  • Product with ethical values.
The 5-panel cap, which originated among delivery personnel in the USA in the early 20th century, became an iconic fashion accessory during the 80-90’s club scenes and skater culture in the US, Europe, and Japan.

Today, it remains a classic item intertwined with various subcultures. ESC has reimagined and blended the 80’s classic 5-panel cap design with contemporary sports aesthetics, adding ethical and refined elements using high-quality materials and naturally sourced colours.

This includes 100% organic cotton textiles and traditional, top-quality silk fabric. The material of the invisible brim core is constructed from a blend of plant-derived and recycled resins, primarily sourced from sugar cane.

The liner’s tape component is crafted from Enshu Cotton Fabric's high-density and smooth typewriter fabric, made from 100% organic cotton.

Every cap is meticulously crafted in Japan's renowned sewing workshops.

Available in 3 materials / 4 colours.


The shell is made from the high-quality Oshima silk fabric, a traditional craft originating from the Japanese island of Amami Oshima, with a rich history spanning over 1,000 years. Hand-spun silk yarns are dyed in mud before being hand-woven into this plain-weave silk fabric, a process that involves nearly 50 separate stages. The fabric has a soft sheen and is smooth, lightweight, and wrinkle-resistant. In addition, the iron absorbed during the mud-dyeing process not only gives it a rich colour, but also enhances the yarn’s suppleness. Additionally, it possesses insect-repelling and deodorant properties. This traditional ocean waves pattern, which accidentally bears a resemblance to modern camouflage design, was discovered at a kimono shop in downtown Tokyo and is an extremely rare, one-of-a-kind antique fabric.


The ESC logo features the brand's iconic elephant by fusing the design elements of a traditional Japanese family crest with contemporary graphic features. The brass badges are forged with expert craftsmanship in a workshop located in downtown Tokyo, a historic production area renowned for creating the finest insignia emblems.


The core of the brim is developed and produced by an innovative Osaka-based hat material manufacturer, founded in 1924. The material is a blend of plant-derived and recycled resin mainly sourced from sugar cane. Compared to conventional petroleum-derived materials, CO2 emissions can be reduced by approximately 32 grams. The side ventilation eyelets are crafted from of Japanese metal

ATTENTION [Oshima silk fabric

Portions of this garment are made from rare pure Oshima silk, a traditional product of the Japanese island of Amami Oshima.
Colour fading may occur due to the nature of the dyeing process. Please be careful of colour migration, especially when wet. If water-soluble stains adhere to the fabric, remove them by dabbing gently with a steamed towel and do not use detergent. If acidic stains (fruit juice, vinegar, etc.) adhere, wash immediately with lukewarm water and then consult a specialist. Due to the characteristics of pure silk, wet or damp conditions can cause colour fading, colour migration, mould and odours, so always use and store in dry conditions.
