  • 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 outer textile is an ESC-original traditional Takashima cotton canvas sourced from an artisanal textile maker located in Shiga Prefecture. This robust, high-quality fabric has excellent moisture absorption and temperature retention properties and boasts a comfortable texture unique to natural cotton. The tape section of the liner is constructed from the renowned Enshu Cotton Fabric's high-density and smooth plain wave fabric. Each fabric is made from 100% organic, unbleached cotton yarn.


Rose Madder fabric is dyed with natural Akane (madder) roots, an ancient Japanese dyeing technique used in many traditional crafts. Our colour intention is a subtle, soothing shade of rose that expresses the warmth and calmness of spring in Japan. The original heather colour is achieved by weaving the canvas fabric from the unevenly-dyed threads, beautifully transforming the subtle hues as light and perspective shift.

[ The colour of this garment will change over time due to the use of chemical-free natural herbal dye. ]


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 metal ventilation eyelets are also Japan-made. 


This garment was meticulously fabricated in Akita, Japan.
No raw materials of animal or petroleum origin are used in the main materials of this product (except nylon models).
