Hi folks,

So, does anyone make a decent British Army mountain cap?

Cheers.

It's like the same wool barathea which original ORs shirts were made, kinda like a rougher version of SD barathea. The peak is lined with a very tight weave black cotton. They also came with a synthetic white wool cover,lines with tan cotton tape for edge binding which just slipped on over the peak and crown.

You're not thinking of starting a mountain troop impression are you Ranj? If so - awesome! If you need any help with any part, I'll try to do my best.

I'm currently starting to make repros of 'Breeches, Climbing' (only for myself at the moment) if you'd be interested in plans/a pair, but we'll have to see how well they trun out in the thinner cotton corduroy avaliable in this day-and-age...

The problem being that SOF made their repros out of SD barathea - the more modern greener stuff.

Good luck if you're going down the mountain troop line - it's fun kit to dig up :D
