Good day to you, Ladies and Gentleman. Our shop – “Mann & Co” – proudly presents leather shako hat. This shako is 100% handcrafted from genuine veg-tanned leather, all the parts are handstitched. Here is the list, that gives you all the needed information about our product and it's properties:
Top, side, visor - made of 2mm veg-tanned leather, finished with Feibing's "Atom Wax" to achieve additional smoothness and rich gloss. All parts handstitched with waxed polyester thread.
Edge trimming - made of soft 1mm calfskin. The trimming is handstitched with waxed polyester thread.
Straps – Straps - made of 2mm veg-tanned leather, finished with feibing's "Atom Wax". Straps are attached to the shako with "Sam Brown" studs, and can be easely removed and attached back to the hat, if needed. Straps also can be turned at any angle, that allows them to fit most head forms.
Strap buckles and loops – classic "roll buckles" made of steel and anodized with brass. Very durable.
Studs – made of brass, all in standard 1\8' threading.
WE SHIP WORLDWIDE
We ship via Express Mail Service (EMS). Although being a bit expensive, it is relatively reliable, provides tracking information of the shipping progress. Shipping usually takes from 4 to 8 business days (very rarely more than 8 days).
We ship in 1-3 days after recieving cleared payment (we usually ship on mondays and thursdays). If there is a need for an urgent shipping, please, do not hesitate to contact us.
In addition to all this, we want to add some important notes. Practically, our steampunk shako is made from veg-tanned leather, all parts handstitched – with no use of aluminium, ‘’recycled leather’’, synthetics, etc...The only unauthentic part is waxed polyester thread – and this, is only for the reason of reliability – we don't want the edge trimming falling apart after two or three years of usage. That’s why, it is not cotton thread, but polyester.
This elegant, yet simple design was crafted to be a practical and fully wearable headdress. Lacing on the back of a head allows ajusting it's size, detachable straps (one for the chin and one for the back of the head). Edge trimming provides additional rigidity to the form of the hat, yet also makes it more comfortable to wear.
Leather shako continues the line of our steampunk accesories, such as brass goggles and altitude masks, and it is made in the same fashion and with the same approach.
