A DILAC Hat being sported with great panache in its natural environment.

The original peaked 'Cap Combat DPM', issued with first generation DPM combat suits in the late 1960s. Expanded, the full term was the 'Don't I Look A Cunt in this cap?' hat. Also known as the 'Jap Hat' as it made everyone look like a Japanese sniper.

Nevertheless, the 'Cap - Cunt' has earned a certain popularity amongst the cognoscenti since it enjoyed a period en vogue in the SAS Regiment.

There is also a way of cuntifying the jungle hat by folding the sides and rear up under the crown so it resembles the old-style head wear.
