Marlon Brando "The Wild One" Motorcycle Cap
Marlon Brando “The Wild One” Motorcycle Cap
This is the mother of all motorcycle caps. We offer an exact replica of Brando's famous cap from the 1953 movie "The Wild One". The cap is made from parts and patterns bought from Lancaster Brand, the company that made the original cap for the film.
All leather and frame components used in the original cap came from other companies; unfortunately those companies are gone or they have switched excusively to using plastic/vinyl materials. It has been our job to recreate all those original components accurately as well as make the tooling that would let us make the parts efficiently.
We used heavy 22 oz weight 100% worsted wool elastique (not elastic) exactly as the original fabric. The result is a cap that features all leather and period materials (no plastics at all) and it is really a fine looking and amazingly comfortable cap.
Our reproduction features:
- Original patterns
- 22 oz weight 100% worsted wool elastique
- Real leather visor
- Multi panel construction
- Fully lined
- Real leather sweatband
- Silver or Gold chin strap
- Proudly hand made in the USA
Finally, it seems opinions differ on the color of the chin straps used in the film so we offer both.
