PDW’s New Merino A.G. Watch Cap

Colder weather is sloooowly beginning to make its appearance again around the country, and the guys at Prometheus Design Werx are meeting the need with their new A.G. Watch Cap. This is good news for those of us who like a good beanie or toque when it's cold outside (vs. those who wear one year round no matter how hot it is or how sweaty they get skateboarding — looking at you, Ernie Two-Combs).

The A. G. Watch Cap is a fully shaped and knitted performance merino watch cap made in California. It's not just a tube sewn shut at one end with some cheap elastic thrown in. It's ribbed, true, but this isn't just a badly sewn tube stitched shut on one end with some cheap elastic thrown in. Don't worry — it won't look or fit like a vending machine condom on your skull. It's pretty damn comfy too. I know this because I've had one on my noggin for a week now in the mornings when I drink my coffee.

PDW says this is just the lead of a series of fully knitted wool and merino performance outdoor apparel to come. As they explain,

“We have much respect and admiration for this American outdoor classic that has been worn by US Service Members, and all manner of outdoors persons alike. However, we wanted to update this understated staple and create a new high standard iteration for today’s user. Taking the basic iconic ribbed knit appearance of the original, we sourced some of the world’s finest performance merino wool yarns, determined a versatile 2+ season wearable weight, and applied a true shaped knitting process to produce our reboot of this classic. PDW is also proud to be working with local knitters, and producing these watch caps in California. While the original issue watch cap stands on its own, we wanted to offer our updated interpretation of it. We believe anyone who will field ours, will find it highly versatile, much more comfortable, easy to care for, and retains that timeless and classic appearance.”

You can buy yours right here for $35. PDW is online here and on the book of face here. Make sure you follow them on Instagram (@prometheusdesignwerx).
