Based on the headwear worn in WW2 by mechanics and flight crew in the US Air Force, the Mechanics Cap is a hardwearing baseball cap. Although these caps were intended as a functional means to keep the sun out of mechanics' eyes whilst preparing aircraft for take-off, their use quickly extended to other parts of the Air Force due to their practical nature.

The Mechanics Cap is made from 100% cotton ripstop, which is often found in military clothing and was worn extensively by the US army during the Vietnam War. The fabric was first conceived by the US Air Force and was designed to be less susceptible to rips and tears.
