Swordfish in Blue Bedford Cord
We teamed up with our friends at J. Press, purveyors of classic Ivy League style since 1902, on a collection of summer hats. The four Swordfish of this collection evoke that feeling of vintage East-Coast prep, while keeping that beloved long-brimmed shape that has been a favorite of ocean goers for generations.
Quaker Marine Supply’s founder and Coast Guard veteran, Joe Kadison, designed this hat with function in mind based on his own experiences on the water. Like many purpose-built items, it developed a singular personality along the way. To start, the bill is long. At 3 3/4” long, the Swordfish’s brim is 25% longer than your standard ball cap. Why? Because it actually offers sun protection when this long.
While most hats today are a standard 6-panel, this hat is constructed with 4 lateral panels to deliver a low profile that reduces windage. Like the original, it features four eyelets on each side panel that provide ventilation. It is made in sturdy corduroy to perform and last and has a dark green underbrim to absorb reflected light.
Sometimes, when you have the courage to choose functionality over fashion, you wind up back at fashion’s doorstep. We hope you enjoy this hat as much as we do.
