This is a patch made in collaboration with John Wayne Enterprises to tell the story of life aboard John Wayne's private boat the Wild Goose.

This rescue buoy had the name, location, and burgees of the boat and Newport Harbor Yacht Club painted on it.  I asked Ethan if he knew if he ever changed it to say Newport, but he did not recall.

Hand Painted CIRCLE Patch by Dougie Mann.

  • One of one
  • Primed canvas circle patch with gold embroidered thread.
  • Navy Blue Waxed Canvas
  • 'BOAT' embroidery on back

"Boat Hat x Wild Goose" - This patch is part of a collaboration with John Wayne Enterprises.  John Wayne's son, Ethan Wayne gave us a rare journey through their extensive archival imagery of life aboard the Wild Goose and regaled us the stories of what it was like growing up taking trips all over the world and the kind of father John Wayne was.
