J. & Issac Phillips was a major producer of forage caps, contracted for almost 775,000 during the war. Extant caps from this company appear in two main variants with some minor variations exhibited on others. This is the Type II variant, having a larger crown disc and squarer brim.

As with all of our forage caps it is made with lightweight wool, hand dyed with real indigo. It has an enameled bill and soft glazed chinstrap. You have choice of a crosshatched or plain sweatband and a black or brown polished silesia lining.

*Measure the circumference of your head using a soft tailor’s tape measure. Take the measurement starting about a thumb width above the eyebrows running above the ears and around the head, essentially where you want to wear the cap. Have someone else take the measurement for you if possible.
