img_1052The skipper shall, obvious, carry “kasjettlua” his head during the voyage. “Kasjettlua”, preferably “kasjettlua” with polished shadow, the Norwegian fisherman traditional headgear. A dying tradition, unfortunately. True enough “kasjettlua” is the  headgear to the Norwegian coastal suit.  Hjalmar Antonius Larsen (1881-1965) from the Færøya / Jovik in Folda tell that the boys got underwear, black suit and “kasjettlue” to their confirmation. From my home muncipality describes Rolf Sørgår boys arriving church for confirmation during the 1930’ies in “new blue suit, white shirt with stiff collar and “kasjettlue”. Furthermore kasjettlue with polished shadow”. My father Rolf Torrissen (1921-2004) always carried “kasjettlua” both on fishing.

This “Kasjettlue” is baught at Høvedsmann (www.hovedsmann.no)
