The hat was standard issue for the US Army / AAF officer’s dress cap, worn by pilots and non pilots alike. However, because bomber pilots wore headsets over their caps during a bombing mission or run, the wire stiffener to keep the hat stiff would make the headset more comfortable causing the sides of the cap to become crushed or folded downward. The “crushed” floppy appearance gave the pilot who wore the hat a look of the seasoned veteran. The crush hat identifies the officer as an experienced pro, and was as much a part of the officer’s identity as his leather flight jacket.” The winter cold weather 100% wool caps were worn with the winter timer along with the A-2 AN-6552 Flight Jacket. The cap includes the leather visor, buttons and Officer’s gold US Army Insignia. The hat was typically worn with the A-2 Flight Jacket. The hat is not a reproduction and is an authentic WWII government issue.
