Reproduction 1914/15 private purchase kepi. These kepis are an identical copy of one of the originals in the Frogsacks collection, with the exception of the markings on the inside. As you can see in the comparison photos, they are reproduced right down to the small dome buttons and cloth chinstrap. The lining is twilled silk as per the originals. We had to source the silk from a vintage 50-year old dress that was made in Tunisia, as it's next to impossible to find in the first world! You can compare the original lining to our reproduction lining in the photographs above. The visor and sweat band are oil cloth as per the original. There are a very limited number of these kepis due to the lining material being so difficult to get. These are as good as it gets. The hats are hand crafted in our shop by John W., Frogsacks' very own haberdasher!
Khaki kepis are available by special order, e-mail Scott@Frogsacks.com.
