Official Houndstooth Cap

Here you see the latest creation by Official, the newest fitted cap player in the market. They created a classic – the Houndstooth Cap.
“Michael Maggio married Maren on a beautiful indian summer Sunday in 1972 in a nondescript park in Northampton. His father gave him a genuine Harris tweed houndstooth sports jacket to wear and this beautifully crafted brown/aqua micro houndstooth fitted is a tribute to Michael’s wedding choice of rocking a “sports jacket.” Two months later Michael was drafted into the Vietnam war and lost his life just outside of Saigon in 1973. He was the 45,941st American to have died by enemy action in Vietnam since the war began in 1961. To this day his son looks at that photo of his mom and dad in their moment of bliss and is inspired to make a houndstooth hat as a tribute to his late father’s keen fashion sense.”
