SKU: HAT-02 Categories: , , , ,


Dark Blue (US), Medium Grey (CS) or Grey Jeans (CS) wool with leather brim and chin strap. Made in the U.S.A.

The kepi, based on the contemporary French kepi, is most often associated with the America Civil War era and continued into the Indian Wars. Union Officers were generally issued kepis for fatigue use. The kepi was also popular with various state units and as privately purchased headgear. It is similar to the Model 1858 “Forage” cap except with a much shorter crown. This style of cap was much more commonly seen among Confederates than was the M1858 “forage” cap. Many Northern states and militias issued kepis, as the were seen as presenting a more military appearance and were commonly obtained by the soldiers themselves.

Available in small, medium, large, extra large and 2X-large.

    Absolutely love it.

    I’m usually afraid of ordering hats online for fear of it not fitting. But I had ordered a 21 7/8″ Union Kepi, and it fits perfectly. I love the wool material, and the lining on the inside of the cap. It’s durable, does not look cheaply made, and looks very authentic.

    Delivery was very timely, made it here to Oregon from Pennsylvania in a matter of 2 days, which was great!

    Would definitely recommend buying from this site if you’re looking to purchase a kepi.
