1930s-50s French Workwear Denim Cap

I’m not sure exactly the age of this cap, but it’s old! A really nice shape to it, with a 2-panel crown and 3 darts to the rear. Unlike many caps of the era, it doesn’t have a snap to the brim, and neither is the crown stitched to the brim. It’s made of very high quality denim, and features a sweatband made of the selvedge of the cloth. A really nice touch, that.
