VINTAGE SAILING CAP

Today it's my cool Sailor Cap
Not sure what exactly it's from.  Merchant Marines? 
 It's pre WWII I'm pretty sure as the estate I got it from was full of old stuff.
 It's what the motorcycle caps of the 40's and 50's were based on.   Leather brim and wool body. 
 He bought it from the Del-Rey Famous Department Store.   Anyone know about this place?
 The inside leather band is turn in a few places but behind it you can see a woven grass or something that was used to make the original form.
Navy Buttons on the side.   I really dig this cap as I don't see many people wearing this and that's something I like.  It's cool Vintage Gear for Guys!
